Holly Heap would have celebrated her fourth birthday on Wednesday.

That’s why the family of former Ravens tight end Todd Heap is asking people to honor his daughter’s memory this week. The family has started the website HugsFromHolly.com requesting people to wear pink, to spread love and joy through random acts of kindness, and to post pictures of those acts using the hashtag #HugsFromHollyDay on Wednesday.

“Holly was known to give the best hugs, and her love for everyone and everything in life was contagious,” the website reads. “Let’s spread this joy as we scatter sunshine in Holly’s honor on her birthday.”

Current and former members of the Ravens organization have used social media to share the website, which includes a link to donate to the Baltimore Community Fund in Holly’s memory.

Holly was tragically killed on April 14 when her father accidentally struck her with his truck in the driveway of the family’s home in suburban Phoenix.
