Have you heard the story about the transgender student who joined a fraternity?
on Upworthy we told you about Donnie Collins, a student at
Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. When his insurance policy
turned down his request for transgender surgery, Donnie’s fraternity
brothers started a wildly successful fundraising campaign. Total
strangers pitched in, then Donnie’s health insurance company
miraculously agreed to cover him, and the fraternity raised a bunch of
money to help other young people with their surgeries too. Result!
