Tyra’s husband, Steve Damm, passed away in 2009 after being diagnosed with glioblastoma. For the first few years after his passing, Tyra and her family were unsure of how to honor Steve, specifically on his birthday. In 2011, around the time when Steve would have turned 43, Tyra decided she wanted to honor her husband’s memory with Acts of Kindness. She along with family, friends, and even strangers completed 43, if not more, acts of kindness. Each year they continue this tradition with what has been come to be known as “Damm Acts of Kindness”, and complete the number of acts that would relate to his age that year.
