Holden's College Fund

Hi friends, I would really appreciate a moment of your time to either send words of encouragement, share this story or help out. I have a former student who is trans. His parents kicked him out of his house 6 months before he graduated high school because his identity did not fit into their narrow religious views. So, they gave up and moved away to open a coffee shop. Yet, Holden is still such an amazingly talented and positive kiddo. Holden had a hard time getting back and forth to school, so he missed several days of his Spring semester, so he had to make up a few classes in summer school. Holden reached out for help and he finished high school yesterday YAY! Holden was also accepted to college to study Urban music in Chicago (he plays guitar)! Despite major setbacks, Holden is doing great things to make sure his life isn't destroyed by his parents selfish choices. We had a small graduation party last night and Dalton gave Holden a custom made guitar for this monumental achievement. I started this go fund me to help Holden pay for travel, tuition, books and anything else he may need to go to school. I am hoping we can get enough support from the community to make sure he can start out his journey without financial duress. So I am hoping you will do one of the above things to help get Holden's story out and to help get him set to go to college. Anything you can do is so greatly appreciated!
