Fundraiser to send bullied boy Quaden Boyles to Disneyland exceeds all expectations

A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money to send bullied Australian boy Quaden Bayles to Disneyland. 

This comes after a heartbreaking video of Bayles, nine, crying in his mother's car went viral.

Bayles was born with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism, and has been bullied all his life. 

His mother Yarraka witnessed kids taunting and bullying him at his Brisbane school on Wednesday by patting his head and mocking his height.

"Give me a knife, I want to kill myself," says the tearful Bayles in the video.

As he is crying, Yarraka says she wants everyone to see how bad bullying is.

"This is the impact bullying has on a nine-year-old kid that just wants to go to school, get an education and have fun. But every single fricken day, something happens, another episode, another bullying, another taunt."

Since the release of the video, numerous celebrities have spoken out in support of the boy.

American comedian Brad Williams, who also lives with dwarfism, set up a GoFundMe page called 'Let's send a wonderful kid to Disneyland!"'

The fundraiser had a goal of $10,000 and has exceeded it, reaching a whopping $364,176.

"This isn't just for Quaden, this is for anyone who has been bullied in their lives and told they weren't good enough," Williams description of the fundraiser reads.

The page so far has had 16,400 donors and 195,000 followers. 

Other celebrities also posted their support for the boy. Wolverine star Hugh Jackman posted a video on Twitter with a special message for Bayles. 

"No matter what, you've got a friend in me. Quaden, you are stronger than you know, mate," Jackman said. "Everyone, let's just please be kind to each other. Bullying is not OK, period."

An Australian rugby team, the Indigenous All Stars, also invited Boyle to march the team onto the pitch this Saturday.
