We're Fleeing Domestic Violence & Need Help Affording Movers URGENTLY Please!!!

My Story:

I am a wonderful, single mother of a beautiful 3-year-old daughter. My daughter loves to play dress up, do her nails, and do other girly activities. She also has a rough side to her and likes to do outdoor activities like riding her bike or scooter and going to the park. I work full-time as a scheduler, and I enjoy reading, listening to music, and spending time with my daughter of course. I'm very proud to be her mother, and she's my entire world.

Me and my daughter recently escaped an abusive and violent situation involving her father. I have been separated from him for two years now, and despite making multiple police reports, the threats and attempts at violence continue. My daughter and I are living in constant fear of him, so I have decided that it's best for my daughter and I to move out of state. However, I live paycheck to paycheck, so making this move happen is going to be really difficult for me to afford. For the sake of our safety though, I'm humbly asking for assistance with the moving expenses we have.

We're having difficulties with affording the mover's fee, which we need to pay in order to get this move underway as soon as possible. I'm asking for help because I know that time is of the essence for us. We're in a scary and desperate situation, but your generosity would allow us to find safe passage to a new place where we can finally live our lives free from fear. I cannot begin to thank you all enough for this assistance, and I promise to pay this forward to another family in need when I'm able.
