“Caring and kind people are the best people, and Paul’s that person for me.” — Kamden, age 8
Suddenly, Kamden’s wheelchair started to betray him. He’d be rolling along and the balance would shift, pitching him to the ground. Falling out of his chair became a routine concern.
Paul witnessed many of these moments, and he wanted to do something to help his best friend. So he started a GoFundMe.
With his mom’s permission and assistance, Paul set up the GoFundMe with a goal of $3,900—enough for a new fitted wheelchair for Kamden.
They shared the campaign and the story of Paul and Kamden’s friendship, and the community quickly rallied behind them. In just two weeks, they met their fundraising goal.
Thanks to his best friend Paul and GoFundMe donors, Kamden now has a brand-new fitted wheelchair.
He and Paul are finally back to racing down the block worry-free and playing their favorite games, and they hope their success inspires other people to make a difference.
“If two young kids could do it, anybody could do it.” — Paul, age 8
