In Ferguson, Missouri, a woman by the name of Natalie Dubose, had a bakery called Natalie’s Cakes and More vandalized. The bakery was vandalized during the protests that have recently been occurring in Ferguson. The bakery needs repairs to fix the broken windows and replace the broken baking supplies. Kind strangers are helping the woman get back on her feet. A GoFundMe page has been opened benefiting the bakery owner. Over $250,000 have been raised by strangers, not just in the United States, but worldwide. The outpour of generosity of strangers has been amazing, especially because the goal was just $20,000.
Amid what is occurring in the town of Ferguson, it is great to hear stories like this. This certainly made Ray Lane pretty happy. It is wonderful knowing, we humans can still believe in humanity. Strangers all over the country are supporting this woman, who had a dream to have her bakery store. Now, with this donated money that dream will be achieved. This store was built with hope and dreams, that were shattered one day, but now that bakery will be improved. There are other stores that were affected during the protests that are not receiving the same type of support. While, this woman was fortunate enough to get support from strangers, it would be great if everyone got the same support. It takes the media to speak about it, to get attention to one person’s need.
