Bill Dowdle - Memphis, Allie's Parents, Go Fund Me Account

Bill Dowdle is the father of Allie Dowdle.  His daughter is making headlines because of the Go Fund Me account she recently created.  She started the Go Fund Me account after her parents cut her off financially for dating a black man named Michael.  Allie lives in Memphis, TN and has maintained a 4.0 GPA since her freshman year of high school and started the account so she would have enough money for college.


Allie explained that her parents took away her car, personal savings and phone.  If we could understand why people like Bill feel the way they do, the world would be a better place.  More importantly, if more people were as fearless as Allie, the world would be a better place.  Allie is 18-years-old and she's currently a senior in high school.

Allie received financial aid and scholarship money but still needed about $10,000 for her out-of-pocket tuition expenses.  After the first day, Allie's raised the $10,000 she requested and more.  The account recently surpassed $30,000 and the sky is the limit.  Allie's Go Fund Me account proves that we are making progress.

Bill claims that his conflict was never about race.  He says that he had a problem with Allie keeping her relationship with Michael a secret.  They say it takes a village to raise a child.  Allie's village is financially equipped to provide her with anything she needs.
