I am participating in BootCamp for Shelter from the Storm to raise money in support of local shelters and programs that help women rebuild their lives. I’m hoping that you’ll join us April 30th for one hour. You can join our team, start your own team, or go in as an individual by following this link.
Letty just joined our team, and I wanted to share her story with you – what an inspiration!
This event strikes close to home for me as an abuse victim myself that got both myself and my child out of the situation. I know it’s hard and I know what its like to have friends and family utter behind my back “why doesn’t she just get out?” but its not that simple and I know that. It took in my situation, the police showing up at my door on a Monday morning telling me they were escorting me down to the courthouse to press charges, they had responded the night before. I went with them SHAKING but the one held my hand the whole time. Shortly after, I was out of the relationship, terrified because I was now a single mother with no income but I got through it. I have put myself through school to make a better life for myself and my son.
If you or anyone you know is in this situation all I can say(in my opinion as an abuse victim) please just be there to support them for as long as they are in that relationship and when they get out, let them cry as long and as hard as they want. It’s what my friends did for me!
Each minute of time during the BootCamp is worth $5. How many minutes will you sponsor?
Thank you for taking the time to read my story and let band together and help more women and children just like me realize that they can get out and they CAN make it!!!
