Chopping Off My Hair To Fund a Book
$21,500 of $20,000 goal
I am doing this campaign to bring awareness and support to underrepresented gender and sexual identities. This is a subject I hold very near and dear to my heart. Through making the ABC’s of LGBT series, I have found that there are so many people that feel that their identity isn’t understood. This is something I have dealt with personally as well.
I have been wanting to cut my hair for a very long time but was insecure to really go for it and embrace my gender identity with my expression. In this campaign I will finally take the leap if we raise 5,000 dollars. If we raise 15,000 dollars I’ll do it within a week, and if you guys are CRAZY and raise 20,000 Grace will dye her hair ANY color you guys vote on!! (ALSO, DID I MENTION THE BOOK WILL BE AVALIABLE FOR FREE (as a pdf or ebook) TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE.)
The money will be used to help turn the ABC’s of LGBT into a book!! Funds will go towards getting professional and credited LGBTQIA+ people to edit to make sure the information published is correct and possibly fund a small tour so I can come and meet a bunch of you! If we rause enough I would also like to send free copies of the book to highschool GSA's across the country. I am so excited to be taking on this great project, and any of the money that is left over will be given to Gender Spectrum nonprofit focused on creating safe and unclusive spaces for all genders.
I sent out an important email to donators! I need some extra info from some of you in order to get you your perk! So far I have 928 responses, so I'm still waiting on a couple hundred of you.
Not all your emails were valid either, I got at least 20 sent back to me from google for not being a real address.
If there was some mistake and you did donate but haven't received an email from me yet, please email me your CORRECT email address at: email@example.com
"5 days, 1092 people, and $20,0025! That's insane!!"
Upon reading that....I proceeded to scream! LOL! HOLY SHIZ WE DID IT! I am so thankful for anyone who supported the campaign in any capacity!
$20,000 is plenty to fund this book, complete a small tour, as well as donate to Gender Spectrum. Because of this I've decided to shut the campaign down at 12:00am CST tonight. This way anyone who wanted to donate at the last minute and receive one of the perks still available ( book credit, haiku, etc) will still have a chance.
I feel as if Im actually bursting at the seams with gratitude though. Thank you, thank you, also... thank you <3
TIME TO GET WRITING!
WE DID IT, I AM SO FRICKING THANKFUL. There may or may not be tears on my keyboard as I type this. That was SO FAST! Now I have to cut my hair.... I pumped!
5,000 is what we needed to make the book a reality, now 15,00 is the next goal if we want to make a tour happen.
Someone in the comments of the video suggested visiting High School GSA's during the tour. I really like that idea, what do you all think? :D
Honestly, if I can't have the free right to want God in school why the heck should lgbt be advocated?!? Wtf ive Senn so many other things inn this site, more heart wrenching, worth a humans time.. not that I'm against lgbt whatever bit gtfo a vet can't raise $200 to help for sheltere but a book to"come out" love yourself... Guess that kinda love Is taught.. I'm truly sickened
I have a gofundme for my friend erin right now. Her and her parents have a lot of differences because she is pansexual and for more private reasons and they are refusing to pay for her to go to college so i would greatly appreciate it if ou could go to the page and donate anything even 25 cents would be fine. Thank you!
I wish I could donate. Can't wait for the book!
I would LOVE to be able to share all the amazing work you do with my school's QSA in NW Washington!! Also I am so so happy for you! ily :)
Please make more skype dates available!!!
I think the GSA trips are a great idea and if you are planning on going to Chicago, I'm sure the GSA at my school would love to have you! I mean you are a pretty big deal and stuff, plus my school is pretty big so I'm sure you would have a great audience if you wanted
If you insist on chopping off ALL your hair, then don't wear a wig - that's cheating.
I am so happy for your book and for the money you have raised for the Gender Spectrum. I wish that I could help out, but sadly, I cannot..
Donated! Excited to see where this is going to go! Twittah: @heybriabea
Hey Ash! I know your goal is to hit high school GSAs in big cities but i just wanted to throw my school out there. I go to Georgia Southern University and our GSA would love to have you!
Hey Ashley! I'm with the Highland High School GSA in SLC, Utah, and it would mean the world if you came to one of our meetings on your your tour!
Ashley!! I'm so happy for you and everything this means. If the tour happens, I'd love to have a multi school GSA meeting at my school in SF!!
Our GSA would be so happy to have you if you are coming up to Vancouver BC!
