This week's Feel Good Friday story comes from Pomona!
For most people, every birthday is a milestone but for young Latina's celebrating their 15th birthday it's not only a right of passage but also a huge moment.
It is a stepping stone into womanhood, but the price to have one can be pretty costly.
Kayla's special day was approaching, but she did not want to put the pressure on her mother due to her mother's cancer returning. Kayla's family friend, Natalia García, took it upon herself to ask Twitter for help.
Natalia tweeted, “I have a friend whose cancer recently came back & her daughter doesn’t want to put the financial burden of a quinceañera on her family, so I want to try & find one for her”. The response started out as just a few retweets, and then started to double.
To her surprise it reached an astounding 10k retweets! Kayla was beside herself when Natalia informed her about how many people responded to take part in making a young girl's dream come true and have her very own quinceañera.
Aside from having a wave of people willing to help provide a dress for Kayla, Natalia also created a GoFundMe page so people can help the family with any of their needs. The account has raised over $1,800 for Kayla and her mother.
“I think we often forget how many good people are on this planet, no one expected such a huge response. "It's just human nature. I think we often forget how many good people are on this planet. For every bad person you may encounter, I guarantee there’s at least two more people who lead a life of love and positivity. It’s just beautiful seeing all kinds of people from all different places come together for one common cause.”
