Raising money to help our friend MK get back on her feet after escaping an abusive relationship. She left on August 17th, 2010 with nothing but some clothes, a few dollars and her cat. Help us get her started on her new life!

MK* is one of my dearest friends. She has been with me through illness and heartbreak, and I hope that I can be there for her today.

It broke my heart when I learned she was in an abusive relationship and needed desperately to escape. She left on August 17th, 2010, with some clothes, her cat and her life. I am putting this fundraiser together so that our mututal friends and supporters can help MK get back on her feet by giving her some extra cash to get started. She is currently looking for employment and needs a car, clothes, and basic necessities for herself and her cat. While she is staying with a friend, the possibility arises that she may need to run and hide again, and we are hoping to have all safety measures in place should anything like this arise. With your help, MK will be able to get her new life started safely and with the dignity she deserves.

Domestic violence can happen to anyone, we are saddened to learn that it has happened to a close friend and someone we love dearly. However, I've been heartened by the outpouring of support I've received from everyone I know the day MK and I began asking for help. I believe her life can take a wonderful turn now, and she can start over and live her dream. Please help me help her do this! Thank you so much!

*we are using her initials because making her identity known could be dangerous at this time. Thank you for understanding!
