Man Got Message From Potential Liberian Scammer And Went Along With It.
Once Joel got the camera, he began sending all kinds of pictures to Dan!
Dan was able to see how hard life was in Liberia, but he also got to see how beautiful life was there, as well. That's when Dan got a great idea.
After putting in some time to see if Joel was going to scam him, Dan began to realize that Joel might just be true.
Dan decided to take all of the pictures Joel sent and turn them into a photography book. He titled the book, "By d Grace of God," and started an Indiegogo campaign for Joel.
The Dan posted a video on his channel asking other people for help.
He asked for people to purchase the book in order to spread awareness of the living conditions in Liberia, but also to help Joel and his community. The book was only $10, but they ended up selling over $13,000 in books sent to over 40 different countries!
Dan had offered to split all of the money earned with Joel!
After all the expenses, their profit was $4,000, but Dan wanted to use his portion to help the children in Joel's community. For the first time Dan sent actual money to Joel. Would he use it the right way?
You'll never believe how Joel spent the money.
Joel went to the local store and spent all of the money...on backpacks and school supplies for 100 schoolchildren! Dan could've fallen for a scam, but he went with it, and as it turns out he ended up helping a lot of people. “When you give someone a chance, sometimes they’re not who you thought they were," Dan told his YouTube viewers.
