Some Background Information about Her
My girlfriend is a lovely woman from Mexico who loves learning language and giving me kisses. She is an amazing online English teacher and uses her money to pay for medicine, food, travel, and sometimes helping out her family. She also happens to be transgender and has been dealing with a lot of gender dysphoria and anxiety ever since she realized her body was different from all the other girls. Unfortunately, she and her family aren't able to afford the surgery that would help affirm her gender and allow her to love herself as much as I love her. She has also made videos on YouTube about different issues that affect trans women in the hopes of reaching out to young transgender people who feel alone in their struggle.

What she needs
The surgery she would be getting is called sex reassignment surgery (SRS) which is "the surgical procedure (or procedures) by which a transgender person's physical appearance and function of their existing sexual characteristics are altered to resemble that socially associated with their identified gender. "
The financial goal that we have set would cover the cost of the surgery and is based on an online consultation with one of the possible surgeons in Thailand that could perform the surgery. The rest of the costs will be covered by us from what we make teaching English. We would like to raise the money by the end of the year and we will continue to save money to go towards the surgery.
