United States comic Brad Williams (envisioned) set up a GoFundMe web page for Quaden Bayles on Thursday after the young boy's mommy shared a video clip of him sobbing and also stating he meant to pass away. The page had a goal of $10,000, but it has already surpassed $70,000!
"It's going to mean more to us than it is for you so make sure you're looking after yourself and hopefully we get to see you over the next couple of days". "This isn't just for Quaden, this is for anyone who has been bullied in their lives and told they weren't good enough", said Williams.
In the distressing footage, captured on Facebook Live, Quaden goes on to say: "I just want to stab myself in the heart..." She explained: "We just went to pick him up and saw a student patting him on the head and making fun of his height. he ran to the vehicle in hysterics because he doesn't want me to make a scene at the school".
"This is what bullying does", she says in the video, which went viral.
"So can you please educate your children, your families, your friends, because all it takes is one more instance and you wonder why kids are killing themselves", she says. In the reaction to the same video, the NRL All Stars team made a decision to invite the little boy to lead them at Saturday night's match. "I am your buddy", he said in a video. He's also going to get some free martial arts training from Chatri Sityodtong. "The parents should make them be nicer to kids with disabilities", said Quaden.
His offer of support follows other sports stars such as NRL player Latrell Mitchell coming forward to speak up for Quaden.
