My living expenses are taken care of for a good while — which means it’s time for me to refocus on saving up for surgery. My RLT will be complete in August, and the sooner I can get surgery after that, the better.
To that end, I would like to kick off a Help-Kiri-Get-Surgery fundraising drive!
My goal is to raise $15,000 — enough to cover surgery fees, travel expenses to Thailand, etc. I know that’s a super-ambitious goal, but I think it’s possible — if every one of my followers donated just $5 a month, I’d reach that goal even before my RLT ended. In addition to my donation buttons/links, I’m making a little T-shirt store with trans/queer-themed stuff, as well as a store for my little crafts and things; all proceeds from these will go straight into my surgery fund. I’ll also be keeping a running total on my donation page and posting it here periodically, so y’all can see how close we are to the goal. :D
For now, you can help in one of the following ways:
- One-time donation (any amount) — Please drop a message in my ask box if you’d like a particular donation of yours to go to something other than my surgery fund. All such asks will be kept private.
- Monthly subscription — Varying amounts selectable. Like I said, if every single one of my followers did just the $5/month, I’d have my surgery funded in plenty of time! [Edit: the variable subscription amount is broken at the moment, but $5/month is still selectable.]
- Spread the word! Even if you can’t donate, please let people know of my need, and ask them to help me out!
My deepest gratitude to all those who help, in whatever way you do. <3
