We also have a milestone goal of curating a predetermined box for female-to-male and male-to-female, that can be sent to queer youth groups around the world, and to those who cant afford their own subscription box. This is a big goal, but we can make it happen!
Our subscription box and resource kit will be on Kickstarter in the coming month, and we invite you to join us in our journey to making this dream a reality! Follow to keep up with our updates, especially if you would like to get involved, and share this post!!
The past few days have been bananas. My piece went viral in response to the Harvey Weinstein bullshit. I have gotten THOUSANDS of request for that piece and/or that message in product form. You all clearly connected with the message. I can’t possibly stitch that many pieces (unless I become a hermit and stitch for like 10 years straight…and you know I love you but even I have my limits). I think I have done the next best thing.
I set up a RedBubble with two collections. The first has a bunch of products with the original expression on them. The other one has products without the curse word. Essentially, I have licensed my design and selected the products but I don’t do any of the printing, shipping or customer service. I get between 5% and 20% per sale. I AM NOT KEEPING THIS MONEY. I have no intention of benefitting financially from this. I will be donating it to the amazing nonprofit that I work for, Advancing Justice | Chicago. That way I can be sure every penny will go directly to supporting immigrant and refugee women and girls. I’ll provide proof.
I want you to be happy. I want you to rock the message. I want you to take a stand. I want your funds to go to an organization making change. I want to use this moment and my 1 second of almost internet fame to create change and have impact.
I’m in a pickle!! I’m unemployed, I have one more semester of school to get my associates and no way to pay for it because my dad lost his job, had to leave my home in Austin because of my abusive step mom, currently living with my mother who is ALSO unemployed. AND on top of it all my car broke down yesterday. I need to earn 400 dollars within the next three weeks and I don’t know what to do.
If anyone wants to donate to me I’d really appreciate it. I made a paypal this morning. Don’t really know how to use it, but here is a link paypal.me/MadelinePearl
Anytime anyone donates 5 dollars I will post a picture of my cat. and if you can’t donate please please please reblog.
I know I’ve been doing this a lot lately but I really need help right now.
Last year I moved in with some friends who were renting a house from a parent, and that parent decided last month that they wanted to sell the house. We found out at the end of October that we have to get out by January at the latest, but preferably December. I’ve been trying unsuccessfully to raise money to get my car fixed, and then I had to replace my computer to prepare for a convention at the end of October.
I work full time at Target and the hours vary too much to easily pick up a second job, or else I would have done that by now. I have a friend moving up to rent a place with me, and we’ve been making plans to do this for a while, but it was to move her into the house with us. Now we need to scramble to get together a deposit, first month’s rent, and a pet deposit for my cats. She’s moving to get out of a bad situation and has to keep it from her parents until the last minute, so she can’t ask them for help, either. It’s going to cost us around $2000 to get moved in, and right now I have about $500 saved up.
My family can’t afford to help me because they’re either as poor as me or retired, and I’ve already sold a lot of my stuff over the past few months. I don’t have a credit card, either. I have art prints to sell, and I’ll make another post for that tomorrow, but for now I’m just going to have to ask for donations. If you can’t spare anything, I totally understand, but a reblog would be a huge help. If you can spare a few bucks, you can send it to my PayPal at email@example.com.
Again, I’m sorry I keep having to make posts begging for money like this. I know it can get annoying to see them in your feed constantly. Thanks for taking the time to read.
My family and I are in a serious jam. Bills are piling up, our electricity is about to be cut off if we don’t pay, my account is about to be overdrawn more then 200$, and my brothers insurance decided they didn’t want to cover one of his blood pressure medications anymore. We need a lot of help and if you can, drop by my etsy to grab some prints, temp tattoos, and stickers. Any little purchase helps. Thanks!
