During Reed's journey the name TEAMREED began to describe our team of warriors who stood alongside us. It was made up of friends, family, neighbors, classmates, church family, and even strangers who were moved by Reed's story. This team became our support system, our safety net, those who had our backs in every way as we were faced with the most difficult season of our lives. We were and are so very grateful to have our TEAMREED supporters! Many of them have now come beside us as staff and volunteers for REED's SEEDS!
Matt and I officially began the ministry of Reed's Seeds at the beginning of February 2017. However the heart of this organization began way before that. This organization has been modeled after the heart, life and character of our son, Reed Garrett Butler.
In December of 2013, Reed was diagnosed with an inoperable Brain Tumor, Stage III Anaplastic Astrocytoma. Over three years he received radiation and chemotherapy treatment which he endured with great resilience and grace. This past October 2016, Reed went to be with Jesus .
Reed loved deeply and lived selflessly. He often would see those hurting that others would look past. Reed would reach out in love to help them by giving of his very own possessions, cheer them up with his beautiful bright smile, or encourage them with his words of faith. Reed was bold and courageous in ALL that he did and never backed down, not even when diagnosed with cancer. In the midst of all of his trials Reed remained true to his character- full of hope, love, and joy. He sowed these seeds in every life he touched. Reed loved the Lord Jesus Christ with all of his heart and is celebrating with him in Heaven today! It is our hope with this organization we may continue to sow Reed's Seeds in many more lives as we move out in action serving those in need.
Reed's Seeds relies solely on our community for financial contributions and support. To ensure the continued success of the organization we hold fundraisers and seek individual and corporate donations. Our organization receives no State or Federal Funding.
