Change for a Change: Top Surgery

My name is Alexander O'Brien. I am FTM, meaning that I was born female and I am transitioning to male because I have always felt that I am internally male. I am trying to save up money for surgery on my own to get my chest reconstructed to reflect a male chest but it is slow going.. I work Full Time as Lowe's and I put away all that I can but so far I only have $500 but I need will ultimately need $7,000 min (surgery cost + rent and living costs during recovery). I plan to put away all of next years tax returns as well (which will be another $1000 added to my savings), it is just difficult to do it all on my own and also pay my bills and whatnot. 

I do want to get surgery sooner rather then later for one big reason, otherwise I could wait. I want to get married. But I can't get married until I am legally male if I intend to get a marriage that is legally recognized in all 50 states and by the federal government. And to become legally male I need an "irreversible" surgery. So please, if you could, consider donating to help support my savings goal! :) I would be eternally grateful to any and all contributions to my goal.
