What money is really for: Quaden Bayles’ family shows the world how to be a human

Recently, I posted about a short boy who found people with big hearts.

This boy’s family are truly enlightened people. In response to Yarraka Bayles’
video of the effects of bullying on her son, a crowdfunding program has raised $474,000.

Their decision: this wonderful family will give all the money to two charities.

Understandably, the charities are for helping kids with dwarfism (Quaden’s medical problem), and with assisting Aboriginal young people.

There is still terrible discrimination against Aborigines in Australia. Their life expectancy is far shorter, they suffer from discriminatory government programs, and a lot of stigma. One of Australia’s most talented football heroes retired a few years ago because he could no longer cope with all the hate and disdain thrown at him.

We need to learn from them instead. Thank you, Bayles family.
