Over the past several years, we've partnered with 14 transgender folks to help them raise funds for their gender-affirming surgeries. We successfully raised over $32k for these 14 folks!
Mid-2022, we chose to shift our focus toward supporting as many folks and organizations as possible instead of partnering with one individual at a time. We've continued supporting the queer community through donations to LGBTQIA+ organizations such as Jane's Due Process, Trans Santa, The Marsha P. Johnson Institute, several folks' GoFundMe campaigns, and more. Our goal remains to change the world and look damn fine doing it!
Have a campaign or organization you think we should consider donating to? Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know!
Our 14th fundraiser might look a little familiar to y’all! Rory has been around as a rep for FLAVNT for years and even serves as one of our rep captains, managing our rep teams. He’d actually never applied to our fundraising partnerships until this go around, and we couldn’t be more excited to have helped him reach his goal of raising $4000 for top surgery! Rory received top surgery on September 3rd, 2021.
Our 13th fundraising partnership kicked off in the fall of 2020 with #SupportJay and finished right before Christmas. Jay fundraised for top surgery and is hoping to undergo surgery in Plano, TX, in early 2021 — allowing him to begin working as a firefighter later on in the year. Jay uses he/him pronouns, is engaged to a wonderful woman who he adores and is a pet parent to a couple of fur-babies. We raised just over $3,500 in 3 months through your support!
In between our 12th and 13th fundraisers, during the Summer of 2020 we dedicated Pride Month to a BLM fundraising effort in the wake of the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and so many more. In just over a month we were able to (with the help of so many of you) donate $2565.45 between the Marsha P. Johnson Institute and the LGBTQ Freedom Fund!
#SupportDunhill was our 12th fundraising partner at FLAVNT. Dunhill is a trans woman living in Austin, TX, and we helped raise $3000 for her breast augmentation which she had done in February of 2020.
Our eleventh partnership was a crash fundraiser for #SupportDre. We partnered with Dre to raise money for their top surgery on January 3rd, 2019. In only 21 days but we managed to raise $786!
Drew has been a FLAVNT rep since 2015 and is our Customer Service guru was our 10th partner. In just 4 months of #SupportDrew we met his goal and helped raise $2,387 for his top surgery which he had in September 2019.
Our #SupportBlair fundraiser was one of our most successful fundraisers thus far at $2785 raised for Blair’s breast augmentation!
#SupportElliott — In a little under a month, we crash fundraised $500 for Elliott's top surgery — who successfully underwent surgery with Dr. Raphael in Plano, TX.
Spencer has been one of our reps at FLAVNT since year 1 and applied to fundraise with us several times before their turn came up in 2017. #SupportSpencer raised $2500 and they had top surgery with Dr. Dulin in Plano, TX on April 11, 2018. They are now one of our very dearest friends and one of the sweetest souls you will ever meet.
Chris (who is one of our co-founders), helped 5 other people raise money and get surgery before we decided it was his turn. If you don't know who Chris is, he can be found on instagram, tumblr, and youtube under the username @seethestarsablaze.
Chris had Double Incision top surgery with Dr. Raphael in Plano, TX on January 4th, 2017 after meeting his $6000 fundraising goal. FLAVNT contributed $2,744 to #SupportChris in 4 months.
#SupportJett ran from March 1 until July 9, 2016. Due to a lack of funds, Jett was unable to get top surgery in 2015 on his scheduled surgery date so he lost his deposit and his surgery was pushed off even further. In the 4 months we were partnered together, we helped Jett (through your support) raise a whopping $2,250 and he had his surgery on July 12, 2016. He can be found on instagram @littleprince_cafc, tumblr @theprinceofallprinces and on his youtube channel!
Our fourth partnership and first pseudo-crash-fundraiser #SupportAiden. Aiden was supposed to get top surgery in August of 2016, but due to being accepted to a very prestigious year long mission trip program, he had to move his surgery date up to February instead. We successfully raised $845 for Aiden in 5 weeks through the help and support of the community!
Our third partner received their phalloplasty on December 9, 2015 with Dr. Chen in California. In 3.5 months during our fundraiser, we helped raise $1600 for their bottom surgery.
**This partner has requested to be anonymous
We partnered with Caden from February-July 2016. He reached his $5,000 goal at the beginning of July (a little over $1,600 raised by FLAVNT in our #SupportCaden campaign!) and had his top surgery in August 2016.
** We choose not to associate with our first partner even though we successfully raised over $1200 for his top surgery due to several instances of his taking advantage of the community and not aligning with our values as a brand.
