Shout outs to our brotha Cros One for starting a Go Fund Me for Zulu Rema.
Check out what Cros has to say:
A few days ago I woke up to a video sent from my sister that was posted on BBCThree Facebook page:
The video was so touching and just reading a lot of the comments asking if there was ways for people to donate were abundant and knowing that I have spearheaded a successful one before I knew I had to make a move.
I tagged a few of my friends and one comment lead to the next and next thing you know I’m speaking with the kid in the video Zulu Rema! I asked if he was interested in letting me set up a GoFundMe project because I have done them before and was a success. That paired with so many people hitting him up asking ways to help we decided the best way to go about it was to launch this campaign. The past few days we have been communicating via translator. We have become friends. He is an interesting person the more I learn about him the greater respect I have been gaining for him as a person.
I did some research to find out that prosthetic legs can cost anywhere from $20,000-$30,000 for mid level one’s and up to $50,000 for top quality one’s. Made the goal at $25,000 this may change as another part to this is a funded trip to a International Bboy Event of his choice which is part of his dream that we as a community can make happen.
We are shooting at raising funds for the next month.
This would mean a lot to make something like this happen for someone as special as Zulu Rema just the short time I’ve been able to message with him he has been extremely greatful just for even being brought to this point. And if we can get him some new equipment and ultimately to an event would make his dreams come true!
Please help and let us hit our goal!
