Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has stepped up in a big way by donating thousands of dollars to help William Choa 6-year-old boy who lost his loved ones in a Texas mass shooting earlier this month.
Cho, along with his family, had visited the Allen outlet mall on May 6 when a gunman opened fire and tragically killed his mother, father, and brother. Despite suffering injuries in the horrific rampage, Cho is now recovering well after spending time in the ICU.
In response to the tragedy, friends of the Cho family set up a GoFundMe page with the hopes that it would provide the little boy with enough money to help him in the wake of the tragedy once he heals up. It was then that Murray raced in to open up his checkbook for the cause, donating $15,000 to the fundraiser.
The 25-year-old quarterback, who has close ties to the area having attended high school in Allen, also took to Twitter to express his willingness to help more victims. The news of Murray’s donation has since gone viral and helped raise even more funds for the family.
The goal has been greatly surpassed
As of now, the GoFundMe page, which initially had a goal of raising $50,000, has surpassed $1.7 million. In response, the page’s organizers expressed their deep gratitude and sincere appreciation for the outpouring of love and prayers from all around the country.
“Both Kyu and Cindy’s family will use these funds to help William continue the legacy of his parents,” the page’s organizers wrote. Murray’s donation has been hailed by many as a remarkable act of kindness, and his generosity has set an example for others to follow.
“Kyler Murray is not just a talented football player, but a compassionate human being with a big heart,” said one Twitter user. “His donation is proof that he cares about his community and the people in it.”
In the face of tragedy, Murray’s kindness and generosity have shone a light on the power of compassion and the importance of supporting those in need.
