Earlier today we launched a story asking the Chivers to match our $50,000 donation. We linked Chive Nation to Melissa’s GoFundMe page and asked them to share the hash tag #wegotyoumelissa on Twitter.
This is the photo of Melissa surrounded by her family moments before the launch this morning. Melissa went to Starbucks so she could watch the campaign go live. What we didn’t know is that she RAK’d EVERYBODY in the Starbucks a pumpkin latte before it started. How amazing is that? Before the world reached out to Melissa, she was already paying it forward.
