Crowdfunding campaign for Olympics 'hero' Feyisa Lilesa of Ethiopia almost reached the target $150,000 - August 26, 2016

When Ethiopian runner Feyisa Lilesa raised his arms and closed his fists to form a cross as he reached the finish line of the Olympics marathon in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday, he didn't just broadcast his own solidarity with the Oromo protests in Ethiopia. 

Lilesa turned a global spotlight on the plight of the Oromo people, winning himself many admirers for doing so. Now some of those admirers want to help, and a crowdfunding effort for Lilesa has raised more than $149,000 in just four days.
