Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Comedian sends 9-year-old with dwarfism to Disneyland”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A stand-up comedian has raised more than $200,000 (£100,000) to send a bullied nine-year-old Australian boy with dwarfism to Disneyland after he broke hearts around the world. 

Brad Williams, who has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and the Tonight Show, set up a GoFundMe page for Quaden Bayles on Thursday after the boy's mother shared a video of him crying and saying 'give me a rope, I want to kill myself'. 

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.' 

As of Friday, more than 9,000 people have already donated to the page and raised a total of nearly 240,000 Australian dollars (£104,000 or US $159,000). 

Quaden has received an outpouring of support from the public and celebrities including Hugh Jackman, Mark Hamill, Eric Trump and British Paralympic swimmer Ellie Simmonds.
