Vet Gets a New Scooter

79 year old Navy Veteran becomes a Tik Tok star.

His scooter broke down and granddaughter went to Tik Tok and people were so generous.

As of Sunday, donors had contributed more than $110,000 to the GoFundMe account “Patriotic Kenny Needs a Ride” – far surpassing the original goal of $5,000.

The videos have garnered the channel — @PatrioticKenny — more than a million followers and tens of millions of views.
