Welshman starts fundraising campaign for crying German girl

On the net, numerous British people made fun of the crying German girl at the European Championship game. Many comments went below the belt. Now a Welshman has set an example with a fundraising campaign.

While the German national team in Wembley was approaching the end of the European Championship, a German fan girl cried bitter tears in the stands. This emotional scene was captured by numerous cameras. And shortly afterwards the pictures landed on the net. On Twitter, the photos seemed to split England in two: one showed pity for the little girl. But others had nothing but malice and malicious glee. Numerous insulting comments caused astonishment among Twitter users. Now a man wants to set an example: “We want to show that not everyone in Great Britain is terrible.” * reports.

Welsh businessman starts fundraising campaign for German girl

Stan Collymore, a former Three Lions international, shared some of the hurtful posts on his Twitter channel. A Twitter post even shows the child being insulted as a “Nazi”. With this post, Stan Collymore shows his incomprehension for the bad comments and receives massive support from Twitter users. Gary Lineker, football icon from England, is also stunned by the insults against the girl: “Absolutely disgusting, abominable xenophobia,” he writes.

But the story seems to be taking a positive turn. Because many Britons are ashamed of the behavior of their compatriots. A businessman from Wales “had enough of it” and quickly started a fundraising campaign. “I saw the game, it was a good game. But I felt the negative atmosphere – you could hear the boos and all that, but actually I didn’t think about the match afterwards, ”Joel Hughes said in an interview with the BBC.

But the hatred on the net continued to occupy Joe Hughes. “There is a very noisy minority whitewashing the good in Britain and they are ruining our standing and our relationship with our friends and partners in Europe,” he said. He wanted to set an example with his fundraising campaign.

Fundraising campaign is making waves

The goal of the fundraiser was initially £ 500. But this framework was blown up in a flash. In the meantime, more than 25,000 pounds have been collected (as of July 3rd, 2021), which corresponds to around 29,000 euros. Joel Hughes was overwhelmed by the support. He wanted to pay the money back to the girl’s family as soon as possible. So far, however, he has not been able to establish contact. If that doesn’t work, he wants to donate the money to a charity. Either way, something good has emerged from history. * is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
