After ensuring the wig is of good quality, it will be shipped to the candidates free of charge. Veras will often ask applicants about wig styles they are interested in and inform them of what is available at the given time. She will do her best to accommodate all requests, but if the type of wig you want is not available, you will be added to a waiting list. When she is able to obtain the wig of your choice, she will contact you.
If you are looking to donate a wig, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. If you’re sending a composite unit, Veras recommends using brand new equipment instead of second hand because composites wear out more easily. She’s fine with used units made from human hair because they can be easily remade. You can even send separate bundles of hair, which she can use to make wigs. “It really is send me what you have, and I’ll make something beautiful out of it,” she explains.
Laced Together is open to people living in the United States, whether they’re looking to donate or they’re trans black in need of a quality wig. If you don’t have a wig but still want to support the cause, don’t worry; There are other ways to get involved. You can donate money directly to For the Gworls to help fund the many programs they have, including Laced Together. These funds provide Veras with the means to submit sponsors’ shipping labels, ship wigs to applicants, and rework donor wigs as needed.
Both Veras and Armon hope that this program can provide their communities with what they need in addition to funds and other services, such as free spiritual readings, has been provided by For the Gworlds. Veras is very proud to be partnering with her friend and the FTG because the organization’s mission means so much to her. “I just want it to reach as many people as possible. I want to help all the girls,” Veras said. “It sounds crazy because it’s a bit unrealistic. But I want to reach everyone.”
