Quaden Bayles' Family Turns Down Crowd-Funded Trip to Disney - Find Out Where the Money Is Going!

Quaden Bayles‘ family is doing something wonderful with the funds raised to support the young Australian boy after footage surfaced of him being bullied at school for his dwarfism.

Over $470,000 was donated to the family after the video went viral of Quaden crying after a bullying attack, which gained celebrity and media attention.

However, instead of accepting the money as a kind gesture to take Quaden and the family to Disneyland, his family revealed what they’re doing with the money instead.

“We want the money to go to community organisations that really need it. As much as we want to go to Disneyland, I think our community would far off benefit from that,” his aunt, Mundanara Bayles, told NITV.

They’ll be giving to two charities: Dwarfism Awareness Australia, and the Balunu Healing Foundation.

The family revealed they were in discussions with comedian Brad Williams, who started the GoFundMe and stated that “any excess money” from the Disneyland trip would be donated to anti-bullying and anti-abuse charities.

Quaden recently got the opportunity to do something really cool with the help of some famous friends. Find out what he did!

The nine-year-old boy was given the opportunity to run the field before the NRL match between the Indigenous All-Stars and the New Zealand Maori Kiwis All-Stars on Saturday (February 22) at Cbus Super Stadium in Gold Coast, Australia.

Quaden‘s mother posted a video this week that she filmed after picking him up at school. In the video, Quaden is crying because of the bullying he suffered that day and he said at one point, “Give me a knife, I want to kill myself.”

A GoFundMe page was set up by comedian Brad Williams to send Quaden and his mom to Disneyland and it has raised over $450,000 in just days. The money that remains after the trip is planned will go to charities that are fighting bullying.
