Cameron Boyce’s family launch The Cameron Boyce Foundation

Following the sudden and tragic passing of Disney Star Cameron Boyce at just 20 years old, earlier this month, his family have announced the launch of The Cameron Boyce Foundation.

The foundation has been launched to honour Cameron’s legacy. The foundation aims to “provide young people artistic and creative outlets as alternatives to violence and negativity and uses resources and philanthropy to positive change in the world.”

Cameron’s dad Victor took to social media to announce the news about the foundation and answered questions about it.

Money donated to the foundation will be distributed to charities that Cameron was passionate about. Throughout his life, Descendants Star Cameron was seen as someone who wanted to make the world a better place and did this by supporting various charities.

 

“We all go, “What you leave should be bigger than you.”Cameron Boyce,Thirst project 2018

“There’s a long line of difference makers in my family. I’m following in the footsteps of some really strong men and women who have shown me what it means to give back; it’s the greatest way to fulfil yourself, Cameron said in his final interview with Haute Living in May.

Before he passed he was working on  a social media campaign which will now be launched posthumously to help fight against gun violence.

“I’ve named the concept Wielding Peace. It will be a collection of images that feature people from all walks of life (celebrities, victims of gun violence, common supporters) wielding ‘guns.’ The catch is, the ‘guns’ that we’re using as props will be items that signify unity and peace,”

“Household items such as musical instruments, cameras, food, sporting equipment, beauty products, articles of clothing… anything that might inspire someone creatively as well as make a strong statement with the sentiment that we need to choose a different weapon,” he added in a statement provided by his reps to People Magazine.

You can donate to the Cameron Boyce Foundation here.
