For #GivingTuesdayNow, Your Donation Can Support Two Causes

#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled Dec 1, 2020 #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Due to COVID-19 the promising family foundation grants, totaling $15,000, have been relocated to organizations in need of emergency supplies. Although I understand the necessity for realistically reallocating the grant funds I also understand the importance of coming together as a community and supporting small businesses.

That said, today is the official public launch of my iFundWomen crowdfunding campaign. Your donation can support two causes:

1. The final cut of my film, exhibition, and screening presentations.
2. Making it accessible for people with visual and hearing disabilities. I’ve made it mandatory that the venues requesting my art for exhibition, include accessibility as a part of the program.

Here’s a how you can offer your support: 

1Support my campaign on iFundWomen – Your monetary contribution allows me the opportunity to complete the final cut of my film, and make it accessible for audiences with visual and hearing disabilities, with closed captioning and audio description. Here’s the link – https://ifundwomen.com/projects/i-am-more-my-hair-short-film

2. Prefer a tax-deduction? Donate via my fiscal sponsor, Docs In Progress.

Week #2: Filming for Keep a Child Alive

It’s week #2 into my my campaign for Keep a Child Alive (KCA). I’m still very busy planning, scheduling, filming and editing away. Thanks to the participants who’ve volunteered their time to allow me to film them saying a message of encouragement! Each individual brings something unique to the table and I’m sure it will be appreciated by the youth of KCA.

In order to make my campaign a success I still need to raise a total of $2,970. Remember that 100% of the proceeds will fund the youth-led peer support groups of Keep a Child Alive. You can donate as little as $5 and your donation is tax deductible. Visit my campaign page at www.support.keepachildalive.org/goto/Alyscia.

Here are week #2 round of videos.


Please donate to my campaign here. Remember, $1,000 covers a year’s worth of programming for the youth-led peer support group. With my goal of $3,000 3 groups will have 1-year worth or programming.

Here’s how you can help make this campaign a success…

  • Donate to the campaign. Instead of charging a fee to be filmed and edited, I ask that you please help fund the campaign and make it a success. No amount is too little.
  • Share, share, share! The more you can share on your social media platforms, email and word-of-mouth the more it will gain more attention and go viral (that’s the goal).

Thank you for your support!
