Wild Seed Wellness offers affordable massage therapy for queer and trans people of color in Oakland. We are raising funds to support 1st and 3rd Tuesdays Donation-Based Massage, and the Community Appreciation and Emergency Wellness Funds. All money goes to make massage therapy available to queer and trans people of color. Our goal is to raise $6000 by May 23rd.
QTPOC COMMUNITY CARE FUND
The QTPOC Community Care Fund supports the wellness of the QTPOC community through massage therapy services. The 3 pieces are 1st and 3rd Tuesdays Donation Based Massage, Community Appreciation Fund and the Emergency Welness Fund. Between August 2011 and October 2012, Wild Seed Wellness offered space for 140 hours of donation-based massages for queer and trans people of color in Oakland. In this time, Ana saw a number of clients who have been very grateful to have these services. The Community Appreciation and the Emergency Wellness Funds are new addition to the practice. The Community Appreciation Fund goes to acknowledge and sustain the work of community members through organizing, education, arts and healing by offering a massage therapy service. The Emergency Wellness Fund serves to goes to QTPOC in need of massage therapy due to emergency, accidents, acute, episodic or chronic illness and who lack access to other healing resources.
