Moving For Safety

Moving For Safety

From Amanda Sullivan

I'm raising money to help cover the costs of moving from Minnesota to Missouri for me and my toddler. We have been victims of domestic abuse and are fleeing from a dangerous situation with our therapy cats.

My 2 year old son and I have suffered from domestic abuse from a drug abuser and now, we are asking for help to get us away. We are currently stuck in Duluth, MN and needing housing elsewhere. We have family and friends where we are going, so we will be able to start over with support from them as we start a new chapter in our lives.

My son was almost killed by my ex due to his extreme drug abuse with meth. It happened while I was working overnights, and I came home to my son on the floor, terrified and face swollen. I had to quit my full time job to fight for custody back after the county stepped in. I had tried to save money from taxes, but due to safety reasons, a good chunk of that went to using cabs to go for grocery runs so we would not have to run into that monster with the bus. Not to mention, there were also the usual expenses of clothes, laundry, diapers, etc. The bit of assistance I am given only stretches so far.

This money will go strictly to moving expenses (trailer, gas, ect.) along with housing expenses (rent, deposit, utilities) and anything left would be used on things we would need, like used furniture, diapers, and so on.

So, I ask of you to please help us. If you can't donate, then please at least share to spread the word. My son deserves a better future than being stuck in the apartment where we were both smacked around and belittled. Please, help us get our new chapter started, somewhere safe and full of support.
