The family of Nathan O’Brien has established a children’s foundation in his honour nearly four months after the five-year-old went missing along with his grandparents from their southwest Calgary home.
Nathan and his grandparents, Alvin and Kathy Liknes disappeared June 30th and their bodies have yet to be located.
Now, parents Jen and Rod O’Brien said a generous anonymous donor has allowed them to launch The Nathan O’Brien Children’s Foundation.
“In honour of our beloved child we are committed to maintaining a positive difference in the world, just like Nathan did,” read a statement from Nathan’s parents. “The Nathan O’Brien Children’s Foundation gives us a purpose again, lifting ourselves up and charities of choice.”
Nathan was honoured at a private memorial last month.
It’s expected the foundation will begin granting money to charities in the Calgary area immediately.
