Recently, Jessie Pridemore wrote an article regarding being the victim of sexual assault by an unnamed voice actor (who later outed themselves) and sexual harassment and physical violence at the hands of another. Since then, she has continued suffering harassment at every corner of the internet and been threatened with legal action simply for telling the truth in an attempt to protect others.
Among all of that, Jessie's life still carried on. Her landlord has done many chaotic and questionably illegal things in her stay at her current apartment making it an unsafe, stressful environment. Her chronic health issues limit the work she can take and her mental and emotional state are compromised. All among the vicious backlash she has received.
With gentle persuading and discussion she agreed to let some friends make this for her. The initial intent for this money is to protect her if she is targeted by a lawsuit. The secondary intention for this money is to help her find a better apartment so she can take care of herself without the constant threat of eviction.
Jessie's nature is to give everything she has in excess to help others and I know it was a hard choice to let us do this for her, and I know she never would have done this for herself without our intervention. Jessie is an inspiration in the cosplay community. Her work and photography have provided inspiration to so many for so long. If you cannot donate monetarily at this time, please repost if possible.
