I came across this video on facebook of Kim Jones and her son Keaton.  Keaton is being bullied at school.  This video really touched my heart.  I decided to do this GoFund Me to help with this childs future.  I know that money may not be the answer for this problem that we are facing in our communities with bullying.  One of my biggest fears as a parent is that my children will be bullied in school.   I know its a big task to tackle but it starts inside of our walls and the values that we teach our children.  This is just one case of thousands out there.  How many of our children stay in silence out of fear for their safety or for the fear of being further unaccepted. Over 3.2 million kids are bullied annually. 160,000 kids on a daily basis skip school out of fear from being bullied.  They just want to be accepted and to be able to learn in a safe enviroment.   Im so glad Kim posted this video of her son.  It shows how bullying can really impact a child.  The video that she posted really touched my heart and felt compelled to help.  This is best way that I knew how.

Good Afternoon everyone, I've been working diligently on this today. I know things have taken an unexpected turn here with this story but the cause is still the same. This was about Bullying, specifically in this case, Keaton. Im working on a couple of things but will not move forward without approval from everyone. I think we can use this for some good. But again it will be the decision of everyone. Here are my thoughts.

Keaton College Fund $25,000
-I have an attorney looking into this for me
There were 2 recent suicides of kids that were bullied.
I feel we can donate to this as well.
With the balance, there is a program called Rachels Challenge that I've been in contact with. They go to schools and teach kids about the story of Rachel. Its a really awesome program and not only teaches kids about being kind to one another it puts it into action. For those that no longer want to be involved with this fund you can request a refund at the link below. Stay tuned for further updates. Thank you.

As many of you know I paused the donations as well as the comments. As I sit back and read these comments and watched the video again I feel I have to make this update. THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE MOM!! However passing judgement on her before you know her is a form of bullying. Condemnation before evaluation is the ultimate form of ignorance. I can't even say for sure that any of whats being said is true. I don't know the family personally and never claimed to have known them. This is about a kid who's been bullied and not just one kid, Keaton, there are many unspoken cases about kids being bullied. We have to be the voice for the voiceless. In the video I saw a kid crying not just for himself but for others. To me thats a kid with a heart of gold and deserves praise. Im hoping that we can turn the money into something good whether it be for private school or college fund. Im in touch with GFM on how to proceed at this point. Thank you every one that donated.
