Please help our friend Joy


So before I begin, I’d like to say that this “gofundme” was not created with Joy’s  knowledge, but it is on her behalf, and it might be the only way for her to wipe the slate clean, and leave her past behind her, once and for all. 

Joy is one of the most passionate, loving, and caring women that I have ever met. Joy has spent a number of years here in Charleston where she has changed tremendously, she is a spiritual women, who loves unconditionally, she gives whatever she can in time, love and commitment. Joy is a survivor, many people do not understand struggle the way she does, and despite all of that she still smiles, she’s always upbeat, she laughs no matter what, and her positive energy is infectious. 

Meeting Joy you would never know that for the past 4 years she has been dealing with the wreckage of an ex boyfriend, who was determined to ruin her life, which he has done successfully through Georgia’s legal system. 

Due to this, Joy has some lingering financial legal matters that need to be addressed in the next seven days, or all of her efforts will have been wasted due to the lil amount she owes when she’s already paid so much in money, stress, happiness, and not to mention her ability to move past this. What Joy is currently go through has left her in a position of self doubt, and with out any options. 

“these past legal issues have led to her owing 1600 in 7 days or she will have to face incarceration in Ga”

I know everyone is struggling, but if there is anyway that you can give a dollar or five or whatever, you would be helping change the life of one amazing person who deserves a better future, than that of the past she’s had to endure. Joy would never ask anyone to help her like this, but she would be beyond grateful.
