The Cupcake Girls –(see video above) #1 Best Non-Profit for Sex Workers! Whether you’re currently a sex worker, retired from the industry or have been a victim of sex trafficking, The Cupcake Girls are there for you! They provide resources to suit each individual’s needs as well as intensive case-management to help you reach all your goals. They are not affiliated with any religion or political group and have no ulterior motives. They are non-judgmental, love without conditions and are available to help sex workers from anywhere. You do not need to live in Portland or Las Vegas, where their two offices are, to utilize their services.
Healthcare.gov – This is your one-stop shop for health insurance. Find out if you qualify for Medicaid, or see what plans are available for purchase and choose the plan that’s right for you.
Nutritionfacts.org – It’s hard to perform your best and to improve your mental health when your body is falling apart. The root of most ailments is a poor diet, but the media makes you think nutrition is complicated. One minute, they tell you eggs are bad and salt is evil. Then suddenly they are touting the health benefits of both. Escape the madness by searching this non-profit’s website. This website cuts the crap and gives you the facts based on scientific evidence rather than fads and marketing ploys.
Women’s self-defense – Nomad Krav Maga is the only officially licensed Krav Maga Worldwide training facility in Nevada. (Click here to find a training center in a different state or country.) It’s so important for women in particular to learn self-defense, and even more so in the sex work industry. While I encourage you to take any self-defense classes that are available in your budget and area, I must say Krav Maga is where it’s at. I’ve also heard many horror stories about abusive instructors who claimed to teach Krav Maga but weren’t certified. So please, make sure you go to an officially licensed training center.
Cats! – I’m definitely a crazy cat lady, and I like to make sure I’m constantly learning more about cats and doing my research. Of all the websites and resources I’ve found about cats, this is hands-down the most useful and eye-opening. If you have cats and you want what is best for them, bookmark this website and take the time to read it. There’s a ton of detailed information on this site. I still haven’t read it all yet!
Freecycle – Good for the environment and your wallet. Sign up to find a Freecycle group in your area. These groups give members a chance to get rid of items they no longer want and to take items they do want. This stops furniture, books, clothing, and more from ending up in landfills. When I lived in Florida, I was able to furnish my entire apartment with items I’d gotten from Freecycle!
Free Credit Reports – Get your free credit reports once a year from each credit reporting company (Transunion, Equifax and Experian). Authorized by federal law, this free service gives you the opportunity to ensure the information on your credit reports are correct and up to date.
Clip Store – We’ve all heard of Clips4Sale and other vendor sites, and those are fine, but they take a huge chunk out of your earnings. Keep your stores, but tack on an additional store from Vidown. You will get the best payout rates here. Contact me about setting up a store and I’ll give you all the information you need to get started. I’d also be more than happy to help set your store up, if you don’t have the time to do it yourself, and even to help edit videos for you.
