For information on supporting Kenzi’s Causes and its programs, visit www.KenzisCauses.org. Kenzi’s Causes was founded in 2007 after Jessica Bachus’ daughter Kenzi was stillborn at 24 weeks. Overcome with grief, Jessica felt compelled to channel her emotions into something that would honor Kenzi’s memory. With this notion, Kenzi’s Causes was created so that Jessica and her family could provide dolls to young girls at Christmastime who would otherwise go without. Jessica collected over 150 dolls the first year and since then Kenzi’s Causes has expanded, providing support to over 50,000 children across the state of Colorado. Jessica and her husband Kyle have three living children and are dedicated to serving the community they live in.
