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!
