Supporting Child Abuse Survivors in Court

Campaign Created by: A Better Way/Hope Anne Dueck

The funds from this campaign will be received by A Better Way Education and Support.

Goal: USD $7,000
Raised: USD $ 6,510

A Better Way has provided experienced, caring support to survivors of child abuse in court in multiple states over the last few years. Normally, advocates travel on their own funds. However, because the survivors who have asked us to be there to support them during the trial, live in the far North of Canada, and the expected length of the trial due to the many victims and the serious charges, advocates need help with the funding to be able to provide support. Airfare, car rental, lodging and food add up quickly with an expected 10 to 11 days required. Advocates are willing to donate their time and energy for this, but need help with their actual expenses.

In a courtroom that is expected to be packed with supporters for the defendant, and very little support for the survivors, your tax deductible donations to A Better Way can make a real difference for the survivors to be able to feel seen, heard and valued!

A generous donor has offered to match, dollar for dollar, all donations up to $1,000 received in the first 48 hours of this campaign! So your $5, $10 or more will be DOUBLED--up to $1,000.

Additionally, if you donate $150 or more, Justin Woodbury, the author of "Sheltered But Not Protected" will send you a copy of his book.

Thank you for caring for these survivors of childhood abuse!

Dear Lovely People who have been caring about the survivors in Canada:

We are pleased to inform you that as of today, Sunday 10/30/2022, we have only $1,955 left to raise to reach our goal of $7,000 (!) This is because in addition to the funds which show on the fundraiser total, we also have an additional $500 that was donated via check.

Your continued prayers, shares and support mean the world to these survivors and us as we seek to make this important step happen.
