Hello FAM!!

 My sis Ofelia and I are starting a small fundraiser to help 8 of our dear Senegalese artist friends we had the honor of sharing space and dancing with at L’Ecole de Sables in Toubab Dialaw, who have been deeply affected by the COVID-19 situation. Their work at the moment has been suspended as musicians, dancers/performers, dance and music educators, a dance company director, and a hairdresser. They do not have the resources or means to do work on the internet or offer classes online for income. Our goal is to collectively raise $300USD for each artist and their family, which will help them to buy food and basic necessities for the next 3 months
We have both donated what we can, but we need your help to reach this goal amount to be able to give some aid to each of them. If you can spare or offer anything at all to help, we and they would appreciate it so much! No amount is too small :) 

We will send the money to the artists through World Remit (, a secure and quick service for the artists to access the funding abroad.

If you want to purchase a S.C.A.R.S. Project shirt($25), I will donate 100% of the proceeds during this time to this fundraiser. It will be mailed at the end of the month when the quarantine is lifted. Relaxed (beige) and fitted (white) styles, S-XL..write “Scars shirt” with your $25+ donation on the gofundme page and email me your address: [email redacted]

We are deeply grateful for your help and support!
