ON JULY 10TH 2012 THE PRESTON FAMILY LOST A BIG PART
THEIR DAUGHTER AND SISTER, JOVI SLOAN PRESTON.
AT JUST 16 WEEKS OLD JOVI PASSED AWAY FROM SUDDEN
INFANT DEATH SYNDROME.
Molly Preston :10
It was something so bad that happened to us, but we
wanted to bring something good out of something so
AS HARD AS THE LAST TWO
YEARS HAVE BEEN FOR THE FAMILY...THEY
ARE HONORING HER TODAY, ON HER SECOND BIRTHDAY.
I have gift card to put towards your coffe today,
in honor of her.
MOLLY PRESTON FIRST CAME UP WITH THE IDEA TO PAY IT
FORWARD LAST YEAR FOR JOVI'S FIRST BIRTHDAY.
Last year I made cookies and treats for the first
responders and peopl who were really involved in her
BUT THIS YEAR SHE WANTED TO DO SOMETHING BIGGER.
MOLLY WANTED TO SHARE HER DAUGHTERS STORY BY ASKING
PEOPLE FOR A SMALL FAVOR.
We wanted to ask people to do random acts of kindness
in honor of her and in honor of her life to just try
and show the world that good that she brought us.
OVER 800 PEOPLE AND COUNTING.
MANY WHO ARE COMPLETE STRANGERS TO THE PRESTON'S.
HAVE TAKEN TO SOCIAL MEDIA TO SHARE THEIR GOOD DEEDS
WHICH IS ANYTHING FROM HANDING OUT GIFTCARDS TO STRANGERS.
TO DONATING TO THE INLAND NORTHWEST SIDS FOUNDATION
IN HER HONOR.
MOST IMPORANTLY THOUGH.
MOLLY AND HER HUSBAND WANTED TO SHOW THEIR OTHER TWO
ESPECIALLY THEIR FOUR YEAR OLD SON CASH...THAT JOVI'S
SHORT LIFE, SHOULD INSPIRE HIM TO LIVE HIS.
We wanted him to see that you could have something
good out of this.
AND AT LEAST FOR TODAY.
IT'S BEEN REALLY GOOD.
Life does go on and while it's still hard, you can
still have life, and be happy, and still have good,
despite the bad.
