Aid For Abby

August 21, 2012


Good evening everyone!

I would like to make you all aware of a cause I have been following for a while now. There is a family living in the US who have had a very tough time. The mother is on disability and can not work outside of the home, and this past May she lost her partner. Her partner had welcomed her and her family into their home, and helped them with expenses, emotional support, and more. This woman (Benita), has a teenage son as well as a younger daughter named Abby, who has autism and OCD.

When her partner passed away, life became even tougher for the family and they are now in the process of losing their home. If you know someone with autism, or any other kind of mental disorder, you know that daily life can be very difficult, and change is not handled well. It hurts both Abby and her family. Benita is raising money through selling Abby’s artwork (she loves art), as well as home made dog biscuits (the family has 4 animals, including Abby’s therapy dog). She is also raising money through the website indiegogo. She is trying to raise $9000 for a down payment of the home they are residing in, which was her partner’s home. If she can raise the money for the home, she will be able to keep some stability in Abby’s life, and hopefully Abby can continue to make progress with her autism.

If you could all help her out in some way, she would really appreciate it, as would I. I don’t personally know this family, but I can’t stand to hear about people (or animals) suffering. Please check out the links below, share them with your loved ones, and donate if you can. Abby and Benita will be thankful. Every little bit helps.

      It’s no problem, I just looked at your page and that’s a very generous thing for you to do, trying to cover that dog’s vet bills. I am not in the position to help you out financially, but I will share your page. I hope that will help. Thanks for looking at Aid For Abby and please share the page and story.
