The Tears Foundation Charlie and Braden Project

Charle and Braden projectCharlie & Braden Project

The Charlie & Braden Project is inspired in memory of Charlie & Braden Powell, who lived in the community of The TEARS Foundation. The TEARS Foundation hopes to reach out to families who face the tragic, unexpected death of their child and offer to lift a financial burden by assisting them with their child’s funeral expenses.

The Charlie & Braden Project is a new program being launched by The TEARS Foundation in order to compassionately assist newly bereaved families after the unexpected death of an elementary school aged child. Through The Charlie & Braden Project, The TEARS Foundation offers financial assistance for families whose child (ages 1 year to 12 years old) has died unexpectedly due to an accident, homicide or suicide.


As a new program, financial assistance is only available to families in New Jersey and Washington State.

If you are a family needing assistance from the Charlie & Braden Project, go to the Tears Foundation to download the request for assistance.
