ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Very cool story today out of Indiana. A few weeks ago, the Esterline family was surprised to find out someone had started a fundraising campaign to help the family afford a new wheelchair-accessible van, to make life a little bit easier for their 10-year-old daughter Daisy, who has cerebral palsy.
Then, a few days ago, the family was told that an anonymous donor would match all donations up to $6,000. Hoping to make sure they reached the $6,000 threshold, Daisy’s father tweeted at Paul George from the Pacers, who had met Daisy last year at a local children’s hospital.
Sure enough, on Sunday someone pledged $10,000 to the fund. That user’s name? Paul George. No fanfare, just a few clicks.
For more on the story, here’s a video from a local television station…
