Replace The Ace- Safer Alternative Binding Campaign
Hello everyone. My name is Kaden Michael and I just wanted to let everyone know about a campaign I started. In April of this year, I ran across quite a few FTMs who were using harmful methods of binding (such as ace and tape). In an effort to assist as much as I could, I posted a status on Facebook, asking if anyone had a binder they were willing to donate to one of the guys I had contacted. The response was overwhelming.
I began getting emails from guys who were using harmful methods as well as guys who were looking to donate their old binders to the guys in need of safer alternatives.
In all the mess of Facebook messages and tweets on Twitter, Replace The Ace was born. I have finally gotten this campaign organized enough start a website (which is usable but still under construction), a Facebook page, and a Twitter account. (I’m also compiling testimonials and a documentation system to make all accounting information available upon request.)
I appreciate all the support that this campaign has gotten already, and I hope it continues. While I am currently only providing binders to those who CURRENTLY USE harmful methods, I am willing to help others (perhaps low income or underage) with obtaining binders as well. I am hoping that people will understand the importance of this issue and remain honest while I try to help everyone in someway.
If anyone knows of anyone currently using harmful methods of binding, please pass on Replace The Ace and have them fill out a binder request on the website. Also, if anyone is willing to donate a binder, that would be excellent as well. These binders are donated FOR FREE. The recipient NEVER pays for the binder OR for shipping (but we are currently only shipping within the United States). Passing on the message would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and best of luck to all of you,
