There is a wonderful girl I met named Maia.
Maia is 23 years old and she has a good talent for art. She is a bit naïve, but kind hearted and an overall sweet person.
Maia is being abused.
Her mother has been belittling her, making her feel hopeless, afraid, useless, even suicidal at times. And worse still, she is trying to keep Maia from leaving while using emotional blackmail against her to frighten her in to staying and doing everything she is told.
Nearly every single day she is constantly hounded, insulted, lied to, and manipulated. I and many other people have heard this live, as Maia has been secretly recording the things her mother has been saying to her and some of us have the misfortune of hearing more of this abuse on sykpe audio or livestreams.
Recently, many kind people have donated to help Maia get out of her situation, and she finally has enough to make the first step.
But as abuse goes, her mother, despite constantly telling her she’s useless and doesn’t “deserve” to live in that household, is trying to keep her hostage in her own home. What’s worse is, the original plan that she had looks like it might not be as stable as we hoped.
So I am asking now that people PLEASE spread this out, and if anyone in Texas (More specifically the Dallas area) would be willing to give Maia a safe place to stay until she can manage a more stable plan, it would be forever appreciated. She needs a place to go by mid-December and she only needs to stay perhaps 3 months at most until things can be settled properly. It likely wont be that long though, but this is just until she can find a better location.
What can be offered in return would be up to 200-300$ per month that she can lend for rent, and she can also offer her artwork as payment if necessary. (I am currently setting up to move myself, but once I have moved I will be willing to provide a bit of extra money for her each month if she needs it)
If you can help Maia in any way, please contact http://tardispony.tumblr.com/
I know this is a big deal, and I know it’s sudden. But I also know that in this fandom, I have seen a lot of miracles happen and I want more than anything to see this one happen.
Hell, maybe I’ll even find a reason to like Christmas this year.
(Maia is a beautiful, talented, kind girl, and the things she’s experienced makes my heart reach out for her. If any of my followers can help her in any way, please do.)
