When a neighbor’s expensive wheelchair was stolen, Ryan Czech wanted to help — but how much of a difference can an eighth-grader make? It turns out, he was able to buy her a new chair within a single day.

Ryan’s mother helped him set up a GoFundMe page to raise the money and in just 24 hours, his page had raised more than enough — a total of $2,763 before the campaign was closed.

“We met our goal and Jerylyn will get her new orange wheelchair/stroller,” Czech posted on the fundraising page. “We can’t wait. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.”
