ReesSpecht life is dedicated to the memory of our little boy, Richard Edwin-Ehmer (Rees) Specht, who we lost on October 27th, 2012 at the age of 22 months. Our mission is to make the world a better place in his name. It is our goal to show that through random acts of kindness, we can all be everyday superheros and restore the sense of Community, Civility and Compassion that seems to slipping away in our fast paced world. We can all do something special, we can all be Rees' Pieces, we can all ReesSpecht life!
Drowning is the number one cause of accidental death of children under 5. Watch as Little Rees Specht learns the importance of being safer in and around the water. Please invite your children to watch this with you and share it with as many people as you can. With your help, we can help educate children all over the world about how important it is to “ReesSpecht the Water”
A special thank you to our National Water Safety Sponsor:
