The NFL is a brotherhood.
When tragedy strikes one, all are affected.
That is what happened this past March when former Baltimore Ravens and Arizona Cardinals tight end Todd Heap lost his daughter Holly in a tragic accident.
Today would have been Holly's fourth birthday and the entire NFL is rallying around #HugsFromHollyDay, including the Chargers Pro Bowler.
Hugs from Holly Day is a way to honor and celebrate the life of Holly Heap, while hoping to brighten the world in the process:
"Holly was known to give the best hugs, and her love for everyone and everything in life was contagious," a statement from the family website read. "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:
Wear PINK in Holly's honor.
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!
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!"
