As I stated before, the $31,000+ you all raised for Damon Fowler is now in a trust fund and will go toward his education when the time comes.
Some people (including commenters on this site and the Support Damon Facebook page) are upset by this because it means Damon can’t use the money to buy a car or other things that’ll help him transition into life away from home.
Reader Hannah set up a (separate) donation drive on Reddit to help Damon with those other things.
- This money will go directly to Damon and will be used only for buying a car. (The Fowlers are looking in the $3000-4000 range.)
- Any extra will go to rent or to basic essentials like groceries, toiletries, clothes, and other items Damon doesn’t have right now.
- I will provide visual proof — such as screencaps, receipts, and the like — that the money has been distributed to Damon and that it is being used for its stated purpose.
I have nothing to do with this drive (and I don’t know Hannah personally), but if you are compelled to do so, you can pitch in here.
