Emergency medical bills! Between Oct. 2018-Jul. 2019, this Fundly raised $80,000 toward Miss Major's basic needs. Following her recent stroke, we hope to raise $120,000 more to cover her medical care for one year!

Update #3

To all of Major's gurls + her beloved community:

Thank you so much for all your donations and hard work pushing out the health care campaign for Major! Over the past month we raised just over 40k, which means we raced past our goal of 30k in 30 days! This will help to cover Major’s home health care needs for ~3 months!

Major finally returned to the Oasis on Monday and although she's not feeling 100% yet, she wants all y'all to know she is healing, and at home with Beck and Moose, and will reach out personally when she can.

As a result of the BIG love you've all shown, she can continue speech therapy at home on Thursday. All the monthly sustainers - we see + appreciate you!

Again, even if you can't put money toward the cause, you can still help by plugging this cause on social media. Keep up the vital work you're doing to helping take care of somebody we love and need in this world!

With extra gratitude,
Major's family, friends, comrades and allies

Update #2

In early July 2019, Miss Major survived a stroke. She has been touched by the outpouring of community care: All of the prayers and prayer vigils, handwritten cards, fundraising events, donations (money, gifts, and time) and especially the ongoing work that trans people do to come together to take care of each other in her spirit—have been powerful support for her healing.

Still, the truth is that Miss Major now faces steep challenges both physically and financially. Major is on the path to recovery, but needs constant medical assistance—care that her new home state, Arkansas, does not provide.

We know the system needs to change. All of us should get the care we need. But right now, Miss Major needs us. We are writing in the hope that you can keep her safe and comfortable as she has made our trans community strong.

Miss Major just came home from a month in the hospital and a medical rehabilitation facility, and now needs $30,000 for in-home medical assistance in these next two months alone.

Today we are using this #MondayForMissMajor to kick off a #30Days30k fundraising push.

We are upping the goal for her online fundraiser on Fundly to $200K to help support Miss Major’s care, health and safety, but this #30Days30k campaign is for immediate needs.The community came through in a big way after we re-launched Miss Major's Circle of Care last fall: Over nine months, we raised $55,000—enough to meet Miss Major's basic monthly needs, and make her one of many people who helped to purchase a home that is being renovated into a permanent community retreat center, the House of GG Oasis, where she and others will train up future TLGB movement leaders.

Since her stroke in early July (including recurring monthly donations) we have raised just over $20,000. To ensure your donation goes directly to Miss Major, please give to this Fundly account. If you can, please become a MONTHLY donor at whatever level you can—$10, $25, $50, or more!

After that, will you join us by directly asking 5 individuals to make a 1 time gift, $5 to $50,000? Each contribution is meaningful and helps secure Miss Major’s safety and well being. Seriously.Make a list of 10 folks who you could ask and ask the 5 you think are most likely to say yes. Think about an amount you’d feel like they could say yes to, add some on top of it, and ask them if you can talk about Miss Major and the fundraising that is happening for her health needs.Talk about her, about her more than 50 years of ongoing leadership and work for trans safety and power, and then ask if they will join you in supporting her in getting her medical needs met. Ask for the specific amount and wait until they react or respond. Ideally ask privately, or in a setting where it feels respectful and not showy, on the spot, or a call out. Please honestly and earnestly invite some into this collaborative community of care for Miss Major.
