Kasey Kitchen, the actor’s representative, says the project will continue in his honor. “We have every intention of bringing the campaign to a successful conclusion in the near future. Defending his legacy and continuing to strive to be better human beings is the duty of all who cared for him and loved him, so that we too can one day leave behind something much greater than ourselves “, he comments.
“Changing other people’s lives also improves yours.” – Cameron Boyce
