Dominic’s Ripple is a charitable fund dedicated to honoring the life and memory of Dominic May, whose light, love, and compassion brightened the lives of his family, friends, and all those lucky enough to be counted within his circle.

Following Dominic’s funeral, we were taken aback by the number of heartwarming stories—some from individuals we had never met—about what others were doing to spread kindness, compassion, friendship, love, and positivity in Dominic’s name. It was amazing to think that one five-year-old little boy started all of this, like a drop in water, just by the way he lived his life.

As Dominic’s kindness, compassion, friendship, love, and positivity quickly began spreading, we created #DominicsRipple as a way to ensure that the circle of people touched by Dominic only extends farther, and that his positive impact may continue to grow.

The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.
