The Bridgeport family raised over $540,000 in donations on GoFundMe, and they called for an end to bullying.

The child suffered third-degree burns to his face and legs in April after his family said he was burned from gasoline lit on fire.

Multiple kids were seen playing with gasoline and lighting objects without supervision on Louisiana Avenue, a police report said.
