Foundations have to start somewhere


I am helping my friend kickstart her foundation fundraiser. They are trying to gather donations for a retreat center. They are aware this will take years to open the doors but you have to start somewhere.

This organization has helped me understand what cults are like and what happens to women who are trying to leave certain religious groups.

It has been eye opening hearing stories. Please donate and pass the links around.

  1. Sophia, I and my fellow friends and survivors of abuse, are the ones working on this. Feel free to email me at the email Sam posted with any questions. I would like to clarify that this is a work in progress. We have big dreams we wish to reach in a very peaceful and small way.

  2. Does their foundation have a website (not a gofundme page) so I can read more about them? I want to donate but only if it is a legit foundation.
