Today, January 20th, is Noah's birthday. If he were still with us, he would have become a teenager today.
Noah's incredible energy and huge heart touched so many around him. He was the first to volunteer for virtually any job. First to offer a kind word. And first to give a hug to someone in need.
It's no wonder that one of Noah's favorite activities was volunteering at Feed My Starving Children, where children and adults hand-pack meals formulated specially for starving children, and then ship the meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. This was the perfect activity for Noah: helping people, working hard, and being part of a team... with a little competition thrown in too, as teams compete to see who can pack the most meals during their session.
To honor Noah's memory today, we encourage you to:
- Offer your support to Feed My Starving Children, in Noah's memory. There are a variety of ways you can help further their mission.
- Read through your favorite memories, and post your own memories of Noah. Add a photo or video too.
- Donate to the Bucklin Family Fund, where funds will form a new foundation to help families grow closer through the power of technology. We're in the formative stages now -- lots of paperwork and planning -- and can't wait to share this exciting work with you soon.
- Keep praying for Noah's friends and classmates; they're wearing blue today in his memory. He made a huge difference in the lives of so many. Please pray that those whose lives he touched will continue to put their trust in God and their hope in the future.
As always, thank you, beyond words, for all you've done - and continue to do - to honor our boys' memory.
