From our Jenny Ton over at ACMIST:


I’m on a mission by dedicating my milestone birthday to raise much needed funds for 2 nonprofits, Kearny Street Workshop & Sol Sisters Org!  I’m wearing the Sol Sisters tee (illustrated below) 30 ways for 30 days, style tips included to convince you to do good with us.  And we’re giving this tee and a beautiful outfit hand perfected by famous fashion designer Project Runsay Season 13 finalist, Kini Zamora for your support!

My birthday Campaign ends in 15 hours.  By 11:59 PM today donations to Kearny Street Workshop’s crowdfunding campaign ends.  They could use most of the support or you may donate to both :)  No amount is too small. 


Okay, my official birthday wish/ask! Please no gifts, no treats, not even a birthday shout out unless it’s to promote this birthday wish ;) I’d rather you use that time and dinero to kindly give back to Kearny Street Workshop & Sol Sisters. This would bring me the utmost joy, some serious peace of mind for turning a milestone age, and would be the best birthday gift ever!

Seriously, these two organizations give so much of themselves to others and continually inspire and uplift me when I’ve needed it the most. They both serendipitously came into my life during the most painfully traumatic time I’ve ever endured. A time that is still visceral that as I type these words, my tears are nearly ready for its descent. Although I volunteer my time to support both orgs and the communities we advocate for, I have and continue to be on the receiving end too.

In a selfless job, it’s easy to lose sight of your impact. Know that your kind donations are big affirmations of their unheralded hard work as the necessary change-makers and leaders we need.

***Kearny Street Workshop is the oldest multidisciplinary APA arts organization in the country. Their mission is to present, produce, and promote art that empowers Asian Pacific American artists and communities.

***Sol Sisters Org is an ethnically diverse group of women passionate about combining creative arts with mental health to celebrate and empower the diverse beauty of women that shines from the inside, out.
