Nice to see this kid getting what he deserves:
The Seattle Pacific University student who witnesses say tackled a campus gunman during a deadly shooting Thursday reportedly has had his wedding registry and honeymoon paid for by strangers after accounts of his heroics spread on Twitter.
As the story circulated on social media, a Twitter user reportedly shared a link to Meis’ wedding registry he set up with his fiancé.
When the registries were completed, a crowdfunding campaign to pay for the couple’s honeymoon was set up by another user who wanted to show support for Meis, BuzzFeed.com reported.
As of early Saturday, more than $11,000 had been raised for the couple.
It usually takes a while for this sort of news to disseminate widely, so I’m hoping the couple keeps raking it in over the next week.
Ah – just checked the fund page and it’s over $40,000 now. Awesome.
