Support a Survivor

“The rain begins with a single drop.”

~Manal al-Sharif  

You can make a difference! 

One of the best ways to support an abuse survivor is to help them thrive in their business endeavors. You can do that by purchasing gifts and services from business you know are owned and operated by survivors.

How do you find those businesses? 

Well I’ve created this awesome list! 

There’s everything from website design/development to personalized wedding stationary. 

Enjoy shopping and thank you for joining the fight against abuse!

As the founder of Max Gets Curious, I write and speak about how choosing courageous curiosity in our conversations, mental health, and personal growth can help us change our minds and lives. Though I was born and raised in a fundamentalist Christian community, curiosity has led me to come out, recover from anxiety that left me mute, reinvent my biracial identity, and create a life of joyous exploration. Today, I teach others to seek life beyond suppression and echo chambers with strategies and stories that harness curiosity’s power.

My name is Ally Yoder, and I am a junior undergraduate studying Psychology and Neuroscience and attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I advocate for mental health awareness as well as sexual assault/violence/abuse. I also enjoy photography and poetry, and recently self published my first book, “Set Me Free”, a poetic memoir about overcoming childhood abuse.

The S.C.A.R. Foundation is a non-profit organization created to spread awareness and provide a voice for survivors of childhood sexual abuse. S.C.A.R. stands for Support, Care, Advocate, & Reclaim. Today, many adult survivors still face mental health related issues and I want to express the importance for these individuals to find the help they deserve.

I am a survivor of being abused by a girl older than me when I was a child. Though it has taken me 30+ years to conquer my problems from that, I have finally become proud of the woman and mother I am today! I am a single mama, proud of my struggles and accomplishments and most of all proud of my perfect little human. My goal in life is to provide my son a better life/childhood than I had, which I am accomplishing though my business!
