Remember that 9-year-old Australian boy Quaden Bayles, who was being bullied so badly over his dwarfism that he wanted to kill himself? As you probably recall, there was a GoFundMe set up to send him and his family to Disneyland and it ended up raising almost $475,000. Well, the family has decided not to go to Disney after all. Instead, they're donating all the money to charity. Organizations that will benefit include Dwarfism Awareness Australia, STOMP Out Bullying, and Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation.
