FTME Free Youth Binder Program

FtM Essentials and our parent company, Early to Bed, are happy to announce their Free Youth Binder Program. Designed for folks 24 and under who are unable to purchase a binder on their own due to financial circumstances, we are able to offer a limited number of free binders to qualifying individuals. Please read all the info below very carefully and if you feel like you qualify, you can apply below. 

Age: For folks 24 and under

Location: Right now this is only available to folks with shipping addresses in the US. 

Style: Right now were are able to offer Underworks Tri-Top Binders in White or Black.

Need: In your application please explain your financial or situational need. 

Please note the following about this program:

There are a limited number of binders available each month (depending on the amount of donations received each month) and recipients are chosen by random lottery. Please note that we cannot fill every request, but you can re-apply. Once you have received a binder from the program you are no longer eligible to apply for another one. We hope in the future to grow this program but for now please help us serve those most in need by only applying if you are truly unable to purchase a binder on your own. 

We reserve the right to end this program at any time.

Do you have old binders you want to pass on? We'll be happy to take them off your hands and pass them onto a local trans-serving social service agency. In fact, if you are located in the US, we'll even send you a pre-paid mailing label and a $5 gift certificate to FtM Essentials upon receipt! Just email info@ftmessentials.com and we can help you get your old binders to our shop in Chicago!
