A Fundraiser That's Not A Drag 2021

Donation protected

Last year we raised $207,00 for 8 diverse outdoor nonprofits.

This year we want to double that and raise $500,000 for 5 nonprofits working to make the outdoors a more equitable place.

Here's how it will work.
- You DONATE now, whatever you can. $5 $25 $100 $1000 Anything helps!

- You GET TO CHALLENGE ME! - I am challenging you to donate what you can and in return you get to challenge me! Pick a music video for me to recreate in just 24 hours. Name your music video challenge in the comments on Go Fund Me when you make your donation and we’ll pick a video nomination out of the hat on Wednesday and post the finished video Thursday.  
-We see how much we can raise TOGETHER from now until Friday, December 3rd.

-Make sure to follow the link in our donation Thank You email to give us your mailing address so we can mail you our lil thank you. 

Let’s support the organizations who support diversity, equity and inclusion! Over the past year, our community has had the opportunity to get to know each of these 5 non-profits personally and see the amazing work they do to make a difference.

Here it begins! With YOU. Y’all, here’s the truth, Pattie’s community would be NOTHING without your support. You’ve followed along for the past year, and girl oh girl has it been a year, but now, it’s time to give back AND raise up the non-profit’s who have made Pattie’s journey so special the past year.

This can only happen with your help. Let’s make these organizations feel like queens.


Here are the 5 non-profit’s we’re fundraising for! All funds raised will be divided evenly and will be transferred directly from to the 501c3 accounts of these five organizations:
