We are entirely volunteer-run and are unable to provide legal or expert advice. We conduct our own vetting of individuals and organizations and are in direct contact with the recipients of funds whenever possible. In other cases, we rely on the internal vetting process of other platforms such as Milaap.
Your decision to give is at your own discretion, but we encourage you to challenge yourself with how much you are able to give. Especially for our monthly donors, any amount is appreciated and welcomed, but we want to push the limit and get a little uncomfortable with how much we can redistribute. Most of us are sitting at the nexus of being physically located in the Global North and perhaps coming from backgrounds of generational wealth and other structural privilege, and we urge you to take those factors into account, in addition to your income, when contributing.
We are 100% transparent with where every single dollar is going, and keep detailed records. All receipts are posted publicly on our Instagram page, and can be accessed on our “receipts” highlight. We are building relationships with some organizations to donate on an ongoing basis, and create rapid response pools to different mutual aid organizations and individuals based on need at any given time. If you would like to suggest a fundraising pool or would like to collaborate, please reach out to us via e-mail or DM.
