Brady Rogers Memorial Bursary Fundraiser

brady.jpgSaturday, July 21st, our community was shocked, and deeply saddened by the sudden and unexplained death of a local teen, Brady Rogers. Brady and his closest friends and family were at his home celebrating his high school graduation when Brady collapsed and died.

His close knit circle of friends have been reeling ever since, searching for answers, and trying to comfort one another. Brady was larger than life in spirit, personality, and even in his 6’4 red haired, blue eyed frame. He was one of those kids who left an impression on everyone who’s path he crossed. He loved his friends and family deeply and wasn’t afraid to show it.

Brady’s friends have spent the better part of the week, creating tributes to Brady in the form of orange ribbons and posters which they painted the town with, especially along the funeral route from the funeral home, to the community center where a service for Brady was held, with a full house of 700+ people.

My daughter came to me on Monday, asking if I could create a polish, in Brady’s memory, and donate the proceeds to the Brady Rogers Memorial Bursary Fund at Kingsville District High School, which he graduated from just weeks before. I told her if she and her friends came up with a colour inspiration, and a name, I could have it done in time for them to wear to the funeral service.

Roger That is a beautiful sparkly blue holographic polish that absolutely dazzles.  The color inspiration came from Brady’s sparkly blue eyes and the name, Roger That, was his Twitter name.

Gentle Ginger was created after Roger That and was inspired by Brady’s ginger red hair and gentle nature.  Gentle Ginger is a bold coppery orange with a beautiful shimmer throughout.

My daughter Mackenzie and I paid a visit to Brady’s parents- Mark and Susanne Rogers, and left them with 55 bottles of Roger That to be sold for $10 each, with 100% of the proceeds going to Brady’s Bursary. All 55 were immediately purchased, with many requests for more. Girly Bits has donated 100 bottles to the family, with 100% of the money from those sales going into the fund. Both Roger That and Gentle Ginger will continue to be offered online with $5.00 from every bottle sold going to Brady’s Bursary.
