Heart Friends Near & Far,
As some of you may know, I am a single mama to a beautiful future ancestor named Panda. Panda is my heart that beats on the outside. They are a big reason why I have managed to stay alive as long as I have, & their 10th birthday is a big deal because everything about Panda's life is a femmiracle! Panda is always teaching me about the perks of the panda femme lifestyle, staying soft, the importance of playing with friends, & holding the hope of falling in love. & OMG THEY ARE STILL ALIVE. WE ARE STILL ALIVE!
In the past year we have survived (barely, it feels) not having a place to call ours for several months // moving three times in 6 months, Panda & I being bullied & harassed by one teacher, one principal, one school counselor, & multiple students in three different schools. We are painfully aware that these acts of violence & displacement are because of our positionality as indigenous queer femmes with chronic depression & anxiety & not enough money or access to resources. In spite of it all, we are still here, breathing, loving, dreaming.
For their 10th birthday I need your help in paying their May tuition for their school (where they finally feel safe, thank SPG) & gifting them access to therapy! We saw a wonderful therapist for years, but had to stop last year due to lack of access to public assistance & financial resources. This has been something Panda has asking for ever since. In addition, I am asking for help in accessing mental health resources for myself because this is an important way I've been able to support & love Panda & facilitate all the intergenerational healing we partake of.
All donations can be made in person if you live near me, or through my paypal, yellow button located to the right! If possible, choose the Friends & Family option, rather than Goods & Services so there's not a paypal fee taken out. Thank you all, from the future, because we trust how much you have already loved us! Please boost, share with networks, send woo, love, prayers, & all the gifts from the femmiverse!
