I just wanted to add a bit about myself.... I turned 40 this yr. and when I heard of this opportunity I thought, perfect right before my 41st, I've got this. Then I started reading and talking about It Happened to Alexa foudation. I can't tell you how many women I know personally who have been raped. Never reported because there was no support system like this foundation provides for the victims. These women's scars are with them for life. I'm so proud to be raising money for such an amaing organization and plan on doing all I can to reach my goal and work with them inthe future as well. Unfortunately rape will probably not go away. But this organization will do all it can so hopefully there will be less incidents in the future.
t's been awhile since I've been on here begging.....but the time has come and I must start again! In case you were unaware I've been campaigning to raise money for a foundation called It Happened to Alexa....this organization is small and one of a kind, helping rape victims around the globe. Now more than ever this organization is needed to help the women of the world. So much human trafficking happens in the United States and abroad. This organization helps these women as well as so many others. Please if you can donate!
