My Story

Hey friends!

Hope today finds you all well! As I’m sure some of you have already read in your notification box, today is my birthday. So today I have a favor to ask. In lieu of happy birthdays or gifts, I’m asking for you to give a donation to Strength United; a non profit organization that aids survivors of sexual assault, rape, domestic violence and provides a range of amazing services that help both the individual and community.

Folks, this is an incredible organization, and I have a personal connections to it. I volunteered with this non-profit for one year as an advocate in which I worked directly with survivors and the people who were there to help them. In addition to volunteer advocates, there to lend any emotional support and info they can, this non-profit also provides:

  • 24/7 on call nurses and immediate crisis response

  • Family Justice Center; a multi-agency center where counselors, LAPD sexual assault detectives, forensics nurses, legal experts and advocates work together to respond

  • Free counseling

  • Adoption for abused children

  • Education and prevention community programs

Strength United aids people in what is in some cases their greatest hour of need. Children, teenagers and adults are all helped at this center and treated with both compassion and thoroughness that is desperately needed during their difficult times.

I’ve posted with this a sheet that shows what amount helps the center to give back to survivors. I can guarantee you, wether you give $20, $10, $5 or $1, your contribution is going to go directly to helping survivors who come to this organization.

I know this has been a difficult year for many people. I remember a lot of difficult moments and feelings I saw and experienced at my time with Strength United. But despite the difficulty of those stories, the one thing I can always say is at this organization you see the BEST of humanity come together. You see total strangers come to the aid of someone who needs help, and you see the strength of these survivors despite their difficult and sometimes terrifying circumstances. Strength that makes YOU want to be stronger.

Thank you for listening folks, I really appreciate it!

Love, 

Maria
