Escape From Portland(OR)

$4,300 goal

Campaign created 9 months ago
The Category Travel & Adventure really only pertains to the Travel part as this adventure has come to an end. I'm a pretty well rounded person. Adventourous more than most. But with recent events in Portland, OR, I feel as though it is important for me to return home to Atlanta,GA as soon as possible. I fear for my life. What brought me here was a relationship that went sour. I gave the city a chance, even found a new career. Yet to still find that now this city isn't as "progessive" as they say it is. With the recent stabbing from a white supremisists, I've resulted to staying in doors and not wanting to be amonst the city that much at all or ever. The vibe here, for me, a southern girl, is no vibe at all. It's almost a death trap in my opinion. I really need to get out of here. I am seeking $4,300 to end my lease early, relocate back home to Atlanta, GA and continue to thive in the place that raised me.

I would use $2,500 to pay the remainder of my lease to the end of August.
I would use the remaining $1800 for a deposit and first month's rent towards my new apartment in Atlanta, GA.

As a Black woman living in Portland, not from here, I almost have a feeling of aniexty or PTSD whenever I leave the house. I'm always wearing shades and avoiding eye contact out here. I'm literally scared for my life. I'm saving on my own as well to return home, but I thought it would be a good idea to see if there are any helping hearts out there that understand what it feels like to want to go home but can't due to other responsibilites.
I do have a job that allows me to work remoetly, therefore, I would be able to up keep the apartment and be able to continue to live a full safe life.

Those who benefit are individuals anywhere. I can host a dinner in your honor in Atlanta, GA, all expenses paid for. You will also receive a one of a kind handmade T-shirt and Calendar! It means a lot to me that anyone is even willing to hear me out. I lost my mom 11 years ago..I left Atlanta and have been copping ever since. I was 24 when I lost her..and now I am ready to come home. She raised me as a single woman. And Atlanta was our playground. So you can understand why it was hard to stick around after I lost her. Now that I've traveled, created a career and dealt with it..I've found myself way out on the other side of the US and I just want to go home. =( 

Thanks for listening & donating.
