Episode 13: Patriotic Kenny Foundation
Deemed "TikToks Grandpa," Patriotic Kenny has started a movement of kindness. Just shortly after the COVID lockdowns, Kenny's scooter broke down, his only way to get out and socialize with people in his community. With the help of his neighbor Amanda, they recorded a video sharing Kenny's situation and requesting help from people on TikTok to raise money for a new scooter on GoFundMe. Their goal was to raise one thousand dollars, but to their surprise, they ended up raising over $100,000 and counting. With that money, Kenny was able to get himself a new scooter, pay off medical bills, and utilize all additional funds to provide mobility scooters to veterans in need.
