Quaden Bayles‘ family is doing something wonderful with the funds raised to support the young Australian boy after footage surfaced of him being bullied at school for his dwarfism.
Over $470,000 was donated to the family after the video went viral of Quaden crying after a bullying attack, which gained celebrity and media attention.
However, instead of accepting the money as a kind gesture to take Quaden and the family to Disneyland, his family revealed what they’re doing with the money instead.
“We want the money to go to community organisations that really need it. As much as we want to go to Disneyland, I think our community would far off benefit from that,” his aunt, Mundanara Bayles, told NITV.
They’ll be giving to two charities: Dwarfism Awareness Australia, and the Balunu Healing Foundation.
The family revealed they were in discussions with comedian Brad Williams, who started the GoFundMe and stated that “any excess money” from the Disneyland trip would be donated to anti-bullying and anti-abuse charities.
Quaden recently got the opportunity to do something really cool with the help of some famous friends. Find out what he did!
