Virginia Mclaurin - White House

Virginia Mclaurin became an internet sensation recently when she danced with the Obamas at the White House during Black History Month. The more details people learned about the 106-year-old lady, the more they loved her and wanted to do something nice for her.

Ms. Mclaurin volunteers as a foster grandmother 40 hours every week, but though she is still spry, the day may come where she will not be able to climb the difficult flight of stairs to her apartment in Washington D.C. where she has lived since 1939.

That’s why a YouCaring crowdfunding campaign was set up for the centenarian by her family and neighbors upon the request of social media followers asking how they can help the super senior.

$22,000 has already been raised toward the $50,000 goal to pay for a first-floor home close to her church and a cell phone so she can continue leading an active role in the community.
