Daisy Esterline is an 11-year old girl/Pacers fan with Cerebral Palsy. For the past year her family has been trying to get people to donate money to Daisy’s GoFundMe page so they can get a wheelchair van. Last week and anonymous donor said they would match every dollar donated up to $6k. Then on Sunday, Paul George donated $10k to the account and said “keep fighting daisy I am with you!”
On Monday, the anonymous user donated his $6k and the goal of $12k was matched. But with all of the news of the Daisy’s story, thanks again to Paul George, many others have been donating in the past 24 hours and the account now has almost 19k worth of donations.
If you have been following Paul George over the years then you know that donating is nothing new to the Pacers star.
Last year he bought and donated every #24 Paul George jersey to his high school in Palmdale.
And in 2013, he donated a Kia Sorento he won with the Most Improved Player award to the Hawthorne Community Center.
