Thank You Charles Ramsey
$15,106 of $10,000 goal
Thank you for doing what you did... thank you for the fantastic interviews. You made us smile. You made our day.
We did it!
About This Project
Charles Ramsey helped rescue a few girls who were kidnapped nearly a decade ago in Ohio. We've seen his interviews... let's send that man some cash for drinks, food, a huge party...whatever he decides to do with it.
The initial $10,000 goal was an arbitrary number that I expect we'll easily pass.
I, Robby Russell, of Portland, Oregon will see to it that every cent donated (after gofundme takes their cut) is delivered to him in the form of a HUGE CHECK from the INTERNET.
In an effort to be transparent about this... we want to get a photo of him with said check to show that your money made it to him. If this relies on me flying there (thanks to everyone who has offered to donate their accrued airline miles...) so be it. If you're a Cleveland news reporter that wants to help me make this happen--please get in touch with me.
Also--Help the Victims
If you want to help contribute funds to the victims, I recommend the Cleveland Courage Fund.
This will likely be one of the final updates on this project. Earlier today, I deposited the money into Mr. Ramsey's bank account and am now waiting on him to confirm it made it to him.
I want to take a moment to thank each of you who wanted to say Thank You to Charles.

Today, I got a confirmation that all the donations were transferred to my account. I visited my bank this evening to get a cashier's check so that I can deposit in Charle's account tomorrow (another bank). Here is a photo of said cashier's check with the full amount (after GoFundMe/WePay took their fair share).
Here is a video from Charles saying thanks to you all.
Thank you very much for doing this! He deserved it! and he made me laugh too...
Just playing. Robby Good job bro!
Wow you all got scammed! This Robby guy just made $15k off you guys. Its all over the news. LOL
THANK YOU, ROBBY. YOU'RE ONE BEAUTIFUL MAN.
I am so glad the young ladies were saved ,but Charles Ramsey did not act alone. Plse dont forget about the other youngman who was there he is as much a hero as Charles and for some reason hes not getting any press . Charles plse do what right by him he deserves it as much as you do . God Bless you botth
There is some believeable media out there that Angel may have helped more than Charles is admitting. It that is true I hope Charles does the right thing and shares this money with him. Certainly Amanda Berry knows the truth of who got her out of that house. If he is being dishonest this money will likely self distruct...that would be a real shame! But our intentions here are pure and I am still proud to be a part of it!
Merry Davis, you made the mistake of admitting that you actually listen to Fox News. That speaks volumes about your mindset. In case you missed it, Fox News is a forum for bible-thumping Republicans devoid of actual thought. My suggestion to you is that you watch Real Time with Bill Maher every Friday night. That might expand your mind. PS: I have NO doubt that Charles was the real hero here. Your imagined hero ran away when the police arrived. Fact check yourself before posting on this forum. Rosemary
or just go to fox news and put in search charles ramsey i did not make the video fox news did.
Merry Davis, or whatever your real name really is, your "story" does not exist. When I clicked on your link it appears to be non-existent. You are a fake and a fraud and have no place in this legitimate forum. Get permanently lost.
http://rpx.me/18wn the story is now being questiond im sorry maybe folks should study first
I am Parents Against Predators and we have a quick question about this account for Charles Ramsey. Why not set this up in his name under his bank account?
Robby, thanks for creating this forum to help all of us show our appreciation. You started and ended this campaign at the appropriate time. Well done.
Robby, Thank you for arranging this. All I want now is somehow to see or hear an interview with you and Charles about all this. A recorded Skype call maybe? This not a skeptical thing, as I was one of the first donators. I just would love to hear directly and un-censored from Charles what he thinks about all this. Charles, seriously, you are a brave man that could have looked the other way, as sadly, so many others would have. Take the money, if anything to buy a sweet computer and sign up for YouTube and start a channel by just telling a story each week. I think you'll hit the ground running with about 605 subscribers!
Angel ran away...if it were up to Angel the girls might still be locked up in that house. Very excited to see Charles get this money...so good of you to do this. To me every donor is part of "the solution!" Hope there is video of you giving the check!!
To Charles, if you are reading this, I just saw your interview broadcast on CNN. When you said youd like to kick his head down a soccer field, my initial reaction was I wish you would have done it and I would have enjoyed helping you do it. But then reason sets in and we both know this would have been a mistake. Despite how much we all hate this monster, we must let the justice system resolve this case. You have taken the higher road and let justice run its course, leaving it in the hands of the police. That makes you a better person. As a woman I would like to see him suffer the same brutality he caused his victims. Lets hope jail time will cause his untimely demise. I feel for the victims immensely. I pray they can recover their lives, in time. Especially the eldest who was severely brutalized and beaten. WHAT A PIG. I also feel for his daughter from his first marriage who has severed all ties to her dad with the new-found information that he is a demon. So many victims. You are a hero.
Very nice for the Internet community to donate to Charles Ramsey. Why don't you donate some to Angel who assisted Charles too? Leftover money should be donated to Amanda Berry, Gina DeJESUS, and Michelle Knight's families. Just a though.
Ah Robby, you are the man. Thanks for putting this together and keeping it real!
Hi there everyone, please show your gratitude to this man for helping save the lives of these women. Also, you may donate to the victims Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight, and Amanda Berry and her daughter here: http://www.clevelandfoundation.org/about/cleveland-courage-fund/
There seems to be a lot of comments about the other man that assited. Who CARES if he is ILLEGAL? Seriously? For those of you posting horrible comments about how he "backed off" he couldn't speak english so he left...What kind of people are you? A Hero has no NATIONALITY, NO COLOR, NO LANGUAGE. Charles Ramsey and his actions that day deserve a medal...However, for those of you not living in this area, Charles Ramsey called 911 TWICE. Not ONCE. His Initial 911 call was aired here...You can here total chaos in the background and he says "Hey bro...I'm on such and such street and these dudes are kicking this door in and some woman is screaming..I'm Amanda Berry...I don't know who this Amanda Berry is but ya'll need to get here quick cause I don't know what they are trying to do. FACT. The real Hero's are those women for surviving such a horrible crime. That man has done an interview, THE SAME DAY it happened and he DOES speak English. He wants NO limelite...He wants NOTHING. He said all he cared about was that the girls were now safe. For those that made the stupid comments, Shame on you! Just goes to show what kind of HERO you would be
