Hey, been awhile, everyone!
I'm posting today for a very special reason. There is a young woman fighting to free herself from an abusive home who has swallowed her pride and asked the internet to help. This young woman is not my friend. She is a stranger to me. However, she is not a stranger to my friends. She is the girl we all know that we can't understand why she doesn't just LEAVE.
For her, it's money. It's transportation restrictions. It's a dependency on the same people who emotionally assault her.
Shannon has a plan. She has a support system. She is successfully looking for work. All she needs is the funds to help her push off and get there.
A big donation is not necessary. Plenty of people have donated 5$. Seriously, no amount of giving is too little. Even if the donation may not seem like much, the warmth and willingness that people CARE will help keep her going. It is desperately brave for an emotional abuse victim to break the cycle and get out. Let her know.
