KANSAS CITY, Mo.  --  A metro woman who lost her son and father in the shootings outside the Jewish Community Center is trying to turn her great loss into something gained -- for our world.

Seven Days, a week long campaign for diversity and tolerance, launches Tuesday called "Seven Days."

The goal of "Seven Days" is to promote understanding among all among races, religion and cultures and encourage kindness.

Thousands of shirts will be sold starting Monday, the one year anniversary of the shooting, to raise money for the campaign . The shirts feature the name of the campaign along with the slogan "make a ripple, change the world."

Mindy Corporon started the movement in response to the deaths of her father, Doctor William Corporon, and son Reat Underwood.

Prosecutors also believe the gunman shot Terri LaManno outside Village Shalom that day, and her family had joined with Corporon in the project.

An interfaith workshop will be held at Leawood City Hall Tuesday night. For more information, please click on this link.
