For the past 20 years, this foster father has cared for terminally ill children and given them a loving home when no one else would. When a reader came across his story in the LA Times, she set up a campaign to thank and help Mohammed. In just two months, 7,574 people donated nearly $400,000 to support his ongoing dedication and love for the children he fosters as if they are his own.
Katie teaches at a low-income school where most children don’t get the chance to learn how to ride a bicycle because they can’t afford one. She wanted every student at her school to have a bike to call their own, so she set up a GoFundMe to make it a reality. In 3 months, Katie raised over $80,000 to fulfill her dream.
Ibra was born with cerebral palsy and has had to use a wheelchair his whole life. The problem: his current chair was breaking down and his family couldn’t afford to replace it. That’s when his teacher Matt Johnson stepped in to help. Matt set up a GoFundMe, and watched the donations pour in. Friends, fellow students, and teachers all pitched in — raising over $32,000 so Ibra could get the new power wheelchair he needed.
