Kayli Memorial Fund

“On June 21, 2006, we were blessed with a beautiful little baby girl named Kayli Jean Bearden,” says Tasha Johnston, Kayli’s grandma. “On August 26, 2008 she was taken from us by an act of child abuse, by a friend of the family.” Tasha began a vegetable garden and pickling as therapy. In 2015, she decided to establish the Kayli Memorial Fund, designated for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Kern County, to preserve Kayli’s memory and bring awareness to abused and neglected children.
