So love this story…
Jon Meis is the young college student in Seattle who last week stopped a massacre from happening on his campus. He’s the one who pepper sprayed and tackled the shooter who had already killed one person and was planning on making this a Columbine type school shooting with many many deaths…
How do you thank someone like Jon Meis. George Stephanopoulos yesterday on ABC named him the hero of the week..or something like that…but “we the people” have done even better.
When Jon’s name was released last week, someone found out he was engaged and was getting married to a gal named Kaylie later this month. So he or she shared a link to their gift registry….and guess what? Jon and Kaylie now have every single gift from their registry and then some.
So with the registry completed, someone else set up a fundraising page on GoFundMe.com to pay for their honeymoon. The idea was to raise $5000. Guess what?
They’ve now raised about $50,000.
