Event Description

The Kordyn Haas Foundation is a legit and registered non profit organization. The foundation was created in 2013 in honor of Kordyn Lewis Haas born on February 24, 2010. The foundation was created when Kordyn Haas's life sadly ended at just two and a half years old on October 24, 2012 due to a tragic accident involving a malfunction in his families vehicle. unknown at the time the vehicle had a defect with the neutral safety switch which enables the vehicle to be shifted with the engine being off and without applying the brakes. The vehicle became a death trap for Kordyn as somehow he managed to hit the shifter while standing on the seat while he was helping clean the car, Kordyn was standing up browsing through the cup holder handing pennies to his mother who was just an arms reach away in the back seat. " All the sudden Kordyn says Mommy" as he looked at her smiling, thats when I realized the vehicle just started rolling and it started going faster down the inclined drive. Because Kordyn wouldn't sit down and was leaning towards the open door, my first instinct was to jump out to grab him however the open doors knocked me backwards while the vehicle was rolling, sadly I was not able to get to Kordyn in time and he had fell from the vehicle where he died instantly due to his injuries. This tragic accident happened in a matter of seconds, investigators explained after the accident that they were able to sit in any seat and apply only a very small amount of pressure with out the brakes applied and the engine not running and managed to shift the vehicle in any gear which in compliance would cause it to roll like it did. only a few select auto make and models that have a actual recall for this faulty feature! If it were not for the help of family, friends and the community we live in we would not have been able to bury little Kordyn.We can never thank those people enough for making sure Kordyn had everything he needed when it was his day to shine...the day he was laid to rest. We will forever be thankful for those who helped during our time of need. The burden of loosing a child is torture we no longer have Infront of us what was part of our whole world so I cant imagine the devastation of not being able to have a place here on earth to go visit him at, a place where we know his body is lay to rest at. All the people who helped us during the worst time imaginable in our lives gave us something that could never be payed back, that being a sense of peace and closure for Kordyn. And a place to go visit Kordyn where his body was laid to rest , that is the closest we will physically ever be to our son again -with out the help we received we wouldn't have that. So in honor of Kordyn we created the Kordyn Haas Foundation to help families during tragic times when it involves children, we want to give back to the community during their worst times imaginable like they gave to us during ours. Since we are just starting out we are currently only able to expand funding in our current city but maybe one day this Foundation will be able to help many others around the world.We also will help with a child who perhaps was injured somehow who might need medical equipment insurance wont cover that the family doesn't have the funding for.We can also help with headstones for a child that has passed away, there are numerous situations we provide funding for when it involves a child. Of course non of this would even be possible with out the help of all of you, we raise funds to make this possible by donations, having benefits, selling t-shirts and so fourth- this is how we are able to help families who come to us needing help. Our foundation consists of several board members who work very hard to make this possible as well.unfortunately we know that tragedy can happen to anyone at any given time and we just want to be there to help these families so they don't have to worry about the financial burden during an already tragic and devastating situation.

Watch the road, friends.....

OK, Friends.....  I had an accident, and laid down my Electra Glide, and was in a coma for a few weeks....... I am back to work now, healthy and alive! I will ask everyone reading to please pay attention to everyone in front of you....every day.....apparently, the waste of human existence that was in front of my Harley completely disregarded me...and cut me off, which caused me to lock up the brakes on my bike and lay it down.  (Hell, even with me bleeding and out cold on the…
