My name is Jaisha. I am a mtf transgender parent.. I am looking for the support of 1000 understanding people To donate $10 each to help me complete my transition.

My name is Jaisha Kaniz.. I am a loving parent and partner.. I was born in the UK but since 2002 I have been living in Thailand and working in the surrounding countries. 

Up untill May 2016 I was all set to save enough money to have SRS surgery to complete my journey to become female.... I came out in 2015 and have luckly had the support from friends and family.. 

Unfortunately I was not so lucky concerning my employment... I was 'let go'from my position (unofficially for being transgender) and have since been unable to find employment ANYWHERE ... I worked in the experimental education industry for 20 years. But it is now apparent companies do not want to hire me due to fear of backlash from parents having a transgender individual interacting with their children.!!

My insurance does not cover this surgery

I am barely able to support myself let alone my family

Due to the nature of my skill set. My age and my location and the fact that I am openly transgender I am in a situation where I Have become unemployable! 

This loss of financial security and stoppage placed upon my transition has caused me to fall into a  state of anxiety and depression.. And a close suicide attempt..  I must pull myself out of this  for the sake of myself and my family..they need their leader back. 

 I'm a firm believer in working for the things you need and I have a hard work ethic.. I would even cancel this fundraiser if someone out there could offer me a job instead of the $10... 

I have come to the conclusion that I will never be able to save for this surgery  as any money I can make from small consultancy work goes straight to the family as their needs come first. 

I don't like asking for help..and I don't think I can fully explain just how important this surgery means to me... That's why I am looking for people who can understand or empathize with my situation.. I am more than happy to talk with anyone should they wish to know more about me. My family. My life.. But it is hard to convey  this in a few short words and expect people to understand... 

I just hope there are enough decent people out there who will help if they can... All I ask is for $10....and it will literally change not only my life but also that of my family... 

 

Thank you for your time

Jaisha
