Waits GoFundMe

After Hastings heard the story of Kelsey Waits and her transgender child Kit getting outed in this years contentious school board election, some members of the community have come out to help and support the Waits.

In a story with CNN, Waits said her family would be moving to a safer community following the discrimination her family experiences over the last few months. 

To help out the family in their move, a GoFundMe page was created by Tom Bullington to "give the Waits family the best Christmas ever." 

"We would like to help the family get a head start on making their new house feel like a home on Christmas," the GoFundMe page reads.
