During the COVID-19 pandemic, we've seen people across the world do some incredible things in the fight to stop the spread of the virus, and aid those working on the front lines. Captain Tom Moore, a 99-year-old (soon to be 100) war veteran is one of the incredible, awe-inspiring examples of people doing extraordinary things to fundraise.
Moore, who served as an officer in India and Burma campaigns during WWII, had the intention of raising £1,00 through fundraising site Just Giving and has since raised over £11,000 ($21,834 AUD) for healthcare workers in the UK. In the name of the countries National Health Service, Moore walked 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday on April 30.
"It [has been] beyond our wildest expectations, no words can express our gratitude to the British public for getting behind Tom," Moore's daughter Hannah Ingram-Moore told the BBC.
Now, over 59,000 people have donated to Tom's Walk - and counting.
Way to go, Captain.
