Helping A’Myla

Fundraising for A'Myla, who was born with a hole in her heart.

"This is all very tough on me as I am a single mother of 4 children with no help. I’m not one to ask for help but not being able to work and taking care of everything is hard. The money will be used to get back and forth to st.johns currently and in the near future back and forth to st.louis for her open heart surgery." — Brittiny, A'Myla's mother.

Stage 4 Cancer Survivor Relapsed - Need Funds

Raising money for Markayla, whose stage four cancer has returned.

"Hi everyone, this is Markayla. When I was 17 years old, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. I went through aggressive chemotherapy for 2 months during the summer of 2018. And then I went through 30 days of radiation in October of 2018. January of 2019, I was told that I was in remission. This treatment is very expensive and I simply cant not afford it right now." — Markayla

Help a Black queer creative escape abuse

Fundraising for a Black queer creative trapped in an abusive situation.


"This summer, I realized my life was in danger because of an abusive ex. He knows that as long as I live in his hometown, he will have control over me. I need your help to leave. At this current moment, I’m unemployed and raising funds for moving expenses (including plane ticket) and transportation in my new city (used car and insurance). If I don’t leave, I’m convinced that he or his family members or friends will physically harm me."

Fundraising for Oke Obi-Enadhuze's family

The family of Oke Obi-Enadhuze is reeling after his death due to ongoing unrest in Nigeria. They are fundraising for basic living costs after losing everything, including their home.

"This is for Oke Obi-Enadhuze. He was a victim of the ongoing unrest in Nigeria. Along with losing Oke, his family lost every other thing. Their house in Lagos Nigeria was vandalized and set on fire. They have almost nothing left.

Oke worked very hard because he had his widowed mother and younger brother to care for. We are doing this to his support mother and younger brother as much as we can in this very difficult period." — Fundraiser organisers
