Our Story

Colin’s Joy Project began after the unexpected death of our son Colin, just before his 3rd birthday. How we missed his laughing eyes, blond curls, hilarious little voice—and the joy he brought to everyone in his path.

Though the grief we feel is insurmountable, the uprising of kindness we experienced in the wake of his death was comforting and moving. Family, friends, and complete strangers rallied together to lift up our family and we were inspired to honor his spirit by creating a legacy of JOY in his name. 

Colin's Joy Project was created with the intent to continue to weave joy into the lives of others as Colin did.

We've partnered with The Boston Foundation and together our goal is to create joy for children and families in our community. Through the enhancement of play spaces and funding of family-focused programming in the South Boston area, our hope is to see Colin’s smile reflected in their joyful faces…

Thank you for visiting and stay tuned for updates.
