Hey community so I'm raising money for myself as needed as a black transwoman neededing to just get by day by day with limited options even as a leader.

I'm going on a trip to New Orleans July 19th for a church retreat with my church family Judah fellowship with limited funds. It would be nice to have a few bucks in my pocket so I can enjoy myself as my everyday consist of doing for others❤

I'd appreciate your generosity for the trip and continued generosity as getting by is tough for us transwomen of color especially those who give all they have to give to make others happy.

If you'd like more info about me and the work I do feel free to visit my Facebook page at Ciora Thomas
