Jennys Birthday 2020 LGBTQIP+ Black Lives Matter, lets provide some therapy and support for woman and girls.

Campaign has ended.

Trigger Warning: Talk of LGBTQIP+ murder stats. I chose this charity because LQBTQIP+ people suffer hate crimes, violence. and even murder. There were 331 murders worldwide by Transgender Day of Remembrance in 2019. There were 26 trans women of colour murdered in the U.S. in 2019 alone. It is so awful, these people lost their lives, their families lost parents, sisters, aunts, their friends lost them, lives were wrecked and it will never be the same.  


So the time is now to support people of colour, and this charity supports LGBTQIP+ woman of colour, and included in that are of course trans women of colour, so it means a lot to me. 


If you could help by donating I would be very grateful. 


Thank you very much, I love you all. x x Jenny  x x 

Thank you so much for your interest in supporting the Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund. Whether you have already donated or you are just learning about the project, we are grateful to have you on board.


 With therapy sessions in the U.S. typically costing anywhere from $60 - $250-- even with insurance, the prevalent and ingrained stigma surrounding mental health in many communities, and the fact that the vast majority of therapists in this country are white, it is often difficult for Black women and girls to access therapy when they need it. We wanted to change that. 


In our pilot program, we raised over $250,000 with the support of our generous community and provided financial assistance to hundreds of Black women and girls to go to therapy. We did this through collaborative partnerships with  Therapy for Black Girls, Open Path Collective, National Queer and Trans Therapists of Color Network, and Talkspace, networks and service providers that are all committed to making therapy more affordable and accessible. 


No matter how much you are able to give, we are excited to work together with our community again to bring therapy support directly to Black women and girls who need it. Please donate now to tangibly tell these women and girls, “We see you, we hear you, and we are invested in your healing.”Generations will benefit from their healing.
