Save a Life of a Mother
Organized by: Lauren Hoye
This is a fundraiser for my best friend. I am going to respect her request, being a current victim of abuse, and attempt to leave names out until they recover and feel safe I can update you as to who she is and pictures of them recovering and send out a personal thank you to every individual who helps support this. (This is my first time fundraising but praying it is successful.) I hope if you know someone who is a target of abuse you will reach out to help them as well or see this and realize someone you know might be a victim of this specific kind of abuse. Police can only get involved in physical abuse so most of the time victims are silently crying out for help.. NOW from the beginning: I knew my dear friend long before she had her first baby and following a lot of misfortune and with such limitations she was forced to move in with someone claiming to help them. Before all that, she would work downtown and buy lunch for the homeless in the area, who she took the time to stop and get to know. She would pet sit on the side and use that money to donate to animal shelters. She was outgoing, beautiful, and giving with a huge heart. When she moved into that person's house with her family, and she disappeared for a while. After months of me attempting to contact, I saw her recently, she had a couple slight bald spots she tried to cover due to nervously pulling at her hair all the time, she looked sickly skinny, and she seemed very distant, she made very little eye contact, and seemed well...sad and uneasy. We had a talk but the whole time she acted scared like someone could possibly over hear. She has been isolated, as well as financially and emotionally abused by the person their staying with that said they would help. I wont keep this going with everything thats been done to her. Shes the only one being targeted but its still concerning and wants a to get her life back with her child. She is getting out to stay with her mom but needs some funding till she gets back on her feet especially leaving behind necessities. Anything large or small will help this family. Thanks for all your help even if its sharing to pass this along is greatly appreciated!
