Pay it Forward in Memory of Casey
We’ve been so inspired at Salon Khouri by the good works of others. And we noticed that when people do nice things for other people, it makes not only us feel good, and the people we help feel good, but it also (hopefully) inspires others to do the same. You know the term, “pay it forward.”
One year ago today, a friend lost her precious little boy to atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT), a rare form of brain cancer. He was just 6.5 months when diagnosed and fought until he was 14.5 months. You can read more about Casey here. We wanted to do something to help the family, and asked what we could do. Casey’s mother simply asked for people to perform random acts of kindness to honor Casey’s memory. She asked, “Donate anything to any charity in his name, help an elderly person carry their groceries out to their car, mow the lawn for the old lady down the street, anything you may not normally do but can do within your means.”
She also asked that people post what they’d done for others on Casey’s CaringBridge site. To honor Casey on the one year anniversary of his passing, we ask that you do something kind for someone today. To help lift the family during this difficult day, we would love for you to post your random act of kindness to their CaringBridge site.
Thank you, as always, for helping! Our clients are kind, as is evident in the many charitable efforts you have helped us with over the past seven years.
