83 Year-old Gives $25,000 After Watching Sheriff's Screening of Anti-Gay Bullying Film

Inspired - General

Photo of young man by Sun StarWhen the Broward Sheriff's Office held a town hall-style screening of the anti-gay bullying documentary film 'Bullied: a Student, a School and a Case that Made History,' they hoped to change a few minds and attitudes.

They got all that, and a check, to boot. 83-year-old Leonard Solomon stood up and announced he was giving $25,000 to fight hate crimes and bullying.

“The movie made me realize the size of the bullying problem,” the retired Fort Lauderdale resident explained. “There was a lot that struck me about it -– the lawsuit, how lax the school administration was. I knew I wanted to get involved.”
