This foundation will honor Cameron's wish to do good in the world and help those in need. In one of his final interviews, he revealed that he wanted to be a "difference maker" and make a difference. "I’m following in the footsteps of some really strong men and women who have showed me what it means to give back; it’s the greatest way to fulfill yourself," he said. "Every time I talk to someone who shares that similar passion, we talk about how there aren’t many feelings more euphoric. Changing someone else’s life positively changes yours for the better as well."
