my good friend ryn has had a hard year (like so many of us). they survived an attack in the spring, struggled with new and worsening disabilities, became unable to work, caught COVID just before christmas, lost their housing stipend after leaving grad school, and had 3 car accidents in a single month.
throughout all of this, ryn has remained incredibly generous with their time, resources, and support. they lead free meditation for those without access to resources. I've never seen a mutual aid request go by without their donation, and they take incredible care of their friends and community.
in the aftermath of these car accidents, ryn has been able to repair 2/3 cars- just not their own.
their car was hit by two uninsured young Black people, and it was declared a "total loss” on new years day. rather than subject them or their families to a legal battle, ryn has opened himself up to receiving community support.
if you have enough to spare for a Black trans disabled person, please donate. anything invested into ryn and their wellbeing will go back into the universe tenfold. if you can’t, no sweat. please share, or just send warm wishes <3
COST BREAKDOWN FOR TRANSPARENCY
-$4,000 for a reliable, used car
-$400 for new plates, registration, city sticker, etc
-$825 for 1 month of rent
-$375 for 5 sessions of bodywork at sliding scale fee
anything raised beyond $5,600 will go towards their favorite dog’s dental surgery costs (which total about ~$2500)
