Help Change a Single Black Mother’s Life
Yesterday, we reblogged this post of Black mothers having to work harder because if their children is not upkept, they can have their mothering questioned. And we are modeling this blog into a general platform to talk about the daily struggles of American PoC.
However, we find it more effective if we show you a live case. So, with that in mind…
Meet Ani Lacy. She’s what people would call an “unorthodox mother”. She’s a single stay at home mom to “one amazing little boy on the autism spectrum.” With her son having autism, she decided that it would be best to not have her son attend public school, opting to school him herself. Recently, Ani decided that because of problems with keeping an apartment, she would instead get an RV and school her child via road trips. Sounds like an adventurous thing to do. However, her life have been complicated a bit.
A few weeks ago, she’s been getting troubled by local authorities. It’s best if she explained it to you directly:
The next video below is of her recording the conversation between her and Child Protective services.
Can you imagine being harassed by child protection services? Can you also imagine not being able to do anything about it because the person that reported you is protected under the law? And whatever Child Protection catches Ani in a spot that could potentially have her child taken away?
We would like to help out this woman get out of her current situation. Here’s how you can help.
Donate whatever you can afford to her gofund page. Her endgame goal is $2.9K.
Also, reblog this post and if you like, add your two cents to this story. Her blog is http://thesimpleboxcar.blogspot.com/ If you can’t donate via her gofund page, please use her paypal link on her blog.
Let’s make her life a little easier.
P.S. - She have a shop on Esty and have made money via sales there. However, it’s down at the moment, maybe to focus on relocation.
