Survivor of Hate Crime Needs Help
If you'd rather donate through PayPal, visit my website and the button is at the bottom of the page.
Here are the main points. I was a good and dedicated teacher, who, as the result of a hate crime, lost my job and possibly ended my career. I need some extra finances in order to be able to continue with daily living expenses, rent, groceries, gas, utilities, and legal fees.
So, to answer your question; I'm hoping for sooner rather than later, but that involves a lot of variables to complicate it for right now.
I see nothing misleading at all in the statement "Survivor of Hate Crime Needs Help." Hate crimes do not have to involve physical violence. Just as much harm can be done with not even a single drop of blood being lost. To suggest that Mr. Bray isn't a "real survivor" is nothing short of crass.
Nathan Poe, you're right; this was not a violent crime. However, it has been emotionally and financially devastating. Luckily, Burke, the guy in the story from the link you posted, has been in contact with me personally and helping me out more than I ever could have imagined. So even though I wasn't sent to a hospital and don't have scar marks, this was still a crime committed out of hate; it's the motivation behind the action which determines its category, not its outcome.
Good afternoon, what happened in this situation is a classic case of what the media likes to label as "revenge porn" which is the distribution of nude/sexualized images/videos of a person without their consent. Please contact your local authorities and explain to them that someone hacked your account which is a federal crime and that you have been the victim of revenge porn which is a misdemeanor in your state. If they do not take you seriously seek other avenues for justice. Google "revenge porn Supreme Court". If you get a conviction you can take the person to court and sue them. We live in a world where cameras are everywhere. Just because you decided to be intimate in front of one does not make you stupid, gross, or immoral. You're a person and whoever did this was attempting to dehumanize you and humiliate you. These kind of crimes are the new age rape. Please don't let them win. Please become part of the fight to change the legislation. Best wishes -Bethany
Do you expect to venture out into the working world sooner........or later?
i am sorry to hear of this crime committed against you. i hope you will continue to pursue the criminal and get justice against them. i am shocked you lost your job over something you did not do. Its sad some of this country doesn't keep up with the rest. i applaud you raising extra funds for those causes. and to Matthew below: you're a lousy human being
Preventing this man from making and distributing more of his deviant videos to kids is why authority spoke against his lifestyle choice.
Glad to help Brian! Wishing you all the love my fellow Arkansan! Stay strong. Chin up. It will get better. We are rooting for you! Lee

Seems misleading to refer to your story this way. Here's a real survivor of an actual hate crime: http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Hate-Crime-Survivor-It-Gets-Better-366205421.html
I am so sorry! I came across your story through logo. I wish you all the best buddy.
Hey! I cannot afford to make a donation, but have you tried to make money by trying other things such as VO Genesis, Inboxdollars, as well as other websites to try to make money online? Thanks. Hope this help :D
