Hi guys! I’m looking to help out a friend who’s in a serious spot and I want to help her anyway I can. We’ve been friends for damn near 10 years and despite us living in different states, we’re practically sisters.
However a few weeks ago she decided that she needed to end a negative cycle and move away from the toxicity her husband created (and continues to create for her and her three daughters). She has a GoFundMe page available and she was ready to leave the night of, however a pretty serious situation cropped up and she had to turn back. Now she’s stuck with her husband who has turned up the toxicity level by 1000%. Her husband doing everything in the book to keep her there by locking her out of the bank account and always berating her for wanting a divorce (yet he keeps telling her that she’s the love of his life, and he’ll change, and blah blah blah…). He even goes as far as making the cellphone chargers “disappear” and leaves her at their apartment while he’s out getting wasted/working/whatever, despite needing to man up and help rear his children (which he belittles her for asking for his help while he’s sleeping on the couch… jfc).
I need to help stop this.
I want to raise as much money as possible to get her a train ticket back to her parents house in Florida where she has REAL support for her and her children, and also begin to break the chains of control that he’s attempting to enforce.
Even if you cannot help, I think it’s important that she sees that she has support, so it would probably mean a lot to her if you can send her little words of approval to help build back up the confidence she has since lost. She’s a great person- albeit not perfect- but all she has is her drawing and writing to keep her awake during the day. She’s also a huge fan of Dragon Age (
and Cullen), so maybe fueling her with some head-canons would be awesome while I can work to build up a small savings to send to her.
I know she’s got a limit on her GoFundMe, but that’s just a minimum amount of what she’s going to need beyond the AmTrak ticket (which is roughly around $330, from Texas to Florida) with the leftovers going towards purchasing food and necessities for the toddlers and baby, both during the trip and after she gets back to her parents.
Anyway, here’s how you can help.
- You can donate to her travel expenses on her GoFundMe page.
- You can commission me for some art.
- You can purchase some of my adoptable (if available).
If you’re interested in helping donating to the cause, feel free to contact me. Please check out my commission info page for additional details.
If you can’t donate, it’s okay.
- Don’t feel bad about! You can still help me by putting this on 9000% signal boost. Blog and reblog this post until you are satisfied
with annoying people.
