Financially supporting Vicky Beeching’s work
Recently, a few people have asked if there is a way to support the Equality Campaigning work that I do through one-off, or more regular, financial giving.
This has not been something I’ve needed in the past, but since losing my former music career after coming out as gay, I now spend my time writing, speaking, and taking every chance I can to get out a message of LGBTQ inclusion.
Some of these opportunities are paid, but many are not. Often it’s the unpaid ones that are the most impactful and that I want to say yes to, but I also have to keep a roof over my head 🙂
I’m not salaried, not on the staff of an organisation, church, or charity, and I do not have a Foundation funding me, so at times money can be tight. I’d love to be able to say yes to more of the work that doesn’t pay but is equally important. I spend a lot of time replying to enquires from LGBTQ people seeking help, advice, and to be linked up with resources in their local area. It’s unpaid but important things like this that I wish I could do more of.
For those who are asking – the best way to support my work financially is online, via Paypal, using this Paypal link. (My Paypal address is firstname.lastname@example.org).
Paypal allows you to include a message with your donation, so do say hello there. Every little helps, so no gift of support is too small. Just buying me a coffee means I can use a coffee shop as my ‘office’ for a few hours, so it all makes a difference.
If you do not use Paypal, you can send a cheque by post, made out to Vicky Beeching. Message me through the Contact Page on this website saying you want to send a cheque, and I, or my volunteer administrator, will reply and let you know the correct postal address. (I used to have a publicly advertised PoBox address but had to close it down recently due to receiving inappropriate messages and ‘trolling’). I now have a private address solely for anyone wanting to send financial support.
Thank you for supporting my work – it means more than I can say.
