I don't know if anyone else will see this (considering the sad state of my poor, neglected blog), but I am trying to put the word out in any way that I can.
A dear friend of mine left her abusive husband about six months ago. She is now a single mom to three young children. Her courage in leaving him was great - it was a terrible, terrible situation and it still amazes me she lived through it, and is now on the other side.
Only, she isn't really. Not yet.
Her legal fees are mounting rapidly. He has caused her to spend an enormous amount of money already, and now he is trying to get custody of the children. This man, who abused her in every way imaginable for over a decade is still trying to victimize her. Because of the protection order, he can't get to her physically, so he's going for her where it really hurts - their children.
She needs to raise $1200 by Monday the 12th. Because of his constant emails and phone calls to her laywer, she's spent all her money and more already. There is an important hearing that day and it is critical that she continue to have legal representation.
Please consider donating to help her with her legal fees. This is a chance to help a family in need - a family who has already suffered so much. Please consider helping, and sharing as well. The more we can get the word out, the more people can come to her aid.
