British independent journalist Tommy Robinson raised donations and gifted a £20,000 power wheelchair to an 8-year-old with cerebral palsy over Christmas.
Controversial British journalist Tommy Robinson showed his softer side over the Christmas holiday when he and a film crew surprised an 8-year-old suffering from cerebral palsy with an expensive power wheelchair for Christmas.
The touching video shows Tommy Robinson join the child, Daisy, as she unwraps her present, transitions to the new chair, and explores the new options made available to her from the charitable act.
Robinson raised the money on the popular crowdfunding platform GoFundMe, and revealed that the Daisy is the daughter of a soldier in the British Armed Forces.
“The daughter of one of our armed forces members needs a specially adapted wheelchair to make her life easier,” Robinson wrote, adding that “The NHS can’t fund this so it’s down to the generosity of the great British public.”
Robinson’s campaign raised £45,487, more than double the amount needed to buy the wheelchair, and pledged to put the rest to good use.
“I’m setting up a registered charitable trust that will focus on military families — like Daisy, and like Gareth Knox before her,” wrote Robinson, “In fact, Knox and Daisy’s mother have both agreed to sit as trustees on that charitable trust.”
Robinson shows this softer side after a particularly difficult year, in which he was arrested and detained for months on spurious and constantly changing charges, only to be unceremoniously freed after the British public organized near constant demonstrations in protest.

Pope Francis Prays For Coronavirus Relief in Unprecedented Empty Vatican Audience
The Pope appeared alone.
Pope Francis prayed that God would comfort Italy and the world in the midst of the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic, appearing in an unprecedented Vatican audience in Saint Peter’s Square. Papal events at the Vatican are almost always filled with pilgrims and the faithful, but the ceremony overseen by the Pope was entirely empty on account of the strict quarantine imposed on Italy as the nation reels from an unmatched death count from the disease.
Imagery of the event revealed the striking emptiness of the Vatican square, the overcast and rainy weather adding to the solemn nature of the papal event.

“May God’s blessing come down upon you as a consoling embrace,” said the Pope at the event. “Lord, bless the world. Give health to our bodies and comfort our hearts.”
The Pope encouraged prayer from the faithful for those directly involved in the response to the historic health epidemic- healthcare workers, doctors, grocery employees, police and volunteers.
The Pope chose to deliver the traditional ‘Urbi et Orbi’ address at the event, a Vatican tradition that is usually reserved for Christmas and Easter. The prayer implied the likely cancellation of Vatican Easter proceedings, with the devastation caused by the coronavirus in Italy likely precluding any major gatherings within the coming months, at least. Reports indicate that the Pope will celebrate traditional Good Friday and Easter Sunday masses, but alone, in a manner similar to Friday’s papal appearance.
Catholic Sunday Masses have been entirely cancelled in Italy, a nearly entirely unprecedented development that speaks to the gravity of the situation in the disease-stricken country. The nation had its worst day in terms of casualties on Friday, with deaths rising to 9,134, with a total national count of almost 87,000.
