Harnessing the Power of our Community

Alright guys, I have been doing a lot of soul searching about this site and how I can use what we have built to best benefit our community here and the world, and I am implementing something new. I want to harness the power of our community and share a family/ spouses crowdfunding page who is escaping from an abusive situation, each month. There will be a few requirements, of course. And as much as I want to, I know I won’t be able to share everyones stories. But we as a group can help to make a huge difference for a few families and I believe we should contribute as we are able. If you are not in a position to contribute financially, encouragement, and direction to local resources that can help are always appreciated. Add them to the comments of the blog. RisebyLiftingOthers

Requirements for Submission:

  1. There must be genuine need.
  2. You must create a legitimate page at www.youcaring.com
  3. You must email me with the specifics of your situation.

Any documenting proof you can add will help. You are free to remain anonymous on your You Caring page, however when emailing me I will need to know who you are, where you are, and anything else that will help me to determine if your case is real and you genuinely need the help. I am going to review cases at my best discretion, knowing that a hallmark of these situations is the abusers ability to make the victim appear unstable and crazy. I will do my best to direct you to other sources of help if I am unable to add you to the blog. Email me at RescueFund.CS@gmail.com

February 2016 Submission:

This month we are supporting a young mom and her two kids. She has been lied about, financially, verbally, emotionally and physically abused by her soon to be ex. He has done everything in his power to turn the children against her, while abusing them as well. She has already kicked him out of her home, although he did manage to lie about her to the police she called during their last fight and have her sent to jailfor two nights. That case has been dismissed. She chooses to remain anonymous to protect herself and her kids as she fights for primary custody. The funds she’s asking for will be used to support her and her children as they fight to survive and for freedom. Please donate HERE.

If you are in a similar situation and need help, be it financial or direction to resources, please email me at RescueFund.CS@gmail.com.

    I am unsure of the location this woman is, but in Washington State there is a group called Helping Hands. They will place a family in a house that is furnished for up to 6 months rent free to assist them getting back on their feet. They also help with clothing, employment and guide you to further programs needed.
    I hope this helps.

    Samantha, good on you for your awesome works here. I’m sure you never imagined, in your darkest despair, that you would be where you are now, helping others. You keep holding that light up, & fighting the good fight. I’ve run out of time, options, help, begging, etc.. I am disabled, & have no one else in my state I can call on for assistance or anything, save my elderly parents. They are salt of the Earth, have helped me so much. But they have too many issues I cannot abide, so I cannot live with them. They certainly can’t afford to take care of me in any real sense, & I am stuck, in all ways. My road is going to end soon. He has warped & wrapped things up so, that he’s willing to destroy his own finances & lose our home to bankruptcy to stick it to me. You keep doing your good words & works, & hopefully, that 2 or 3 or 4 am, when some woman (or man) is scrolling around the Web, trying just to distract herself from the demon in her life. And she sees a sentence, one that rings in her head like a gong. And she realizes, she is not crazy, she is not alone, her suffering has a name. Like mine did. Hopefully she will value the love she should have for herself before all others, & gets the F out of there, while there is still time for her. Thank you.

    This is a wonderful thing you are doing, I am one of the ones that found you in the middle of the night, trying to tell myself, that my life isnt normal, but I am.. and I do feel crazy and gets crazier by the day, but when your hands are tied they are tied.. I am getting so much strength from your blog that I hope this isnt my life forever… Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your words, and wisdom..

    I think that it is very very much needed for judges, lawyers and courts be REQUIRED to become knowledgeable about how a Narc can destroy the people around them. This is surely a huge issue in better understanding domestic abuse. REALLY BIG! And also, that it is not just one gender. No fault divorce has only fueled this in marriages. In my divorce, my (narc) wife told so many lies for so long that, as I had to defend/represent myself, I obtained a transcript of divorce and based my “case” on showing or revealing her lies in the next hearing and the judge actually acknowledged that I had clearly proved to him that she had been lying under oath- and that he did not care, instructing me to move forward. Judges are biased and seem more concerned with their court calendar than hearing truth. She’d committed forgery, bankfraud and more and he just did not care. How can a judge do that and be “Honorable”?
