BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - The pain of losing Maksym son is something Mary Sugorovksiy lives with every day.
Three-year old Maksym was walking with his family along ring road in Delaware park on May 30th, 2015, when he was hit by a car and killed.
It's mission is to promote kindness as a guiding principle of humanity.
The foundation donates adaptive bicycles to children with special needs and also works with local students to bring kindness to school culture.
"This tragedy has found a way of making happiness and our sorrow coexist with one another," Sugorovksiy said.
Buffalo based company, 26 Shirts, sells different themed shirts ever two weeks and for every shirt sold, a donation is made to a local family or organization.
This week it created the Wild Rumpus shirt, which is a buffalo-themed takeoff of the children's book, Where The Wild Things Are. They cost $24.95.
As much as eight dollars per t-shirt is donated to Maksym's Giving Tree Foundation.
"To be able to use the spirit of their son and how giving and loving he was and to actually try to purpose that into good works in the community that is kind of similar to what we do," Del Reid, 26 Shirts founder.
