Support for Zahir, the NYC Subway Stranger ☔️☀️

THE STORY
Last week I happened to witness a beautiful New York moment: A man helping many strangers jump across a massive puddle in the subway station. I posted a video of this to my Instagram here.
⁣⁣⁣
Since then, this video has received over 50,000 likes. In the original post I asked anyone with info on this man's identity to DM me, and multiple people reached out to⁣⁣⁣⁣ let me know that he often sits at the Bedford L station in NYC. 

On June 25 I found him in the station and took the above photo. He told me his name is Zahir, and he'd heard there was a video of him online. He said he'd be honored for all who were touched by this video to raise funds to help support him.

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT
This fundraiser is to thank Zahir for his kindness and sunshine on a rainy day. I've set the goal at $5000, which means that if 10% of the people  who liked this video give $1, we will meet our goal.

Please donate what you can, then take some love and pass it on.

DELIVERY OF FUNDS

I took down Zahir's contact information so I will take all funds raised and donate directly to him in cash. Will provide photo/video evidence when I do!

NOTE: This fundraiser began as a Facebook fundraiser, which has now closed. Funds have been consolidated on this fundraiser, so please share this page instead!
