American stand-up comedian and actor, Brad Williams has raised almost $200,000 to send the nine-year-old boy who was bullied over his dwarfism, to Disneyland.

Mr. Williams, who also has dwarfism, wrote: ‘I’m setting up this GoFundMe to let Quaden know that bullying will not be tolerated, and that he is a wonderful human being who deserves joy.
‘I want to fly Quaden and his mother to America, get them a nice hotel, and bring them to Disneyland.
‘This isn’t just for Quaden, this is for anyone who has been bullied in their lives and told they weren’t good enough.
‘Let’s show Quaden and others that there is good in the world and they are worthy of it.’
As of Friday,the GoFundMe page already had 8,700 donors and almost $200,000.
The comedian also revealed that if they make more than enough donation, the excess would be given to anti-bullying charities.
