To raise money for a close friend & her two young kids, who has just come out of an abusive relationship & lost everything.

Main image

I am looking to raise some money for a close friend of mine who has been through a abusive hellish time in this last year, so she can make a new start & re-build her life back to some form of normality for her & her two young kids. At this point in time, she has no home, no car & very little money to survive on. I have helped her as much as I can, but that has only gotten her so far.

Her kids have been temporarily taken off her in what can only be described as a disgraceful act that was organised while she was in hospital recently with her sick baby & she was literally blindsided by people she trusted & is currently going through the courts with her lawyer to get them back.

She was pregnant & in love & thought she had finally found someone who would be good to her as a partner & a good father to their baby & her young child, but she was so very wrong & has managed to escape from that environment now, but at a price, the temporary loss of her kids.

As cliche as it sounds, I would love nothing more than for this to get 10,000 donations of $1, or 5,000 donations of $2, as I was hoping to raise around $10,000, just so she can re-locate back to Auckland & get her young family into a decent rental home, buy some basic furniture & a reliable/affordable car. Any money left over after that will go towards a school uniform & all that comes with putting a child back into primary school & daycare fees for her youngest child.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, any donation amount is greatly appreciated.

Yvonne Borich's involvement (page creator)

My friend & I flatted together for 7 & a half years. Over the years we lived together, I have become very close to her & her kids & just want to help her in any way I can to put her back on track to living a safe & happy life.

Use of funds

The money will be spent on re-locating back to Auckland to find a rental home for her & the kids, any basic furniture they may need, buying a reliable/affordable car, setting up her eldest child at primary school with uniform, shoes etc.
