100 People @ $20 brings them home

My daughter is in Egypt and has been for the past several years in an abusive relationship.  She has been torn down mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually by her husband and this 'church' that got them to move there (the Elder of the church does not live there).  Her husband has separated her from family, friends or anyone that could help her see this is not a normal relationship.  He is in complete control over her (or so he thinks).  My goal is to get her and the kids out of there safely and back home with family and friends that love her and the children.
This is what she posted today:

Okay, so I posted a post a few days ago saying I have so much to say.... but I was unsure how to say it and how it will be perceived or received...
A couple of years ago, I came across this post that had a BUNCH of different women posting something about abuse they experience.
It was very enlightening to me. I don't know the post or how far it's gone from the time I saw it. But basically, the title was, "He doesn't hit me, but...." then they continue on... I couldn't just type one... But, this thread helped me realize that I have been abused... So, I wrote it down... and this is it...
