Please join Heller's Facebook Group, Random Acts of Kindness Because of Heller.


On the day of Heller’s life celebration, his grandmother (Mapa) said these words:

“Many people have mentioned the fact that this tragedy (the loss of our sunshine) is heightened by the fact that it happened around Christmas, and they wonder how we will ever get through another Christmas.

Christmas is Christ’s day and we will continue to celebrate Jesus on that day! But December 22nd will be a day reserved for celebrating the life of Heller, and we will celebrate on that day (and perhaps a few days prior to) the way he would want us to. On that day, we will go out and make a change, do a good deed, and let the world know that a little boy once lived for that special reason.”

So, on December 22nd, Heller’s friends and family will honor his memory by spreading random (and deliberate) acts of kindness to others. We encourage you to go out and spread some kindness of your own.

Then, if you would like to, please leave a comment or send an email to and share what you did, what you witnessed, or what others did for you so we may share Heller's impact with others. So we can remember that we are still celebrating his life!

A Note from Heller's Sister - Show Kindness to Your Pets

People have busy schedules. Our lives are filled with work, school, errands, tasks, entertainment, and other people. Our pets’ lives are filled with nothing but us. 

While we are trying to work, eat, watch TV, get ready for the day, and spend time with our loved ones, we have to remember that we are the single loved one of our pet. 

Our dog might annoy us, pulling our attention away from whatever or whomever we deem more important, but this is because we are most important to our dog. We are all they have, but it is easy to forget this amidst our busy schedules.

Our pets are there for us every time we turn to them for playing, snuggles, or companionship. We need to provide for them, graciously, as well. Give your pet a treat, a back rub, and some extra attention when dolling out kindnesses, because it is all they live for. 

Be kind to your pets by spending time with them during your busy day; they are gifts worth giving back to.
