Support My Cause "FOR WE ARE THE CAUSE"
Organized by: Cortney Davis
My name is Cortney , I am a single mother of three children, and in the process of getting a divorce. You see back in 2014 I married. My marriage was in many ways abusive for everyone on every level. I've learned that abuse isn't just physical, but it can also be emotional, spiritual, ,sexual, financial, etc.... I gave up my house to live with my husband so when it was time for somebody to leave it was of course the kids and I who left. We spent some time in a shelter, before God put us in our new home. It was an adjustment but way bigger than the four walls we shared while homeless, so we are greatful. But in the midst of all that had gone wrong in life I discovered my New Life. It has become what I know to be my normal, I mean iv'e been separated from my abuser for almost a year now. It has drained me from month to month just trying to keep life up and going. I pushed and pushed my way through by the grace and mercy of God and God alone. Everyday during the school year I drove 15 to 20 minutes to get them to school and then I'd spend my day volunteering at the shelter we once lived in. To this day although school is out and yet to arrive real soon, I travel every morning to the shelter to volunteer my time and myself to others who are going through what I been through. But as of two weeks ago the car we had gave up on us, I am in desperate need of a vehicle, as I stated before, I've been separated from my abuser for a while, in the mean time he took the dependable car we did have before I left him and all the money to. I draw disability due to my Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, Diabetes, etc..... I am very responsible and I do the best I can with what I have and am working everyday to improve myself and life for my children, but I can not do that to my fullest capabilities without a car. Please help me and my children, get back in a car, a more dependable car, we had no heat during the winter in our old car and no air during summer, we just want to be able to traveling in a safer more dependable car. I'm not looking to receive thousands and thousands of dollars, we are just in need of a vehicle, especially before school starts.
