The family of Quaden Bayles, a boy with dwarfism has decided to donate all the money that was raised for him to visit Disneyland, to charity instead, reported NDTV.
Quaden, 9, recently went viral after his mother posted a video of him crying out of distress and wanting to die because of being bullied, a video that caught the attention of millions
Brad Williams a US comedian with the same type of dwarfism decided to step up and help the kid, which prompted him to open a GoFundMe page.
Brad ended up successfully raising close to US$475,000 in an immense show of support from people around the world.
Although the funds were meant to send Bayles and his mum to Disneyland, his aunt told Australia's NITV News that the money would be used for charities instead.
"What kid wouldn't want to go to Disneyland, especially if you have lived Quaden's life. To escape to anywhere that is fun that doesn't remind him of his day to day challenges," she added.
"But my sister said 'you know what, let's get back to the real issue'. This little fella has been bullied. How many suicides, black or white, in our society have happened due to bullying."
"We want the money to go to community organisations that really need it. They know what the money should be spent on, so as much as we want to go to Disneyland, I think our community would benefit far more from that."
Australian actor Hugh Jackman and NBA player Enes Kanter were among the hundreds of thousands posting support for Bayles.
