Weʼre raising £1,500 to give a disabled trans woman a chance at stability
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
A friend of mine has been living with chronic disabilities and without income of her own for over a year, hounded by debt collectors, evicted from her residence, and even denied access to trans-related health care.
She has had to severely overdraft her bank account in order to pay for food and medication. Fighting depression and difficulty meeting her basic physical and psychological needs, she has been nonetheless making momentous effort to apply and interview for jobs that don't conflict with her disabilities. During this time, she still greatly needs our help.
Our goal is to keep her alive and well during her job search by ensuring she can pay for medication and other needs, and to pay off her outstanding debts by the end of 2018.
Donations on this page go directly to her bank account. As with other fundraisers I've organized on friends' behalf, she has requested anonymity for her own safety, but I'll be posting updates about her situation as I receive them. Thank you for any contribution you can make, whether monetary or by spreading word of my friend's predicament.
