A homeless burn victim who came to Reddit to share his story walked away with a bunch of new friends and generous donations from the community.
Chris Tomlinson, 28, hosted an “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit on Sunday and users were so inspired by his experience that they’ve rallied around him.
They have already donated nearly $2,000 to support Tomlinson.
The candid survivor shared the horrific details of how he was burned on more than 98 percent of his body as a baby and how he still faces obstacles.
When he was nearly 2 years old, he slipped out of a swing in his Florida backyard and ventured to the family's shed when his mom wasn’t looking.
