Get Niner Waldo Kid To SF
We found Niner Waldo! Ladies Of The Empire is giving him a FREE ticket to the Niners vs. Seattle game next season at Levi's Stadium. We need your help to fly him to SF, put him up in a nice hotel, pay for food, and anything left over will go to the kids college fund. Thanks Niner Empire! I know you will reward this kid and his bravery and help LOTE get him to Levi's Stadium. Once the schedule is released I will be coordinating with him to make this trip possible.
I have just come to learn this kid is only 15 years old, is a ward of the state, and living in a shelter. I know this sounds so crazy and just like one of those "send money to help these starving kids in some foreign country" stories. But it is VERY true and validated by his teachers and the shelter in which he resides. We are contacting his social worker to get him REAL help. He is very thankful!!
WOW the 12th man and all NFL team fans have really stepped up on this one!!! Thank you everyone!!! His trip will be fully covered byf way of flight mile donations and hotel voucher donation offers. So the ENTIRE amount raised (minus the fee's from GoFundMe) will go to his college education so keep it coming! We will set up an account/trust fund that he can have access to when he is 18.

Is there an update? I'm soooo hoping this young man is doing well. And that he gets to see a game!!!
That is truly a shame as they have known for months that we were supporting this young man's trip out here to SF to see the game against the Seahawks! I was hoping to see him on television today!! Go 49ers!!!!
Thank you for the update. Things happen for reason, whatever will be, will be. Let's just hope that this young man will do what he needs to do to show that he is worthy of all the attention, love and compassion pouring out to him. Promises in words not backed up by actions and results are promises in vain and will disappoint.
Hope to see him and our LOTE PRES Catherine Tate on the big screen. He is more than deserving of this trip. With The Niner Empire and Us Ladies of The Empire, nothing is impossible!! Thanks for stepping up Cat
That's great news, I'm sure he'll have a blast! By the way, can you let us know how he's doing in general, with school work and academics, socially, etc? We'd love to know how he's progressing...
Awesome things going on. As I told many people, I would like to tell some people around here, to check my plan site. Thank you
As a proud 12 I will help him. He is a true 49ers fan and deserves the support. Any real sports fan that goes this far, deserves it all.
We are so proud of Catherine and for her stepping up to the plate to help this young man out! I am also proud to belong to Ladies of the Empire~
As a lifelong 12 I am proud to support this kid. What an amazing job you have done Catherine! Love to see our fan bases working together again to do great things!
Bless you, Catherine! I'm in tears over this. Who says we can't get along? This kid .. WOW!
This is awesome!!! Thanks for doing this, Catherine! This is the 2nd time "this season" that we've all put the rivalry aside to help the kids - and I'm proud to be part of a fanbase that can do that!
Yahoo sports just featured this story so watch this kick into high gear now! :-)
@Kyle Sundgren thats generous of you, We Seahawk fans are doing 12 & 48 for the Superbowl we won.
I just wanted to address terri's comment King Five news ran the story and I am sure they vetted their sources, and if he has a state social worker then there has been some papers filed and he is "in" the system to what degree is none of our business he is a minor and has privacy rights. If you feel that you have information that is pertinent you should contact Cat and I am sure that she will look into it. But as for me my donation stands and send this kid to a Niners game and then to college!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for doing this. This kid deserves a chance at life. As a mom I want to hug him and encourage him. Go Ronnie!
"This is God's doing, and it's marvelous in our eyes." - Psalm 118:23
Catherine, thank you so much for doing this. The response has been beautiful. There is so much good in humanity and I love how all of this started with one simple photo! I'm a journalist & also a youth advocate and I hope to follow Ronnie's journey... I think we all want to see him (and so many others) succeed. #MoreThanFootball #NinerEmpire
I love seeing the Faithful & the 12's working together!
@ Terri Turner - not sure what your intent is speaking words of such malice. I personally have met with Ronnie's school counselor and his principal, and had confirmation of Ronnie's situation. I've spent time with Ronnie also, and found him to be a very sensible young man who's super grateful of the love and generosity shown him. He isn't even out of his current situation, already he's speaking for other homeless children like him and wants to use this opportunity to bring awareness to them so they too can get proper help. It's unfortunate that instead of showing humility and appreciating the kindness and goodwill of fans across all teams and around the country and the world, you have to speak words of wickedness.
Cat, WTG YOU ROCK , AN ANGEL SENT TO HELP RONNIE..I AM NOT A LOTE (altho id like to join, I THINK WHAT YOU DID FOR THIS CHILD IS AMAZING & WISH MORE PEOPLE WERE LIKE YOU. I AM A 12 & STAND BY YOU ALSO.
