LEAVING BEHIND A LEGACY OF CHARITY

In the last interview before his death, the "Jessie" star talked about the joy one gets from positively changing others' lives. His family and friends are honoring him by doing just that. 

The foundation recently collaborated with Cameron's "Descendants" co-star Dove Cameron to start a t-shirt campaign called Wielding Peace, which fights against gun violence.

The t-shirts sport a picture of Cameron's tattoo — a gun barrel with flowers coming out of it — and are only available in limited amounts. Some of the proceeds also went towards the Actors Fund COVID Relief.
