When a community sees one of their own in trouble, they ban together no matter the race or gender, and they work for a positive solution.
That seems to be the case in this situation we’re a group of online users at Reddit decided to be proactive and raise money for the Chicago, torture victim.

It’s great to see Americans of all races come together for a specific cause. This shows how strong we are when we’re able to do something like this.
Reddit’s /r/UplifitingNews subreddit, which focuses on inspirational news stories from around the world, is working to raise thousands of dollars to benefit a young man with special needs who was kidnapped and tortured by a group of teenagers in Chicago.
A group of four teenagers recorded themselves live on Facebook beating, and at one point cutting with a knife, the man in a Chicago home. Police later arrested the suspects who appear in the video.
One of the Reddit community’s moderators put out a call to action late on Wednesday, saying that the fundraiser was intended to prove to the victim “that there is far more good in this world than the evil he recently endured.”
As of Thursday morning, the fundraiser, hosted on GoFundMe, had accumulated more than half of its $5,000 goal within seven hours. The subreddit has held several similar fundraisers in the past, raising money for a man who cut a hole in his truck to rescue a trapped kitten, an outdoor gym in South Africa, and a father who sold his valuable comic collection to pay the medical costs of his adopted baby.
