Oliver wanted to propose to his girlfriend, Alexandra, but he didn't have $15,000 for the engagement ring so he decided to start a GoFundMe page asking people to chip in.
You won’t be surprised to find out that while this campaign is trending, having been shared 14-thousand times so far, he’s only raised $609 of that $15,000 goal, but it’s all a little confusing, because in an update to the fundraising page, Oliver writes that they are engaged and posts a photo of a big ring on a very happy looking woman’s finger. He also writes “Unconventional love is free, weddings are not.”
So maybe he’s hoping to fundraise for the wedding now and not the engagement ring? He’s still pushing for the campaign to go viral, but we think he might have a hard time raising the rest of the $14,400 he’s hoping for.
