One week ago a 15-year old Freshmen girl was harmed by a group of boys who posted the crime on Facebook Live.  Just as troubling, the girl and her family have received numerous threats, phone calls, and even had people come to the house to further insult the situation.  I am asking the broader communtiy from Chicago and around the world to make a donation to help this family move and START OVER.  The fund will help them pay for living expenses in another location and begin the process of healing and hope.  If the campaign reaches $75,000, they will be able to purchase their own home.  Any gift and any prayers are greatly appreciated.  Together we can make a difference!

Together, the Chicago community has raised almost $10,000 to support the family of the 15-year old girl who made news for being the victim of a crime live on Facebook. It is very important for us to show this girl and her family that they are loved and supported by the community of North Lawndale.

We have contacted the family and they are very appreciative to all of you who have prayed for and donated to them. Their desire is to relocate to a new community and begin the process of starting over. You gifts are so important in this effort. Thank you.

Once the family has finalized their plan, I (Michael Trout) will turn the funds over to help them with their expenses and transition.

Again thank you for participating in this outpouring of love and support. Chicago is a richer city because of people like you!
