Foundation Promotes 'Random Acts Of Kindness'
Last updated 4/4/2019 at 1:21pm
Have you recently experienced a random act of kindness in Brevard? Has someone paid for your breakfast or your coffee order without your knowledge?
If so, you may have been touched by a movement in memory of 9-and-a-half-year-old Jameson Courtine who passed away on Feb. 27.
His death has left a large hole in his family and community.
Jameson's Joy took off immediately as one of his friends decided to perform random acts of kindness in Jameson's name, and #jamesonsjoy quickly became a widespread "Random Acts of Kindness Day" in many communities and across the country. Jameson's family has now formed The Jameson's Joy Memorial Service Foundation.
"It is our hope to keep this legacy alive in Jameson's honor," said his father, Daniel Courtine.
The foundation hopes to accomplish the following:
•Build a ninja warrior playground course at a local park;
•Continue inspiring random acts of kindness across the world;
•Purchase books to inspire parents and children to read together;
•Provide a camp and recreation scholarships to individuals;
•Provide toys to children during holidays; and
•Shine the light of Jesus across the world.
To kick off fundraising for the Jameson's Joy Memorial Service Foundation, a benefit concert has been scheduled for Saturday, April 6, at Brevard Community Church, featuring national touring band The Sounds of Liberty from Liberty University.
The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert will begin at 7 p.m. Admission is free, with donations accepted during the event (cash or checks can be made payable to JJMSF or Jameson's Joy Memorial Service Foundation). Donations can also be made to the Go Fund Me Page https://www.gofundme.com/jameson039s-joy.
