Unicorn Love Kit Fundraiser

$43

Our Unicorn Love Fundraiser features a hand-dyed mini-skein bundle from Brediculous Yarns and the Unicorn Love Cowl designed by Meg Croft. $10 from each kit will be donated to the Gender Affirmation Project run by the Trans-ilience Lab at Michigan State University.

Our intent is to improve mental health within our own community, raise awareness of the Gender Affirmation Project, and be able to completely fund one individual through legal gender affirmation. (We hope to be able to fund additional individuals as well, and will re-stock our kits if we start to sell out.)

"The process of legal gender affirmation is often challenging, costly, and confusing, which can cause distress and interfere with daily life for trans and nonbinary people who desire such changes. Legal name changes require a petition to the court, attending a court hearing, publishing a notice of the change in a newspaper, getting a background check, navigating confusing paperwork, and paying fees, which can amount to $300-350. 

The Gender Affirmation Project's purpose is to improve access to legal name and/or gender marker changes while also promoting health and well-being for trans and nonbinary individuals. Identification documents impact nearly every aspect of a person's life, and for trans and nonbinary individuals, not having their name and/or gender marker updated on their documents can negatively impact their employment, housing, healthcare, and education.

The program's eligibility criteria are being trans or nonbinary, aged 18 or above, living in Ingham County, and self-reported financial need for those seeking financial assistance."

-- Dr Jae Puckett, Director of Trans-ilience Lab at Michigan State University.
