The name behind the Five Off Foundation
In 2011, my 13-year old godson, Ian Buckley, passed away from a seizure disorder relating to severe Autism. In spite of his challenging condition, which left him with very limited speech, he still managed to communicate with his heart. He loved music, the ocean, “In and Out” fries, and especially The Peanuts Gang.
One thing Ian didn’t like was the number five. He disliked it so much that his teacher covered it on the clock, the coat hooks and almost anywhere it was visible in his classroom. If he caught view of a rogue number five, he would say “Five Off” until it was covered.
In memory of this very loving boy, and for all the families suffering with environmentally linked disorders, we hope our “Five Off” might help in the fight toward healing and happiness.
