Who would Gordie have been today? His stepfather always thought Gordie would become an actor or director--he had a passion for the stage and had been making elaborate movies from the time he learned to operate the home video camera. We don't get to know who Gordie would have been because his life ended tragically due to hazing and alcohol overdose when he was just 18. Gordie would have turned 33 this month, and 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 33rd birthday, Gordie!

How will you remember Gordie? We offer Gordie Kindness Cards to encourage random acts of kindness that spread Gordie's story (you can print your own cards here!) on his birthday and every day. #RememberGordie and help save lives by sharing his message.
