Family members of two of the Tree of Life shooting victims are asking you to help remember their legacy with random acts of kindness this week.
Cecil and David Rosenthal, two brothers among the 11 killed when a gunman stormed the Tree of Life Congregation in Squirrel Hill last October, were known for their kindness and love towards everybody.
"Our brothers were kind to everyone. It's important to pass that on," said Diane Rosenthal, their sister.
The Rosenthal family and ACHIEVA are encouraging random acts of kindness this week, as part of the #LoveLikeTheBoys campaign. You can download and print these cards to help honor Cecil and David, and use the hashtag to share your acts of kindness on social media. The website says, "Family and friends referred to David and Cecil as 'the boys' because of their innocent, kind-hearted nature."
The website even offers suggestions on how you can spread kindness this week, from donating food, clothing or blood to people in need, or calling an old friend and visiting an elderly neighbor. You can also click here to purchase #LoveLikeTheBoys merchandise. Sales benefit the Cecil and David Rosenthal Memorial Fund, providing financial support to others living with disabilities.
Former Steeler Brett Keisel posted a video on Twitter , supporting #LoveLikeTheBoys in honor of the Rosenthals and all of the families affected by the Tree of Life shooting.
ACHIEVA helps to support and empower people with disabilities and their families in southwestern Pennsylvania.
