“Community Roots” Sustainer ProgramI invite you to be a part of our Third Annual fundraiser! To stay true to my mission of providing accessible healthcare, healing services and herbal medicines to under-resourced LGBTQ+ people, people of color and survivors of sexual +/or intimate partner violence, I need your help. Give the Gift of Healing. Become a Monthly Sustainer
The Community Roots Sustainer Program is dedicated to our beloved friend Lizzie Lindsey who left this earth in November 2020. Lizzie was a genuine, quirky, one-of-a-kind friend who was also a past scholarship recipient. As an under-resourced, trans, queer person living with chronic illness, Lizzie exemplifies the reasons why this scholarship is so important. We love and miss you Lizzie.
In 2018, I began providing FREE services including reiki, coaching, herbal medicine consultations and herbs, without getting paid for my time/ energy/resources, to people who really needed it. I did it because I believe healthcare is a right; I am passionate about making sure people have access to holistic healthcare and opportunities for healing. But surviving in capitalism as a conscious business owner is hard! I couldn’t keep offering my time & services without compensation. In 2019, I started the Community Roots Scholarship Fund and raised enough to offer healing services + herbal medicines to 6 deserving people! (see below for details on what a scholarship recipient receives). In 2020 we were able to raise roughly the same amount as in 2019 and work with 4 lovely souls and gave away $400 worth of free medicines to those needing support due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We also donated $200 to the NC Mutual Herb Collective, a BIPOC led apothecary in Durham.
Did you Know: Providing one free appointment per week plus herbal medicines costs roughly $4800 per year!!!
