Given by 206 generous donors in 5 weeks

We provided 101 free name badges with pronouns to 101 medical students in hospitals. This page is for people who want to pay-it-forward.

Auckland

This page has been set up for medical students who received a free name badge in our Pronouns 101 project to pay-it-forward to another student. Members of the public are more than welcome to support this fundraiser as well.

In celebration of our brand new Rainbow Communities Rep position, the Auckland University Medical Students’ Association (AUMSA) is proud to launch Pronouns 101. For this project, we gave away 101 free name badges with personal pronouns to 101 medical students on clinical placements.

Each student received a name badge with their pronouns, accompanied by an information sheet offering tips to help ensure their medical practice is safe for LGBTQITakatāpui+ patients.

Giving a $14 koha will cover the cost of one name badge with pronouns and its accompanying education pack for someone at medical school. You are welcome to give as much or as little as you wish.

We received overwhelming feedback that most people would like to cover the cost of their own badges and education packs. We have launched this fundraiser for students to pay-it-forward to another person at medical school.

As a thank you to RainbowYOUTH, we will be giving 10% of the proceeds of this Give A Little directly to them as a donation. Our friends at RainbowYOUTH have been incredibly supportive in providing consultation to ensure our project is safe for trans, intersex, non-binary and takatāpui people.

We would also like to thank our friends at MAS (www.mas.co.nz) for making such a meaningful commitment to our LGBTQITakatāpui+ communities by sponsoring all costs to cover the initial launch of this project. We truly appreciate your help in getting such an exciting project off the ground.

Any surplus funds will be allocated towards other projects and events delivered within our AUMSA Rainbow Communities Rep portfolio.
