Do Good Good Friday!
Whether or not you are celebrating any sort of holiday this weekend, I have an excellent opportunity for you to do good. One of our favorite beauty lines, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, is helping staff member January Hunt complete her transgender surgery through awareness and fundraising campaign January Rising. Snag a limited edition OCC January Rising lip tar in exchange for a $25.00 donation.
January has always struggled with her gender: “As an individual who was coercively assigned male at birth, identifying as female from an early age felt deeply shameful, frightening, and at times ridiculuous. Without the language or the backbone of a community to support me, it was easy to be led astray by the narrow two-gender system presented by society.” Three years ago, she decided to begin her transgender transformation.
Unfortunately, the next step in her transformation process is a biggie, both financially and surgically. According to January, “most private and public health insurance organizations do not cover surgeries for transgender people, even if deemed medically necessary by a physician or therapist.”
This fundraiser is determined to spread awareness of gender confirmation issues and help January complete her process. Click here to purchase your OCC January Rising Lip Tar and support January!
Do good. Look fabulous.
