So many fans, costars and celebrities have been inspired by Cameron Boyce. Before his sad passing, the late Descendants actor was really passionate about giving back, helping others and using his platform for good. And he was also involved in numerous charities. Now, Black-ish star Marcus Scribner has opened up about how Cameron’s activism has made him want to make a difference of his own.
“It definitely inspires me to want to get out there and do things,” he told Tigerbeat. “The passing of Cameron Boyce is extremely sad for me, hurt me very deeply… he was out there making positive change, fighting for clean water for countries who didn’t have access. There are so many young people out there doing positive things. I definitely love being a part of that.”
The 19-year-old actor recently teamed up with Frito-Lay and Feed the Children to launch an initiative supplementing up to two million meals for struggling families.
As fans know, Cameron tragically passed away on July 6, 2019, after suffering a seizure in his sleep. But his legacy continues to live on because the Disney Channel star’s family has started a foundation in his honor. It’s called The Cameron Boyce Foundation, and according to it’s website, it “provides young people artistic and creative outlets as alternatives to violence and negativity and uses resources and philanthropy for positive change in the world.”
Cameron was also involved in the non-profit organization, Thirst Project, before his death. Thirst Project raises awareness about the global water crisis. Cameron raised over $30,000 for the charity last year.
“What you leave should be bigger than you,” he said after receiving an award for his amazing charity work. “We need to use what we have, and to make the world a better place for other people. Other people. People who need us. I hope that you guys really think about tonight, and leave something that is bigger than yourselves.”
RIP Cameron, you definitely will never be forgotten.
