WATCH: Minnesota Boy Gets Emotional After Seeing Color for the First Time
Jonathan Jones is severely color blind and has never seen color before. Jonathan's principal is also severely color blind. So when Jonathan's class was talking about the topic of color blindness, his principal brought in some glasses for Jonathan to try.
This is so sweet! Unfortunately, Jonathan didn't get to keep the glasses, but after that, his family put together a GoFundMe to raise the $350 needed for Jonathan's special glasses.
Bring Me the News reports that as of Friday morning, the GoFundMe more than doubled the goal. As of writing this, the GoFundMe is over $2,000!
Jonathan's parents wrote on the GoFundMe page: "We will use these funds to purchase his own pair and donate any additional funds to the Enchroma Foundation who purchase color blind glasses for those who can't afford them."
