Heap Family Starts Hugs From Holly, Asks For Random Acts Of Kindness

Posted May 2, 2017

After suffering the tragic loss of their three-year-old daughter, Holly, the Heaps have started Hugs From Holly.

Former Raven Todd Heap and his family suffered a tragic event last month with the loss of their three-year-old daughter, Holly.

Now the Heap family has started the Hugs From Holly campaign, which anyone can participate in simply by spreading random acts of kindness.

“Holly was known to give the best hugs, and her love for everyone and everything in life was contagious,” the Hugs From Holly website reads. “Let’s spread this joy as we scatter sunshine in Holly’s honor on her birthday.”

Holly’s birthday was May 3, and the Heaps have outlined three ways people can participate on Wednesday:

  1. Wear pink in Holly’s honor
  2. Make a plan to share hugs and spread love and joy through random acts of heartfelt kindness for those in your community. Smile more. Compliment somebody. Write a kind note. Share treats (or chicken nuggets). Do a free lemonade stand.  Leave a bigger tip than usual. Pay for the person behind you in the drive-thru. Donate a book in Holly’s honor. Turn up the music and dance… the list is endless. Be creative!
  3. Capture your family spreading joy and post your pictures using the hashtag #hugsfromhollyday

The Heaps are asking for everyone to get on board by sharing “kindness and love to make Wednesday a HOLLYday!”

The website also includes an opportunity to make a donation to the Holly Heap Memorial Fund through the Baltimore Community Foundation. The foundation benefits a number of charities in the Baltimore area.
