Update Extra: Demi's Difference

Members of the Smith family and representatives from Demi’s Difference present a check for $25,000 to Texas Children’s Hospital to help families dealing with a child’s illness pay for extra expenses.

DANBURY — Since founding Demi’s Difference, Jarrod and Hayley Smith have succeeded in honoring their daughter’s memory by lending a financial hand to families of sick children.

Since the organization’s inaugural fundraiser in April, the Smith family has coordinated with Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston on how best to use the estimated $300,000 that was raised.
