After Heap tragedy, “Hugs from Holly” day

Posted by Darren Urban on May 2, 2017 – 4:45 pm

In the aftermath of the tragedy with former Cardinals tight end Todd Heap and his daughter Holly, there is an inspirational message planned for tomorrow, May 3, deemed #hugsfromhollyday.

From the website hugsfromholly.com: “Holly was known to give the best hugs, and her love for everyone and everything in life was contagious.  Let’s spread this joy as we scatter sunshine in Holly’s honor on her birthday.” There are suggestions on how to be involved in Hugs From Holly, and there is also a donation button in order to give to the Baltimore Community Foundation, where Heap played the majority of his NFL career. People should wear pink, and generally do random acts of kindness.

It’s a way for something positive to come out of a terrible situation. Take part if you get a chance.

    Thanks for the info. Cards fans are the best in the league. We will rise up for a former Cardinal who needs our support. Please Cardinal fans, watch the kids around the pool this summer, no more tragedies.

    What a wonderful way to celebrate a life and make a difficult day into something positive and uplifting. Practicing random acts of kindness and demonstrating generosity of spirit, compassion and love for our fellow man is a mentality we all need to get back to and strive for as our children look to us as examples.
    Losing a child at any age is something you never get over, no matter their age, and choosing to celebrate their life by asking people to do something kind is a tribute that will keep their memory alive more than any kind of memorial.
    Thoughts and prayers to the Heap family and best wishes for a day filled with hugs and acts of kindness in memory of their little angel. I see Baltimore will be joining Phoenix in remembering Holly on Hugs for Holly Day, and hopefully this will spread each year.

    Unspeakably sad. Can only pray.

    I see the Ravens lit up their stadium in pink for Holly–pretty classy of them, and I’m hoping that the Cardinals will follow suit another year.
