I decided to start this foundation because I wanted to help people affected by sexual and domestic violence. As time went on and I started talking to more people about what I was doing I realized that so many victims of these crimes have committed or considered suicide, this made me see that I wanted to reach even further to help.
As a survivor of childhood sexual assault, I found comfort in writing over the years. So many times I couldn't truly express vocally how I was feeling to people because I simply didn't know how to so I turned to a journal. I wanted to find a way to give back in someway. . . I wanted to share how I had found comfort in some of my hardest times, so I decided to start a journal donation charity.
My goal is to collect blank journals but to have the giver write a small note of inspiration in the opening cover page to whomever the recipient may be. Please know that all journals will be checked for sensitivity reasons before going to any crisis centers.
I will personally sign and date with the year of all those that pass my sensitivity check.
These journals don't just help victims but those around victims such as family, friends, or crisis center volunteers. These journals are for anyone whom may be affected by sexual violence, domestic violence, and suicide.
