After a photo was shared of two girls using Wi-fi at a nearby Taco Bell to do schoolwork went viral. More than 100,000 was raised for the family.
The photo was posted to Instagram and since posted sparked an online fundraiser for the family as well a conversation highlighting the “digital divide” for low-income students.
