Woman loses job while son is on life support. Meanwhile, her GoFundMe asks only for food and gas to get back and forth from hospital.

Ok, I can hardly contain my rage while posting this. I am crying while doing my best to spread the word. At this writing, there is only $160 raised so far. Come on people, please show your love.

Recommended Read/Listen: "A Mother and Son Talk About School Shootings"

I choose to embed the facebook post because the comments add valuable personal information to the story. I choose to share it this way to demonstrate the value of facebook and social media for civic engagement as well as non-profit media and audio storytelling.

An interesting note: I was introduced to Connie Shultz through facebook's algorithm. I was introduced to the word "algorithm" by a fellow music lover, whose partner is a retired music teacher.
 If you don't have time to read the comments, please just give a listen to the audio.
