Dear Family, Friends & Allies,
Ashley here, budding poet and writer! This summer I have been accepted to the Lambda Literary Foundation’s Emerging LGBT Writers Retreat!!! I am too excited to attend and I need your help!!! The foundation has supplied me with a scholarship of $1000 and I am looking to raise the remaining $650.
My goal is to raise $350 by June 15th and the remaining $300 by June 29th. Any funds that are raised past $650 will be donated to the Lambda Literary Foundation. Please continue to donate to this awesome organization.
I still need funds for plane tickets. If I meet my fundraising goal of $650 and you would like to donate to me directly, please donate on my person PayPal account at ayoung536 @ gmail dot com.
I am counting on you to make a donation so that I can attending this amazing retreat this summer! So donate your $5s, $10’s and $20’s to help me write my queer little heart out spread the word to those you know can help. You would be supporting my career as a writer and contribute greatly to the LGBT community!
