Cameron Boyce's Mom Tearfully Says His 'Death Is Not in Vain' Ahead of Late Star's 21st Birthday

"Cameron was a light," the actress told PEOPLE. "Every year on his birthday he did something to give back, and this year, The Cameron Boyce Foundation is honoring his legacy by continuing that tradition on what would have been his 21st birthday. I could not be more proud to support this cause for my friend, whom I miss every day. I got my tattoo in his honor, and as such The Cameron Boyce Foundation has asked to feature the design on these special limited edition T-shirts."

Proceeds from the campaign will support The Cameron Boyce Foundation’s efforts to end gun violence and cure epilepsy.  A portion of the profits will also be donated to The Actors Fund COVID Relief, which supports everyone in entertainment who have been affected by COVID-19.

While the campaign lasts for one month, the foundation plans to uphold Cameron’s legacy by annually giving back and helping another organization in need each year on his birthday.

"In lieu of gifts, each year on his birthday Cameron would do something charitable to give back to the community. Philanthropy and giving were second nature to him," a spokesperson for The Cameron Boyce Foundation told PEOPLE. "While he appreciated nice things, it was always important to him to use his resources to help people who were in need, or to advocate for the many causes that were dear to his heart."
