BE PART OF TELLING THEIR STORIES

We are starting to pick up momentum going into the festival season and we are getting noticed.  The money we raise now goes directly to paying for our expenses we make our way through the festival circuit.

The Girl Who Wore Freedom is truly a grassroots effort, more than 55% of the donations we’ve received have been less than $50. 

In addition each month we have ongoing expenses, we need $5,000 per month for the next six months to meet our obligations. Thank you for donating!

There’s more to do! Help us across the finish line!

No matter the amount, partner with us to bring these inspiring stories to life.
