Round 2! 100% of the funds collected will be equally divided and invested into two organizations, SisTers Pgh and Finca FlamboyánT.
Make a contribution of $15 to be entered to win a set of 16 artist hankies from the Queer Ecology Hanky Project. There are four sets of hankies to choose from. Each contribution buys you one entry--one chance to win the hanky set of your choice. Or for $50, with Something for Everybody, you get four entries--one entry to each of the four hanky packs. Contribute as much as you like! If you win, you will receive all 16 hankies in the hanky pack, with an estimated $400 value for each set. These hankies were printed and designed for the Queer Ecology Hanky Project. Individual information about artists and hankies is included in each set.
The fundraiser will close during the full moon, on Friday October 31st at midnight, and we will pull and announce winners on Monday November 2nd. We will post the full amount raised and donation receipts.

A QTPOC-stewarded land project, artist retreat and home in the southwest mountains of PR. Finca FlamboyánT serves as a sanctuary for marginalized folks to spend time in, work on their art, learn/teach about farming and plant medicine, skill-share or just come and take a break for healing and rejuvenation in a rural, tropical setting. Finca FlamboyánT is a part of a larger network of agoecological land projects in PR working towards food sovereignty & land reclamation in the face of historical and ongoing capitalist & colonial subjectification. As an anti-colonial project, La Finca centralizes the experience of Puerto Ricans, latinx, Black, and indigenous folks while welcoming all people of color of the diaspora as a part of our community. Recognizing the intersecting iImpact of racism, homophobia, and gender based violence, Finca FlamboyánT is specifically a project for and by Queer People of Color impacted by colonialism, displacement, and diaspora. As queer people, and as people of color, we need access to natural spaces in which to cultivate our own connection to land, place, and food systems. It is critical that spaces exist which prioritize our survival, well-being and ability to strengthen our community. At Finca FlamboyánT, we aim to maintain a safer space for learning, healing, growing and building together in a supportive environment created for and by us, From The Brown Up.
