One of the items on my to-do list today is to call the head of the Guidance Department at a local high school. We’re in the initial stages of planning the Lovefraud program for high school students about sociopaths, bullying and dating violence.
I just saw the following post by the Lovefraud reader, Seeing Clearly:
Folks…I heard a comment on the John Tess radio show that sent chills down my spine. He was talking about teens, and especially girls who are now in or have been in abusive or controlling relationships and thought it is NORMAL. Scary..we need to be diligent and stop (nip it in the bud) this. As a mentor of mine use to say there comes a time when you draw a line in the sand—you’re either in or out. Decision time has come. Donna I will send you a check for up to $1000.00, (one thousand dollars) of matching funds from readers that will contribute for the next 48 hours. Post where the funds should be sent. This is our time and place to make a difference. The marathon starts now. Let’s ROLL and keep on ROLLING for ourselves and our daughters and sons who should not have to endure any of this crap. I have searched for a reason this happened to me because I do believe that everything happens for a reason. Perhaps it finding this site and this cause. Let us all work together to expose these theives of our time, love, emotions and money. I’m serious about this, I’m mad as h— and I’m not taking it no more. See you at the finish line. I am Seeing Clearly Now.
You can see the post yourself — it is on the Please join the movement thread, dated Wednesday, 10 November 2010 @ 8:02 a.m.
I am extremely grateful for this reader’s generosity. There will be expenses in developing this program, and any support will help a lot.
If you’d like to help support Lovefraud in this effort, please send a pledge to me at email@example.com in the next 48 hours. (I trust that Seeing Clearly is willing to start the countdown from the time of this announcement.) Put “Education Program Challenge” in the subject line. Later, we’ll send a PayPal invoice, or you can contribute by check or credit card. All money raised will be earmarked for the Lovefraud high school education program.
This is wonderful. I am thrilled. Thank you so much.
