2013 Holiday Cards! Get on my list

by Jiz Lee on / Karma Pervs

[Update: Cards are sold out!]

Once again, I’m sending out special, limited-edition HOLIDAY CARDS! Past years, I’ve had cards created by designer Jamee Baiser and comic illustrator Erika Moen.

This year I’m creating my Holiday Cards with… artist Alicyn Murphy, based on a certain photo by Shilo McCabe! This year I’ll be sending cards to everyone who has ordered a DVD from me in 2013. But I also want to give others a chance. It’s not too late to get on my list! You have between NOW and December 20th to “Give a little, get a little!” (And a little goes a LONG way.)

How to Get a Holiday Card:

A) Buy a Card

Just want the card? Buy one directly from me for $5. (You can also buy a pack of 5 for $20.) Shipping included.
[Link deleted, cards are sold out!]

B) Order a Signed DVD

Chose from one of these 3 films for $50, includes shipping. (Email jiz@jizlee.com if you’d like a different DVD or price.)

Or watch online: DVDs not your thing? Purchase a membership to CrashPad or buy minutes on the fair-trade progressive porn site PinkLabel via these links, to help support my work at Pink & White Productions:

(Make sure you email me confirmation, along with your mailing address!)

C) Donate to Charity

Make a donation (of any amount) to an organization that does great work in our community. Here are some of my favorites:

All of these are located within the United States and are Tax Deductible. Or donate to an organization of YOUR choice and let me know why it rocks you!

After you donate, email me (jiz@jizlee.com) a receipt or confirmation along with your mailing address, and I’ll mail you a card as a thanks for supporting queer-friendly, sex worker-friendly, kink-friendly, sex-positive organizations. (Limited supply!)

(Or “D… All of the above!”)

Questions? Email me (jiz@jizlee.com). I’m sending cards on Friday, December 20th, so Act Now!

Benefiting Lyon-Martin Health Services, Health Care for Women & Trans

by Jiz Lee on / Goals and Ideas

As some of you may be aware, Lyon-Martin Health Services, a non-profit health organization for women and transgender patients is in a deep financial crisis. Though I raised money for them last year as a Karma Pervs recipient, I’m going to also devote February for even more fundraising. Their existence and continued service is vital. Lyon-Martin is the clinic that I go to, and many of my friends depend upon.

Last year, Lyon-Martin provided care to almost 2,500 patients who were queer-identified, people of color, and homeless or marginally housed. They detected breast cancer, treated patients with HIV, diabetes, abnormal pap smears (which may have progressed to cervical cancer) and also provided care and distributed hormones to hundreds of transgender patients. In addition to physical care they also provide counseling. And all of their services are sliding scale to allow for service to people of varying income levels.

The immediate goal is to raise $250,000. At a benefit held at El Rio last weekend, we raised $60,000 in about three hours, thanks to a matching pledge by Water Restoration. We’re really close to reaching this amount and any little bit helps. You can donate online, by mail (1748 Market Street, Suite 201, San Francisco, CA 94102) or phone (415-901-7131), and also through purchasing some of the films I’m selling to raise money.

Special Orders – Signed DVDs $50

To do what I can, I am selling signed DVDs at $50 each to benefit the health organization. These videos normally retail at around $30 and include titles by Courtney Trouble, Carlos Batts, Madison Young and Shine Louise Houston. Click over to my film page to select a video. Look for any title that has a note that it’s available. Then contact me via email (jiz@jizlee.com) to arrange for me to send it to you.

Thank you for helping keep my health care at Lyon-Martin!
