The Story

Hello lovelies!  

Panda & have made it to the East Coast, somewhere I hadn't really ever considered, but then the Femmeiverse brought all the signs from lots of people I trust.  By the grace of femmes, we are currently housed & fed, & but we still need some financial support for essentials.

We left everything in Salt Lake, & only brought 4 suitcases worth of clothes, books, & shoes, which isn't a lot.  I also had to borrow $500 through a payday loan to get us out, & my grace period has run out.  Over the weekend, my bank account was emptied due to fees & such because I could not pay the whole amount.  Fuck.    

Please consider donating to my paypal ([email protected]) or through YOUCARING!  I'm also offering tarot reading classes along with tarot readings & other spiritual guidance that you can book through High Moon Femme Tarot.  

I'm grateful for the work of supporting so many as a community femme healer, but I also want to stress how much I would also appreciate your generosity if you have enough to just give.  I am a single parent with almost no support from my family-of-origin because of trauma & abuse, & I work so hard everyday to keep myself & Panda here, alive, soft & open.  This is so much for one person to do on a daily basis.   

I got a new part time job last Friday that starts this week, but it'll be a few weeks before I get paid.  In the meantime, I've got food for this week, but will definitely be getting creative by Wednesday, & I don't want to wait until there's not a lot left before asking for support.  I've officially been here long enough to begin applying for assistance, which I am, but that always takes time & lots of emotional energy.  

In addition to funds for food, we also need money for transportation; an eventual coat; a few clothing basics for Panda with the cold weather; an eventual bed & blankets; paying off the payday loan, & finally, to help with maintenance related costs for High Moon Femme Tarot.  This is very important because this has been our main source of income since moving here.

Thank you so much for reading & sharing with you friends, fam, & community members!  

xoxo
​Lettie & Panda Pie


Lettie & Panda are two indigenous femme babe geniuses who travel through time to heal their communities, near & far.


Lettie is a queer indigenous femmeshark of the Diné nation, creating & dreaming in Salt Lake City, Utah. As a community healer, they organize in the name of the ones they love, breathing life into their work through poetry, tarot, selfies, & time traveling.

Panda was given the “Biggest Heart, Best Friend” award in kindergarten, & that’s not even the half of it. They are one of the most magical beings in all the femmeiverse! Panda likes to spend their time eating croissants & their vegetables, playing different card games, & playing Minecraft (which is kinda like virtual training for post apocalyptic revolution). They’re really good at drawing, & are all about the panda femme lifestyle.

Lettie's work is life-affirming and has sustained and held so many of us through the violence, trauma and grief caused by colonialism, white supremacy and heteropatriarchy. We have so much gratitude for all that Lettie shares, their resilience and radical vulnerability. We must support and uplift single, broke, brown queer mamas and our femme community healers! Please donate to help keep Lettie and Panda alive and thriving so they can transition to their new housing situation as safely and smoothly as possible!

"I just found some miraculously inexpensive tickets for Panda & I to finally get to our new Home!
I just need $200 more! Please send to my PayPal ([email protected]) so I can buy them today!
I was crying & praying last night for a miracle to get us out, & this is it! Please help us. 

Via Lettie Laughter:

"Sweet Ones,

My kiddo, Panda, & I need help getting to our new home that is 2,142 miles away from Salt Lake City!  

Stable housing has been a dream for us for a long time because poverty is a reality for this sick & disabled queer brown single mama femme community healer, & making sure our basic needs are met has been a struggle more often than not.

We were recently gifted a place to stay in a city where we are wanted, where femmeily is calling our names with arms & hearts open!  We have never before been offered such gifts, & you can bet I happy sobbed as the last sign came to me (lol it was more like the confirming sign because the signs have not stopped--i need a lot of confirmation), & I have been doing my best at getting us out.

I thought about driving us, about a cross country road trip with the few big belongings I wanted to keep (mainly my new bed & my altar), but my mental, emotional, & spiritual health are depleting faster than I can replenish.  We are now gonna fly.  This is where you come in.via Lettie
We need:
$800 for one-way plane tickets ASAP
$550 for bills
$450 for medical expenses 
$200 for food
Total: $2,000

Thank you so much!!!
