February is the month in which Gordie was born. He would have turned 32 on February 22nd had his life not ended tragically due to hazing and alcohol overdose when he was just 18. Who would Gordie have been today? His family and friends cherish the time they shared with him--and we all benefit from them sharing his story with us. On February 22nd, take some time to remember Gordie and commit to looking out for those around you. We can all celebrate his birthday by taking his lifesaving message to heart. Happy 32nd birthday, Gordie!
Last year on Gordie's birthday, we launched
Gordie Kindness Cards
to encourage random acts of kindness that spread Gordie's story and help #RememberGordie (you can
print your own cards here
!). Read on for how the Gordie Center is going to honor Gordie's birthday in 2018!
