(TW: Domestic Violence)
I’ve never made a post like this before. But I’ve seen the tumblr community do amazing things, and I’m hoping you can help.
My friend, Georgina, had a 30-year-old sister named Penelope who was killed on May 9th as a result of domestic violence. Penelope had three beautiful girls, all under the age of 8, who are now left without a mother and with a father on the run.
The plan is for the girls to be placed in the custody of their grandparents, but the family is in desperate need of funds to make this happen. Friends are coordinating a fundraiser to cover the funeral expenses and moving/ongoing transportation costs. The goal is $20,000, and if anything is raised beyond that, it will go toward the substantial expense of rearing three young girls.
Any amount you are able to contribute would be a big help to these little girls and this woman’s stunned, grieving family.
If you aren’t able to donate, please consider a signal boost. Thank you.
1. Good Victims only have one bad relationship ever, because they learn from their mistakes.
2. Good Victims always cut their abusers/rapists out of their lives immediately, no matter how high the cost or the dangers involved.
3. Good Victims are never angry, they do not lash out, they do not…

Excuse me while I sit here, crying at the dining room table. Please talk about this stuff, people. You are worth the world and no one deserves to be treated any less.
Even if we’ve never met, even if we don’t know each other, please don’t hesitate to message me. I’ll always have an open ear and heart.
