Henry Repeating Arms may have only just completed its Silver Anniversary Pledge, but the good work of Guns for Great Causes continues! The storied lever-gun manufacturer's Guns for Great Causes campaign marches on with the donation of 50 limited-edition “Team Kaia” rifles. The rifles are available online, and all proceeds will be presented to the family of 8-year-old Kaia Lauro to provide direct financial relief for mounting medical expenses.


Kaia was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma in 2019, a rare childhood cancer that formed in her adrenal gland and later spread to her bone and bone marrow. Treatment started immediately following her diagnosis with a grueling 8-hour surgery. Since diagnosis, Kaia has undergone countless chemotherapy treatments, painful immunotherapy sessions, Metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) radiation, focused radiation, stem cell infusion, and blood transfusions. 

Mariann Tepedino, a friend of the Lauro family and advocate for Kaia, brought the child’s story to the attention of Anthony Imperato, Founder & CEO of Henry Repeating Arms, who immediately got the campaign in motion.

“Time and time again, I find myself humbled by the unwavering generosity and support from the firearms community for a total stranger whenever we unveil a new Guns for Great Causes campaign, and I am confident that this will be no exception,” said Imperato. “More humbling though is the tenacity and courage with which Kaia forges on with her friends and family at her back and a smile on her face.”

The Henry “Team Kaia” rifle features a unique brushed metal finish on the receiver cover and barrel band, genuine American walnut stocks, a large loop lever, a 17” blued steel octagon barrel, fully adjustable sights and a magazine tube with capacity for 12 rounds of .22 LR or 16 rounds of .22 Short. Exclusive to this rifle is the highly detailed, whimsical design on the buttstock, which is laser engraved and painted by hand in full color. The design features the pony that Kaia frequents for rides at a local farm, a tiara of flowers as a nod to her love of fictional princesses, and a gold awareness ribbon, symbolizing hope for pediatric cancer. The words “Never Ever Give Up” are engraved along the flowers. Baron Engraving of Trumbull, Connecticut, donated the artwork, engraving, and hand-painted embellishments.

To purchase the “Team Kaia” rifle, visit henryusa.com/teamkaia. The first and last rifles in the series are up for auction to enhance fundraising efforts. The auctions close on October 11th at 9:00 PM Eastern.

All firearm purchases must ship to a federally licensed firearms dealer. To learn more about Henry Repeating Arms and its products, please visit henryusa.com.
