I became a victim of domestic violence when I was first married in 2005. At this time there were several times where I didn't think I'd make it to see the next day. As the time slowly went on, I realized I was better than this and in 2011 I decided enough was enough and magically managed to escape a horrible situation alive. As a result of this I've learned things about myself and have become much stronger as a person. I've overcome the physical, mental and emotional abuse but there's others out there that aren't able to. It bothers me that there's so many other women/children out there in this world every minute that fall victim to this and have no place to go or no one to turn to for help. I know what's it like to be in a situation like this. Therefore, the proceeds raised from this fundraiser will go towards the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence. This is something that is very dear to me. Thanks in advance for any donation!
