We had the privilege of personally donating all of the kids pajamas collected at Blake’s memorial. A big and sincere THANK YOU to each of you that contributed to the cause with Blake in your heart. We had an amazing count of 415 total pajamas that went to three local shelters. The San Diego Rescue Mission, YWCA and Center for Community Solutions serve local families experiencing homelessness or trying to escape domestic violence. Collectively, they have more than 80 children come through each night with their mom or family, and only having the clothes on their back.
The people who accepted the donations were so incredibly gracious – as they all had families in their shelter with children who would receive their new pajamas as soon as that night. In our conversations, they asked how we arrived at a children-specific pajama drive. Fighting back tears, I was able to share a little bit about Blake’s story, and that they were collected in his honor. I told them about all of you and the hundreds of good deeds #ForBlake captured on this page, and our hopes to make a difference in the lives of other kids. The emotion of Blake’s story and this beautiful movement of kindness resonated. At different locations, several people with glassy eyes shared a similar sentiment – the world needs this right now.
Thank you for being a part of Blake’s story and keeping his legacy of good deeds alive.
