A crowdfunding campaign for the Baton Rouge Rouses employee who was just trying to be nice has topped $110,000. 

The GoFundMe campaign "Send Jordan from Rouses to School" was set up after a video of the young man, who invited an autistic teen to help him stock after seeing the boy’s fascination with the process, went viral. 

Jordan Taylor, 20, let the teen help him for almost a half-hour, and the teen’s family member videoed it. The video, which simply shows the teen stocking as Jordan guides and encourages him, has gone viral. 

Taylor has said he never expected any of this to happen; he was just trying to be a nice person. 

The GoFundMe was set up by the teen’s sister. To see our stories about this, click here
