"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."

The simplest, yet most meaningful way to honor Dominic and support Dominic’s Ripple is by spreading positivity through simple acts of kindness. The widespread outpouring of positivity following Dominic’s passing was what inspired the direction of our charity to begin with. We want his ripple to grow! Help us spread positivity in Dominic’s name — and tell us about your acts of kindness in the comments below!
I never met this special guy, but I know his grandma. In the winter following his accident, she was visiting her childhood friend, my mother in-law, and drove 2.5 hours to meet our one-year-old daughter, who had long been cozying up in a beautiful quilt Dominic’s grandma had made by hand and shipped to Massachusetts. I’m sure Dominic had one just like it; our older daughter does too. We talked a lot about Dominic that day. And while I could feel the immensity of her grief, it seemed to lift, if only a little, the longer we talked about him. He was an amazing child with an amazing story. The best part is that Dominic’s story is still unfolding today. I think more people should bear witness to that story. I think more people should become a part of it. And so I built him this website. I never got to meet you, Dominic. But I’m so glad I got to know you.
I remember that day, Brian. Mary Kay is always up for a little outing and it was a good time for us to chat during our trek to the Boston/Duxbury area. During that visit it was my chance to get to know Dominic a little better, even though I did not know him personally, I feel as though I do know him spiritually now. What a precious soul he was and his spirit still iives on in our hearts
today. Rest in peace dear sweet Dom; we all LOVE you.
I grew up with Meghan and Mike (Dominic’s uncle). My daughter Olivia shares an exact birth date as Dominic. I was lucky to get to know Dominic a little bit as I am a special education teacher for Madison and spent some time in his classroom at PSA for a couple of years. He was a light in that classroom. Happy and always including everyone. He was a great friend. When I heard of the accident I was heartbroken and wanted to help in anyway I could. Nothing seemed good enough. As his birthday approached he was on my heart so much. I was planning to meet my daughter at school for her birthday lunch and I couldn’t help but think of a Dominic. He would be turning 6 too and I wanted to honor him and celebrate him on his birthday. So when I drove through McDonalds to buy my daughter her birthday happy meal I bought one for the next child in Dominic’s Honor. I’ve told Olivia (my daughter) about him and how they share a birthday and that we will spread kindness for him.
