In Loving Memory
“There are some who bring a light so great into the world, that even
after they are gone, the light remains.”

Genesis of The Tiffany Project
“The day Sam and I found out that had Tiffany left this Earth, I remember looking up to the Heavens and feeling a peace in my heart, trusting G-d, that her loss would turn into something good. Tiffany often said that, “Everything happens for a reason”. Her words echo in my mind and heart often, helping to ease the pain of one of the most difficult experiences any family can go through. It motivated her brother and I to create The Tiffany Project, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, in her memory.
It has been an emotion filled journey that has taken us to the depths of sorrow realizing we will not see her on this Earth again and to the heights of joy seeing the positive impact The Tiffany Project is making in the lives of others and the planet in her honor. By creating The Tiffany Project we have been given the opportunity to take what looked like a tragedy and turn it into something that we hope will make a positive and distinctive difference in our world.
Tiffany was a superlative person, who was born in Kealakekua, Hawai’i and embodied a spirit of Aloha! She planted and harvested her first organic garden at age 6, was an animal rights activist and vegan, and advocated for the awareness and prevention of human trafficking. She had an infectious laugh, was stunningly beautiful, and the best daughter, sister and friend. Most of all, she taught me what Love is.“
