Hello, My name is Ezra and I am a trans youth living in Hamilton, ON.
In the past month, multiple disastrous events have taken place and I am overwhelmed and struggling to keep up with the accumulation of expenses. I was in a car accident, my landlord is trying to renovict me, I was assaulted by my roommate, and I was wrongfully arrested and assaulted by the Hamilton Police Force. The past month has been a string of disasters one after another any any help would be greatly appreciated right now. I am exhausted, stressed the hell out and unable to go back to work as the work season for my job has ended (I was working as a concrete finisher before all of this) and truthfully I do not have the capacity to go to work right now at all. My body hurts, my mind hurts, and I need to be able to rest so that I can put the energy that I do have towards healing. This will also help me have capacity to fight the upcoming legal battles that myself and my friends will be going through as we try to create a more loving world. I also received good news this month. My top surgery was confirmed for March 3rd 2022, and will only cost me 3,000! I am not the kind of person to normally ask for help, but desperate times call for desperate measures and I am banking on the hope that I have served my community well enough to be able to ask for support in this time of need. Any donations I receive will be going towards my living expenses, the cost of my surgery, and to help me be able to better serve my community. Thank you for taking the time to read and share this, and I hope that everybody is able to spend some time with the people that they love as we move into the new year.
