The Kaden Kares Foundation was organized by his aunts, uncles, and extended family following Kaden’s untimely death from a farming accident at the age of just 13. The over-arching goal of the Kaden Kares Farm Safety Initiative is to prevent farming accidents, injuries, and fatalities, particularly those involving children. The method is what makes the organization unique. The initiative is an online video competition that engages farm families to actively participate in farm safety. A panel of judges will select the winning videos, each receiving cash awards. The more the foundation gathers, the more it will give away. The impact of the initiative will be two-fold: those that actively participate in the video production will learn by getting hands-on farm safety experience, those that watch the online videos will learn as well. Kaden’s family hopes to honor his memory by saving young lives from within the industry he loved so much, agriculture.
