The NFL rallied together on Wednesday to honor the memory of Holly Heap, the three-year-old daughter of retired tight end Todd Heap.

Holly was accidentally struck and killed by a truck in the driveway of the family’s Mesa, Arizona, home on April 14. Tragically, police confirmed that Todd Heap was the one behind the wheel.

It’s hard to imagine how you would even begin to cope with such a tragedy. However, Holly would have turned four on Wednesday. So Todd Heap and his family decided to honor the memory of their little girl by launching the #HugsforHolly campaign.

Here’s an excerpt from the Hugs for Holly website:

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.

Here’s how YOU can get involved on Wednesday, May 3:

1. Wear PINK in Holly’s honor

2. Make a plan to share hugs and spread love & joy through random acts of heartfelt kindness for those in your community. Smile more. Compliment somebody. Write a kind note. Share treats (or chicken nuggets). Do a free lemonade stand. Leave a bigger tip than usual. Pay for the person behind you in the drive-thru. Donate a book in Holly’s honor. Turn up the music and dance… the list is endless. Be creative!

3. Capture your family spreading joy and post your pictures using the hashtag #hugsfromhollyday

Share this! Shout it from the rooftops! Let’s spread kindness and love and make Wednesday a HOLLYday!

Teams and players from around the NFL heeded the call and made Wednesday all about honoring Holly Heap.
