How far is too far when helping a still traumatized teen child abuse survivor? How far is too far in reaching out to catch a young man aging out of foster care that is not prepared to care for himself? We have heard the cliché statements like “Pay it Forward” and, “What Would Jesus Do?” Constant trauma from severe abuse was never addressed and they are years behind in school. We ask, how does an 18 year old get a job and begin caring for themselves alone under such emotional strain? They don’t… not without direct long term help.
So, in the spirit of our UnChained Project motto No Survivor Stands Alone, we are bringing this young man here to our home in Florida. Bringing them from the west coast of the U.S., roughly 3,000 miles away. We need your help and here's how!
Two ways to change a life... but must act now!
Option #1) Limited edition UnChained Project - “No Survivor Stands Alone” T-Shirt
Red or black, men’s or women’s t-shirt only $20. Hoodie in black only $30.
Shipping is under $4 within the U.S.
We must get commitments for a combination 75 shirts and hoodies before the crowdfunded shirt offer from TeeSpring ends on September 8. When 75 is reached orders can be processed. If we don’t reach 75 in three weeks then nothing ships and nobody pays. But when we sell many more than that this young person gets their trip and we get funding to help many
Ark of Hope for Children’s UnChained Project is moving all of that to the forefront. As we are asking people to step up in their communities for survivors of child abuse, child trafficking and bullying, we are making a large step of our own. A young man Blair Corbett has been mentoring online for quite some time is living the first part of this post. Aging out of the foster care system that failed him. We can all help deal with the ignored original traum's and tutor the years of missing education so he can get his GED. We NEED your help.
This is a Win-Win! Your purchase helps those suffering from abuse by directly supporting our programs. And you wearing the shirt shows you as a torch bearer for survivors that live in your area of the world. All initial proceeds help get this deserving young man to Ark of Hope where we can directly help with care, mentoring, tutoring and professional services to allow him a successful independent adulthood. The balance of funds go to our support programs like Removing Chains our online live chat support site helping victims of child abuse, child trafficking and bullying daily worldwide.
Running through September 24, 2013. Sponsored by Ryot News and CrowdRise.com
Donations through that 5 week campaign can help us win many thousands of bonus dollars. We can win from $25,000 to $75,000 more if we are in the top three fundraisers! And since we directly support at risk abused youth that should be easy, right? But you can win big too. Your donation enters you to win all access VIP tickets to see Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Stevie Wonder & Kings of Leon live in Central Park, NYC on September 28th!
These proceeds still help get this young man complete his journey here. Funds will allow founder Blair Corbett to fly to the west coast of the U.S. and accompany him back to Florida. The balance of this large fundraiser event then support our Removing Chains live cat abuse survivor support and UnChained Project localized national support for survivors programs. All funds help young and old survivors of all abuses, including bullying, ttrafficking, and more, get support through our Removing Chains site.
