Ezra was a 2-year old boy who needed a bone marrow donor which could save his life. No one listed in the donor registries was a match.  There are thousands of swabs containing DNA to be tested lying around labs, but are not being tested for lack of funds.  (It costs  $54 each)

The Maccabeats, a Jewish acappella group, put a Chanukah video on YouTube to raise money for processing the DNA swabs.  They raised $80,000.

News report: 

The video itself:

I have not been able to find out whatever happened to Ezra, or whether a match was ever found.
