Webinar Winner: The Joseph Middlemiss Big Heart Foundation

Louise Bolduc from Concord Hospital. After participating in the latest AppealMasters webinar and post-webinar survey, Louise was selected from over 100 survey respondents to donate a sum of money to the charity or foundation of her choosing.

Louise chose to donate her winnings to, “The Joseph Middlemiss Big Heart Foundation.”

This foundation was created in memory of six-year-old Joseph Middlemiss, who lost his life unexpectedly to Cardiomyopathy on September 23, 2013.

Joey was a student at the Tyngsboro Elementary School where he had many friends and was a very happy, fun, loving person. As a talented drummer, music was a very big part of Joey’s life. He was also a big fan of Star Wars, Spider-Man, his iPad, Ninja Turtles, crab fishing at “his” cottage in Maine, and riding his dune buggy. Most of all, Joey LOVED his family. Although he was young, his positive and energetic spirit touched the hearts of so many. “’This is the best day of my life,’ words Joey added to his evening Prayers. He demonstrated a passion for living each day to the fullest, exuberating joy that reached out and touched each of our hearts.”

Josephs parents, Scott and Kate Middlemiss, have created this foundation to honor their beautiful son by continuing the kindness and love that Joey shined on everyone.

The Foundations 3 Main Objectives:

  • To expand “The Joseph Middlemiss All You Need is Love Mission,” fostering the spread and documentation of Random Acts of Kindness on local, national and international fronts.
  • To educate children on the power of kindness by supporting the efforts of schools (creating and leading motivational assemblies, providing books and related resources, buddy benches and kindness libraries), and empowering students through scholarships for music and martial arts.
  • To contribute to research for and spread awareness of childhood heart conditions while providing financial, social and emotional assistance to families impacted by these (pizza parties, brunches and patient and parent care bags on the 8th floor at Boston Children’s Hospital).
