Last November, a British woman began sharing her charitable effort on TikTok and now TikTok has come to her rescue. Carly Burd took to the platform in tears to explain that the garden where she grows food for the needy was sabotaged and destroyed. Someone poured salt all over it and effectively killed the crop.
She’s been taking her harvest and giving it to those in need and now this sets her back. Now Burd's "A Meal on Me with Love" fundraiser has been flooded with donations by TikTokers along with support and advice since the sabotage. Burd’s initial goal for help to rebuild was $4-thousand, but it has gone over $185-thousand!
The gardener thanked everyone, saying "I'm absolutely overwhelmed by everyone's comments and everything," she said. "I really do appreciate it — thank you." She also gave an update on the garden; she was able to dig up a lot of the salt and plans to cover it with topsoil to neutralize it.
