A desperate plea for help for my friend and her children 

Please help me to raise money for my close friend who's desperately trying to leave a deeply toxic and abusive environment with her two small and adorable children that don't deserve any of this shit. She's already been made homeless twice recently. Things are fully beyond breaking point and the official channels for support, though they've tried, are repeatedly failing her family in dangerous ways. (1/5)

My own resources available to help to support her are running dry. Due to isolation she has no friends or family to rely on apart from myself and her cousins so the time has come that we need to ask for your help too, so that she can escape and set new foundations from literally nothing on which to raise her family. (2/5)

This money will be used to buy access to emergency accommodation next time she needs it as we've now ran out of money and she's living out of her overdraft, I'll be forwarding it straight over to her bank account. (3/5)

It's taken me a while to convince her that this needs to be done, she's very fragile right now and finding it difficult and overwhelming to accept help from strangers for something so delicate and private but she's finally allowed me to try this as she desperately needs it. (4/5)

I wouldn't be asking if this wasn't absolutely critical for her or her kids. DM me for the PayPal link or bank details (so I don't dox myself in public), literally anything at all will be a massive help right now. (This is where my energy has been recently btw, if you were wondering why I've gone quiet) (5/5)

Your kindness has given her the confidence to seek a refuge further away from where she is (where no refuge is available) as you've given her the means to support her family more independently. She's now able to escape her abusive ex for the final time and it's all down to you. She will have a small corner of the world to breathe while she works towards escaping homelessness. You all did that, I love you and can't thank you enough ❀️

Update: she's now staying at a refuge with her children and has never been happier to have the bed of a previous bed wetter! Any additional money coming in will be used to help her to rebuild her life and make things as unscary as possible for her children. Again, thank you so much for your help, she couldn't have got this far without you!

Thanks again to everyone that helped my friend during her time living in a refuge and through homelessness with her two children, she's been incredible in navigating this situation as well as she has. She's amazing, and so are you. 1/

She will have a house from the 18th to move into and has visited. I'm glad you can't smell this video. It's bleak and disgusting and she has no resources left to make this a safe place to look after her children. The council have said they will "tidy" it but I very much doubt that will make it habitable by the 18th and sadly the money I managed to raise for her during her refuge stay has just about ran dry. 2/

Please DM me for my PayPal details so I can raise funds to forward cross to her to fix the worse of it and buy carpets, paint, furniture etc because once again she's been abandoned and left on her own with a whole heap of heartbreaking and scary bullshit, and once again I don't want that to be the case. 3/3

We're going to put some creepy little dolls in a scene under the manky rotting floorboards before covering them up and pretending they're not there to feel better about them, so there is that I suppose

Update: I've seen more photos and some of the walls are basically just mould, between that and the rotten floorboards this is going to be expensive. 1/2

@Shrigglepuss It's fucking criminal, the housing poor people are expected to live in in this country.
