Stand With Us!

Riddle&Wisp is Partnering with Select Organizations to Support the Trans and Queer Communities, Here’s How YOU Can Help.

The recent heightened violence and legislative attacks committed against the Trans and Queer communities has not gone unnoticed during the short break I’ve taken to restock and expand this little, queer-owned shop.

Like many of us, my partner and I were forced to relocate out of fear for our safety which made the break a lot longer than intended. Riddle&Wisp is now back in business and I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have been supporting this little witch shop during these difficult times. Your continued patronage and support means everything to me.

We were fortunate enough to be able to move, but that is not a privilege afforded to most in our community. In light of this, I have decided to make a small contribution to help offset the cost of moving for those affected by the recent violence and legislative attacks committed against our communities.

Riddle&Wisp will be donating a portion of our modest profits to organizations that help protect our community and provide assistance to those who need it most. I hope you will join me in this effort by supporting A Place for Marsha and Point of Pride. Links for these organizations can be found in the descriptions below if you wish to support them directly. Because this is a small business, I am still in the process of determining how much we can donate, but I will update this page with more information as soon as it becomes available.

Support trans and queer businesses to uplift each other, keep our communities safe, and provide support for those who are being directly impacted by this violence. We hope that you can find it in your hearts to join us in this effort. Love Always Wins!

 

A Place for Marsha is named after famous LGBTQ+ activist: Marsha P. Johnson. Here, we are connecting the Trans Community to help each other secure housing in states where Trans Rights are treated as Human Rights. The mission of A Place for Marsha is to facilitate safe housing for trans individuals escaping transphobic states by connecting trans people (18+) from states with heavy anti-trans legislation with volunteers in safer states who are willing to offer shelter and support during their relocation.

Point of Pride is a true grassroots non-profit organization founded by trans people for trans people which donates 100% of their raised funds to the community they serve. Their mission is to help more members of the trans community feel affirmed and celebrated by providing access to life-saveing health and wellness services, while also advocating for the need for inclusive and supportive changes in our society.

Point of Pride has awarded almost half a million dollars in direct financial assistance and donated thousands of gender-affirming garments to trans youth and adults in all 50 states and around the world.
