This is Reagan.

Purple Monkey Project was established as a loving memorial in honor of Reagan – aimed at keeping her sweet spirit alive by doing good in our community.

“Rey Rey”, as she was known,

was a ray of sunshine who lit up every room – she was fun-loving, energetic, sassy, sweet, and spunky. She loved dancing, the musical ‘Hamilton’, her family, and her purple monkey.

Reagan tragically lost her life in an accident in May of 2021, and the world stopped spinning for those who loved her – it was unfathomable that someone so wonderful was no longer here. But even in the midst of their grief, Reagan’s loved ones were overwhelmed by love as their community came together to celebrate her life and to support them in the days, weeks, and months that followed.

That love and support helped form the idea for Purple Monkey Project, so named for Reagan’s favorite stuffed animal. Purple Monkey Project’s goal is to honor Reagan’s beautiful spirit by being a “Rey” of light in the world – supporting local youth and youth-centered charities and “paying it forward” by promoting random acts of kindness, all in the name of our Reagan.
