Nikki Smith set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to take her 12- and 10-year-old daughters to Disney World, and even though her plea was shared more than 18,000 times on Facebook, she'd only received $18 and a lot of backlash.
“The press have made me out to be an awful person,” said Smith, who eventually deleted her page after her story made headlines.
Smith has since re-launched the GoFundMe page, which has raised about $650.
"I’m traumatized by the abuse and negativity I have received and only put this back up because a lot of people said I should,” Smith explains. “Online trolls are evil, I haven’t hurt anyone and I was only trying to fulfill my children’s dreams.”
