*REWARDS AVAILABLE FOR $30+ DONORS*
Hi, my name is Tyler (they/them) and I am a 22 year old freelance artist.
Currently, because I cannot work at all due to my disabilities it is virtually an impossibility to make a stable form of income to save for this important gender-affirming surgery (at least not for 10 years on a budget... )
I call to you for your aid in my goal to elevate my dysphoria to be comfortable when wearing things other than the classic dysphoria hoodie or swimwear or even to just go outside at all. The repercussions of my chest being the way it is is the amount of discomfort I feel all the time day to day alone and around other people. It would genuinely mean the world to me for someone to support me to finally be freed from the booba
Here's the rundown of the expenses:
Surgical fee - $7000 less a rebate of $1300 from Medicare
Anaesthetist fee – $1000 to $2000
Assistant fee - $600
Hospital stay and theatre fee -$4000 to $6000
2 post-surgical garments - $260
In total... It's something like $18,000 AUD. Thankfully, to previous donators of the past and times where I have taken commissions and saved money, the total goal will be $15,000 but half of this will be our starting goal ($7500). I know, that sounds like way too much, and yes, yes it is. I'm looking into private health insurance to see if that will help later so maybe the goal will change, who knows?
The good news is we only need 500 people to donate $30 and the goal would be complete!!!
I will be offering special top surgery edition $30 sketches to anyone who donates to this page to sweeten the deal.
I also have an idea to start creating and gift optional stickers to donators after we reach a certain threshold! (ignore this disgusting cropped thing gofundme hates my art)
❥ Every donation that goes towards this will bring me a step closer to changing my life! Please share this wherever you can!
A huge thank you to everyone in the past who has helped me get closer to my goals via ko-fi and other platforms. Those donations are still saved and are the reason we don't have to aim for the full 18k :D you are all so kind and amazing <3
