While some municipalities have punished people for helping the homeless – or in some cases threatened to – and destroyed donations to homeless shelters, it seems that in this case it is actually working out for James.
The original goal for the GoFundMe campaign was just $50,000, a goal which was shattered in less than 24 hours. The goal has now been extended to $250,000.
It seems that thousands have been encouraged and inspired by James’ honesty and integrity.
