It is hard to ask for help when you've done nothing but help others with out expecting anything in return for what you do comes from the heart. I am asking for your kind donation or T-Shirt purchase, to aid others like myself to begin to live in comfort.

Do you believe in the motto, "PAYING IT FORWARD” ?

It is amazing how one's personal life's journey can shower others with encouragement with being enlighten only to find surprising oneself while assisting others.

”Touch a life and let a life touch you”.-  DonVito (aka Flex Jonez the Entertainer)

What is this Campaign Fund About &  Why the Need for Help?

My Transition has not been an easy process, each day it has been a struggle which I fight with determination each day as well. Determination to live in comfort being who I am with the love of self, a 52 year old transgender female to male person that cares for others.

Because of society’s face value as a Gendered Male of color no other would have phantom to think that I’ve been a victim / survivor of; transphobia discrimination,Racial profiling, prejudice, bashing, and life threatening violence. Having lived to experience all of these issues I have had to rearrange my life with caution and care toward my wellbeing and livelihood within employment and society. Through it all I have not turn my back in any negative way toward life or society.

During my transitional journey unable to find funding assistance, I've managed to save a mere $900 to apply toward the total amount needed funds for needed surgery procedures. There are several concerned health risk that I am facing with age without having any type of (Top Surgery [Mastectomy] and Bottom Surgery [Hysterectomy]) surgery and with HRT (Hormonal Replacement Therapy) there is the risk of cancer, heart attack, and more.

In the state which I enjoy living in, I am faced with the high insurance fees that can be stressful for any person living with an income no more than a few cents above minimum wage. I do not qualify for Medicaid, nor able to pay for insurance provisions offered by my employer. To find an insurance coverage that would assist with many of my surgery procedures is very difficult as well.

Many people are not aware the insurance industry categorizes Transgender surgeries as a form of selective reconstructive cosmetic surgery; which most insurance companies will not cover this includes the Government insurance program as well. Which is why many like myself resort to fundraising, loans, donations and more to assist with required surgeries.

I ask that you consider placing a DONATION HERE or consider purchasing your "PAY IT FORWARD t-shirt" today.

With a thank you, please know and understand that your assistance towards the goal of this campain be it by mere donation or by purchasing a T-shirt. will allow not only myself, but others like myself to begin to live in comfort. As we continue to "PAYING IT FOWARD" toward many others facing life challenges and hardships be it homelessness, hunger, fighting disease, and more we also change lives in a very productive positive manner.

How I've Paid It Foward

I am DonVito aka Flex Jonez  with  a humble, patient, unselfish, giving, and a non-confrontational person that has welcomed those that I have cross paths with to share and express their delight in seeing these characteristics which are present in my spirit. When I began my plight, toward my transitional journey, I had no idea I would find many people from all walks of life at my side that would give to me inspiring and insightful support within many avenues.

Living as a Gendered Male of color no other would have phantom to think that I’ve been a victim / survivor of; transphobia discrimination, prejudice, bashing, and life threatening violence. Having lived to experience all of these issues I have had to rearrange my life with caution and care toward my wellbeing and livelihood within employment and society. Through it all I have not turn my back in any negative way toward life. 

Many people continually without hesitation have fallen to encourage my flight to stay focused within my personal passion, continued goals, and positive outreach toward my fellow men / women and in turn others have followed my steps toward "PAYING IT FORWARD".

I deeply live life with the belief, "What was given to you freely by others, was given to see that you may live in comfort within the confinements of society; for that you shall always give back freely and unselfishly as well."
