Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to honor Thomas’s life by promoting living kindly and making responsible choices in all aspects of life, including driving. We will do this through example, gathering and sharing information, reaching out to our community (earth) in times of need and to support especially the various issues that Tom took to heart such as homelessness, children's illnesses, and general acts of Good Samaritanism, and to address laws concerning the prevention of wrong-way drivers on our highways.
Our charity honors the life of Thomas, a kind, giving, Good Samaritan son, father of 2, husband, brother, friend killed by a wrong-way, drunk driver at the age of 24.We are the vessel thru which he will remain a positive presence. We are officially incorporated thru the support of Tufts Law School since 11/03/13.
We reflect what was important to Thomas, which was to honor God and give of himself to others. Tom knew that love has no boundaries and that differences do not have to separate us from coming together in kindness to help others and give from the heart.
Our focus is on promoting kind and responsible living thru example, teaching, gathering/sharing information, reaching out in times of need, raising funds/goods in times of crisis, illness, etc, and in support of other helping organizations. Our primary efforts address the matters that Tom took to heart, such as homelessness, children's illnesses, etc.
Our first act was to start an annual coat drive for homeless/needy people as inspired by his buying a coat for a homeless man he saw sitting outside of a mall shivering. Thomas was out of work and couldn’t afford it, but wouldn’t walk away. In 2016/17 we distributed over 1,000 warm coats in Massachusetts and NY.
We host an annual free giving picnic in memoriam, encouraging giving among all members of our community. Those who join our foundation must pledge to promote kindness, and responsibility in all aspects of living by example and teaching.
