What can $3 do?
The last month my fellow plaintiffs and I have been raising funds for our continued court battle with our former cult leader. Even though we walked away from the lawsuit in 2018, he decided he wanted revenge and sought sanctions against us. The battle continues as he is now appealing the ruling the judge made earlier this year that the plaintiffs were “highly credible” and that our lawsuit was valid. The appellate hearing is scheduled for January 23, 2020.
The appeal process is exhausting, but do you know what really warmed my heart this week? As we have been watching the donations pour in, we have noticed that most of them were $5, $10, and $20 donations. Just tiny amounts from people that barely had any wiggle room in their budget. Then one person gave $3. That $3 may not sounds like a lot, but it, and the other “tiny” amounts mean the world to me. It means that I, and my fellow warriors mean something. It means this battle we must endure means something. It means we are not alone in this fight; This fight is worth it and we have an army of people fighting along side us through prayers and pennies.
Three dollars says, “I believe in you and I believe in justice. Thank you for fighting on behalf of all victims.”
So to all that have donated to the plaintiffs in the Bill Gothard lawsuit, I say “Thank you!! Your support gives me strength and makes every day of fighting worth it.” ?
