Zoe Spears age 23 was a vibrant and brilliant young transgender woman with so much to live for. She reminded me of when I was young and struggling to find the way. Today I honor and praise her for being who she was and not allowing anyone to tell her about how to be her authentic self. Today I am asking for donations to support giving this young woman who was taken away too soon a funeral that signifies "Dignity in Death". But I need your help to make this happen through what ever you can give. The donations are needed now as Zoe was brutally murdered on June 13th in the town of Fairmont Heights. My name is Earline Budd and I am the Advocate who will be responsible in assuring that final arrangements are made. Zoe's mother Ms. Heather Graber is not able to put her child away, and resides in Indiana where Zoe was born. She said to me that she thanks any and everyone who offers support during this difficult time. Also, based on the distance where she live she has allowed me to be the liaison for the family who will need to have financial support to also come to DC for the Celebration of life. Please give as you can today, no donation is too small. Just as a reminder Zoe was also a best friend to Ashanti Carmon who was also murdered in Fairmont Heights on March 30, 2019. My heart hurts in having to do yet another service, but my life is dedicated to giving and caring and for this reason I will complete yet one more service. Thank you in advance.
