Show your support for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford by Giving to this GoFundMe.
Dr. Blasey Ford bravely stepped up when she heard that Brett Kavanaugh had made the short list for the Supreme Court of the United States.
She was terrified, but determined to do her civic duty.
She did the right thing. She suffered for it.
You can help her by donating to a GoFundMe set up in her name. It covers the costs involved with safeguarding her and her family during this process.
On October 3, 2018, she posted the following update to the page:
“I cannot express how grateful I am for the outpouring of support and generosity that we have received through this GoFundMe account. I believed and still believe that it was my civic duty to come forward, but this is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do, much harder even than I thought it would be. And not just for me, but for my husband and our sons, for my relatives who still live in the Washington area, and the friends who have stood up on my behalf.
I feel like all of you who have made a contribution are on this journey with me, which is very heartening. And some journey it has been and continues to be. We have already had to move four times, our movements are limited even with security, and the threats are ongoing. Thanks to you, I am able to feel safe, my family can be together, and my children can continue to go to school.
The costs for security, housing, transportation and other related expenses are much higher than we anticipated and they do not show signs of letting up. Funds received via this account will be used to help us pay for these mounting expenses.
Please know how much we appreciate your moral support and your contribution,
As of October 6, 2018, it had far exceeded its $150,000 goal, pulling in more than $570,000.
