End Hate with a Surprise Gift

More Info

You never know where random Facebooking will lead you.

Today it lead me to something very troublesome, something I wanted to share, and something I hope can be life changing.

I was reading comments on a comedic video about how white people in an apartment building were refusing to let a black person enter who had forgot his keys. They didn’t believe that the black person lived in their building.  One of the comments I came across was so vile, that it stopped me in my tracks. I was intrigued and I wanted to know more about this person. So naturally, I went to their Facebook profile hoping it would have some information available to the public. What I found astonished me, and kept me scrolling through for about an hour. The profile was filled with messages of hate toward white people, talk of re-segregation, and many anti-religious remarks.

I have to be honest, what I found had me wondering if there was some way to report this person, as I was thinking that hatred this strong must be illegal.

As I kept scrolling through the profile, I noticed many posts regarding a dream to own property.

My initial thoughts were something along the lines of “good luck with that”, and then I went on with my day. Later on in the day, I kept going back to the thoughts of this woman. I realized her hate had planted the seeds of hate within myself. Then my thoughts thankfully lead me to this: “Love your enemies. Be good to those who hurt you.”

I kept thinking to myself, how can I help this person? How can I show her love? How can I show her the love that God, and humankind is able to have for her? So then I came up with this idea: give her biggest dream. Have the people she hates the most give her something she truly desires. Give her a BIG gift. Give her property.

Tonight I started a Fundly (like gofundme, but doesn’t take a percentage of the donations). I want to give this woman the gift of love by raising enough money to fund the property she has always dreamed for. Once the goal is hit, I will do everything in my power to contact her to let her know how generous the world can be.

If she will not accept the gift, or if I’m unable to deliver the money to her for any reason, I will donate the money to a predominantly African American school in the town of Charlotte, NC where she lives.

As many of you know, I don’t like being in the spotlight, and this was very hard for me to share. If you are unable or unwilling to give, please consider sharing this so that it has a good chance of becoming a reality.
