#MakeLove — Tell Them Chrissy Sent You: London victim inspires others to help homeless

Published on June 27, 2017

In the last two years of her life, Christine Archibald dedicated herself to helping those struggling with addiction and homelessness.

Following her death in Saturday’s London Bridge terrorist attack, the 30-year-old Canadian’s legacy has been inspiring others to do the same.

Archibald was one of seven people killed when a van plowed into pedestrians on London Bridge and three attackers went on a stabbing rampage in nearby Borough Market.

In a statement on Sunday, the Archibald family asked people to honor her memory by helping make their communities “a better place.”

“We grieve the loss of our beautiful, loving daughter and sister,” the family said. “She would have had no understanding of the callous cruelty that caused her death. “Volunteer your time and labor or donate to a homeless shelter. Tell them Chrissy sent you.”

Her family’s wishes have inspired the hashtag #chrissysentme, which people have used to show how they are helping others in her name.
