Rich Specht and his wife, Samantha, are the co-founders of the ReesSpecht Life Foundation. The foundation formed in the wake of the drowning death of their only son, Richard Edwin-Ehmer (Rees) Specht, at 22 months old. The acts of kindness that his family received after Rees’ passing inspired them to “pay it forward” with the worldwide distribution of over 750,000 ReesSpecht Life “pay it forward” cards and counting.
The foundation also provides school assemblies called “Cultivate Kindness” and “ReesSpecht the Water,” which have reached over 350,000 students nationwide in the past six years.
Rich’s never-ending mission is to make the world a kinder and safer place, one Rees’ piece at a time. In addition to his school programs, Rich is also the published author of the award-winning children’s book “A Little Rees Specht Cultivates Kindness” and the upcoming “A Little Rees Specht Stops a Bully.”
He currently resides in Sound Beach, New York with his wife, Samantha, daughters, Abigail, Lorilei, Melina and his angel above, Rees.
