Over $140,000 Raised For Children Using WiFi Outside Taco Bell


I love when the community comes together. A couple days ago, a photo (above) went viral for two children working on their homework outside of a Taco Bell, using their WiFi. The photo prompted stories of the family of the children being homeless which started a larger conversation about the tech/digital divide in Silicon Valley. Well a GoFundMe was started for the family and raised over $140,000 and their elementary school gave them hotspots so the kids could work from home. 2020 and the coronavirus has really tested us but the most beautiful thing to come from all of this is people helping and acknowledging each others hardships
