“I just went to TikTok and vented a little bit about giving up on humanity,” said Scott. That’s when his dad, Scott, took the matter to the social media app, TikTok.
That TikTok post received hundreds of comments, one recommending, to make a GoFundMe. Lunsford’s mom, Melissa, says her son works so hard and what happened is upsetting, but knowing there are people out there who are willing to help, means the world.
“The fact that people are just donating, it’s really, really going to make things a lot easier,” said Bailey. “Something awful happened to him, but something so much better has came out of it. I think part of that is, he’s such a good kid,” said Melissa.
The three thousand dollar goal completed, with donations from family members and complete strangers. “So, I did. That was in the evening and I woke up the next morning to the fundraiser completely filled,” said Scott.
“This is just one more thing from that GoFundMe and TikTok that has blessed us and Bailey with the situation,” said Scott. One local family donated a car to Bailey to help him out during this time.
