Tiki Finlayson explains the mission of 1n3, "To bring worldwide awareness that one in three have been impacted by drunk driving and how many one in 3 really look life."
Family, friends, and those impacted by drunk driving, are hoping to make change in the world.
A year after Kevin Yates was killed by a drunk driver, he's being remembered through an organization called 1n3.
"We want the world to get the message that we've got to be more responsible driving. We're not after people who drink, we're just saying if you do stay home or find a ride home," says Finlayson, Kevin Yates' Mom.
As those mourn the loss of loved ones, they also celebrate their lives.
In Kevin's case, his heart still beats.
"It was so cool to hug him that first time and put that stethoscope to my ear and hear my son's heart beat. It was an event I could never ever put into words.. What that felt like," Finlayson says when talking about meeting the man that received her son's heart.
"I went on the heart transplant list in May," says Melvin Ellis, Yates' Heart Recipient.
Melvin Ellis is alive today, thanks to Kevin "Sunshine " Yates.
He wears a Batman t-shirt proudly in his honor.
"To my family he's truly our hero," explains Ellis.
Volunteers with 1n3 hope to change the statistic that one in every 3 people are affected by drunk driving.
"Not getting behind the wheel and driving, you know to call a cab, call somebody to come pick them up that's been the most beneficial thing to for me," explains Caitlin Maddux, who lost her father to a drunk driver.
As balloon fly to the heavens, those remember "we are one in 3."
Melvin Ellis will never take a day for granted, but looks forward to the day he look Kevin in the eyes.
"I'm just going to tell him Sunshine we have made it together and I thank you," says Ellis.
