Plane Crash Goes Viral, Pilot Needs Help!

Hello kind people of the world! I am starting this GoFundMe page on behalf of my absolute gem of a grandfather, Pilot Joseph Keenan. Last year my PopPop crashed his 1956 T-28 Trojan plane into a farm field when his engine failed after take off. The accident was very scary and he understands he is blessed to walk away alive, but still struggles with intense back pain and a reluctant realization that he may never fly again. Reminiscing on the accident and realizing the crash video is at 955k views, my PopPop remarked "boy, if I had a dollar for every view...".  After asking him what he would do with that money, he explained his wish of restoring his Vintage Navy War Plane. He also announced he would excitedly donate half of the profit to St. Anthony's soup kitchen in San Francisco CA, where he has volunteered for over 30 years.  As we head into 2021, I want more than anything to help him with this wish. Thank you for your generosity and please live life flying high, you never know when you're going to crash.
