Local family starts random acts of kindness campaign to honor hospitalized 15-month old son
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A local family has started a campaign asking for people to complete random acts of kindness in honor of their 15-month old son who has been hospitalized for nearly a month.
For reasons still unknown, 15-month old Blake Davis stopped breathing on the 4th of July. He was rushed to Rady Children’s Hospital where a team of doctors continue to work tirelessly to figure out what is wrong with him.
To help boost young Blake’s spirits, family and supporters are asking people in San Diego to perform random acts of kindness and post it to social media using the hashtags "Team Blake" and "For Blake."
A Facebook group called For Blake currently has over 1,000 members and is filled with posts showing random acts of kindness done by members of the group. The group also provides updates on Blake’s condition and the reasons why they are going through with this campaign.
"In an effort to elevate the positive energy around Blake, please honor him by going out of your way to help or do something nice for someone, even a stranger. Big or small, please share your experience with us. It will lift our spirits and we will tell Blake about the impact he is making in our world."
A GoFundMe page has also been set up to help with Blake’s medical expenses. As of 10:20 p.m. Thursday nearly $37,000 of the $100,000 goal has been reached in 17 days.
Although future treatment is unclear at this point, Blake will continue to remain at Rady’s indefinitely until a confirmed diagnosis, course for treatment, and long-term care are practiced proficiently.
