Shaq Gifts Kansas City Teenager After Mother Starts GoFundMe

Shaq is such a class act!

Former NBA player Shaquille O’Neal has made a big difference in the life of a young boy who wears a size 23 shoe. The generous Shaq blessed the teenager after his family placed a GoFundMe account to help get him custom-made shoes.

A Kansas City teenager, Jor’el Bolden, was ecstatic when he got a surprise phone call after his mother, Tamika Neal, set up a fundraiser to raise money to outfit his size 23 feet. The phone call was a FaceTime call from Shaq after he was made aware of Bolden’s plight.
Having big feet causes issues when most brands do not make footwear that large for the average consumer. His mother stated she had to get specially made shoes that wouldn’t hurt his feet. That’s why the GoFundMe campaign was created.

After word got out about the campaign and Bolden’s situation, Neal stated that Entertainment Tonight contacted her to inform her to tell her son that “someone special wants to talk to you,” Neal said.
Bolden chopped it up with Shaq, and less than a week later, three big boxes were delivered to the teenager.

“They are a big help for now,” Neal said. “but he will need a bigger shoe eventually, and that’s what this money is for.”
