This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of GiveForward. Information was provided by GiveForward but all opinions are 100% mine.
You may have read this article about an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge prank being played on a 14 year old autistic boy in Bay Village, Ohio. What happened is unimaginable. I am helping share this fundraiser on Give It Forward help to prove to this boy that there is more love in this world than hate. This terrible prank played on anyone especially a special needs child is disgusting, appalling and heartbreaking all at the same time. I cannot imagine the pain this has caused this boy and his family.
So when GiveForward came across the article they did what they do best and started a fundraiser. This fundraiser was started for this boy to show him love, rather than hate, and to teach him that he is a hero for knowing that was wrong and being able to come out and talk about what happened. You can help by either donating or even just by sharing.
However, GiveForward knows that not all people know what to do when they see these things in the news. 98% of the time we stand by idly and watch life go by. When we see a tragedy or injustice on the news, we say "what a shame" and then we flip the channel and proceed to do NOTHING about it, as we expect someone else will step up and help.
GiveForward wants to change that. They want people to know there is an outlet.
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.

We have the power to change the world, I truly believe that one person can make a difference. Can you imagine the difference hundreds and thousands of people could make?
