It’s Official!



We are proud to announce that Rees’ birthday, December 19th, is now officially Richard “Rees” Specht Kindness Day in Suffolk County, NY.

Samantha and I are honored that Legislators Anker and Muratore sponsored this proclamation making the birthday of our little boy “Kindness Day”.  It is our hope that others will be inspired by the spirit of our little Rees to help make this world a better place, one piece at a time…  This honor could not be better timed, as it helps to ease the pain of knowing that this friday would have been Rees’ 4th birthday.  Happy Birthday in heaven little man.  You have a day named after you…  wow.  Mommy and Daddy love you to the moon and back.  Happy “Kindness Day”, Reesie.
