A lot has happened for Tessica Brown in the last two weeks, and it looks like she’s ready to give back to charity! Following her Gorilla Glue incident, Tessica received a free removal procedure from Dr. Michael Obeng and there was even a GoFundMe page made to help her out.
The GoFundMe page has received more than $21K in donations, and Tessica’s manager has confirmed that she will be donating most of that money to the RESTORE Foundation, according to TMZ. The non-profit organization provides reconstructive surgery for people around the world.
According to her manager, Tessica wants to donate the money to ensure that people who need these types of reconstructive procedures can have access to them, even if they cannot afford them. Tessica was also inspired by Dr. Obeng, who founded RESTORE in 2008.
“RESTORE is an acronym that stands for Restoring Emotional Stability Through Outstanding Reconstructive Efforts,” the organization’s site reads.
Not only did Dr. Obeng perform Tessica’s glue removal procedure for free, he actually created his own solvent in order to get the Gorilla Glue to dissolve out of her hair.
