I’m sure you have heard of or took part in the recent ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The challenge that raised awareness for ALS research by donating and dumping a bucket of ice water on your head.
Recently a 14-year-old autistic boy in Bay Village, OH was challenged by his fellow students and it turned out to be a disgusting prank on this poor boy. Instead of using a bucket of water they dumped a bucket filled with urine, spit and feces on the teen. I honestly could not believe my eyes when I had watched the video.
How can people be so cruel? As a mom my heart went out to this teen and his family. This incredible brave 14 year old boy decided to share his story. His community was outraged once this went public but so should everyone by this cruel bullying that took place.
GiveForward is the world’s #1 fundraising site for helping people in need. They help people come together and give support when they need it most. Since 2008, they have helped families raise over 120 million to help cover their expenses during hard times or honor the people that they care about.
Remember the horrific Boston Marathon Bombing last year? With the help of a GiveForward fundraiser the family and friends of the newylwed couple, Pat and Jess, were able to raise $900,000 for them. They both lost their legs in that bombing with this money they will not have to worry about their medical expenses as they deal with their new life with prosethetic legs.
