AUSTIN (KXAN) — More than one year after his death, the community is coming together to honor Colton Turner, by helping other children in Central Texas.

Tuesday night, the “Love, Colton Foundation” accepted a large donation of toys to give to underprivileged children in foster care.

Chris Blinston, a tattoo artist and contestant from Spike TV’s Ink Master, used his prize money from the show for this cause.

“Helping out the Love Colton Foundation and the Angelheart Kids Foundation and giving money for Colton’s Christmas, I can help a lot of kids out,” he said.

Colton Turner was found dead in a shallow grave in Southeast Austin last year. His mother Meagan Work and her boyfriend are charged in connection with his death.

In September, KXAN reported that the Love, Colton Foundation had raised $15,000 since it began a year ago.
