Welcome to Living With XXY's matching Grant Campaign for the 2021 giving season. On November 6th, we celebrated our 2nd anniversary as a nonprofit 501c(3). This year we are very grateful to have a $30,000 donation from an incredible family who believes in everything we are doing. This family would like to remain anonymous and would like this donation to go toward the General Fund. We are honored to have this fantastic fundraising opportunity to build more resources and continue our mission.
Living with XXY is changing the way the world views Klinefelter syndrome (47 XXY). Focusing on community, awareness, and positive traits.
Our general fund keeps the lights on and the wheels spinning forward. Examples: Our growing writing team works on biographies, blog posts, and projects. Website management, operation, and updates bring the latest information to people's fingertips—Custom educational materials on understanding Klinefelter syndrome as a parent, child, teen, and adult. Infertility, Managing our social media presence and producing podcasts, youtube videos, and documentary films. This year we would like to bring on SEO (search engine optimization) to help us reach the first page of google website searches. SEO will help create more awareness and bring community to those who feel alone.
It has been close to 80 years since Harry Klinefelter in 1942 discovered Klinefelter syndrome. Each generation of individuals diagnosed has faced its own set of challenges and difficulties. With hard work and determination, our community has come a long way.
We represent individuals, families, and friends from 40 different countries. "Hi, Ryan! My XXY boy was born a week and a half ago, and I just wanted to thank you for all that you're doing! We were being led to believe termination was our only option, and then my husband and I found your Instagram. It has made accepting and advocating for our son so much easier and honestly changed our lives, and has given us the tools to give our son the best possible life. THANK YOU" - Kori Fuchs
A clear and present vulnerability exists for Living With XXY: Each year, we face more babies wrongfully terminated, as NIPT (noninvasive prenatal testing) is becoming more readily available. Klinefelter syndrome is not a death sentence; we bring kindness, creativity, and empathy to a desperately needed world. With your help, please consider a donation so we can change the stigma.
