While the Schultz family are not folks that I know personally, they are close friends of some business colleagues of mine, and thus, I'm helping to spread the word about their plight. Daily updates are available on the GoFundMe page, and on Ari's Facebook. In just the past few minutes, I've seen donations jump from $85K-$87K with a goal of $500K for the campaign, which is an incredible thing.
The reality is that Ari will have a lifetime of battles ahead of him, and his family is prepared to help him in the fight. Right now, he's looking forward to returning home in "1-3 months," but what he doesn't know is that there's no home to return to. It's always hard to ask folks to contribute money to those whom they don't know, but this is one of those occasions where chipping in can really make a difference.
