The funds I am raising will be used to help me and my son get financially stable after fleeing our home with nothing and nowhere to go a dozen years ago. We are the lucky ones. We left before someone got critically injured or died and we won a landmark court case for our personal freedom. But we still don't have a home or car or bank account. The economic abuse that accompanies domestic violence can be bone crushing for decades.
Secondly, I feel the need to reach behind closed doors to those who are still experiencing family violence and empower them to leave before they die. I am dreaming of more photo shoots with professional models and disgusting statistics to share. And I have written a song about domestic violence to the tune of "When You Wish Upon A Star" called TIME TO GO.
I will be recording a beautiful music video of this song with my harp, a singer and 7 string violin player Jimmy Be Free (There are only 3 of these violins on the planet!) Then we can leverage our music video for more funds to get the campaign and our video on National TV and in National print publications.
If you can only share one dollar please do. You have no idea how much that helps!!!! Our deepest gratitude to all who have helped us survive all these years and to those who will step up to help now!
