My Story!

FACT:
1 in 3 girls are sexually abused before they turn 18 according to the FBI 2009 Report.

My Story

My name is Ruby L Taylor, MSW and I am the founder of The Priceless Campaign.

I was molested as a child and forced to stay silent. I was raised to suffer my torment in silence, and the adults I turned to for help told me the same thing my abuser did; that I was not to tell anyone about the abuse or suffer the consequences. Many teen girls have experienced the same shame and stigma about speaking out that I have.

The Priceless Campaign was created to break the silence and remove the stigma from victims of sexual abuse, domestic violence, mental health issues and grief and loss.

1 in 3 girls are sexually abused before they turn 18 according to the FBI 2009 Report.

Many girls are hurting and making decisions that are detrimental to their future because they are stuck in silence, but together, we can BREAK THAT SILENCE! http://bitly.com/X2SmoW

I only broke free of my prison of shame when I broke free from the silence and expressed all of the emotions I was forced to swallow all those years. All of the rage, shame, anger, hurt, pain, trauma and disappointment was set free and I vowed that not only would I speak out on my own behalf, but on behalf of other traumatized and victimized girls as well. When it comes to suffering sexual abuse, silence kills. Do not allow any more VICTIMS to SUFFER!

Of those girls assaulted, most will suffer from low self-esteem, shame,
depression, anxiety, alcoholism or drug addiction and eating disorders and
many will consider suicide. But together we can do something to stop the
silence and increase awareness.

We have 2 weeks and over 2 days to reach the goal and I believe we will.

Help us make The Priceless Campaign A Reality! Spread the Word and make a Pledge all amounts MATTER http://bitly.com/X2SmoW

With your PLEDGE you are showing the world that it is okay to speak out
against sexual abuse, domestic violence, mental health, and grief & loss.
There need be no more shame or embarrassment. http://bitly.com/X2SmoW

We can help thousands of girls who have suffered, and potentially help
thousands more avoid going through the pain of abuse. Only 10% of victims
of sexual abuse are assaulted by strangers.

That leaves 90% of girls being victimized by family members, friends or
acquaintances.

Let your voice be heard make a PLEDGE TODAY http://bitly.com/X2SmoW

NO MONEY WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR ACCOUNT UNTIL 12-23-12 AND THAT IS
ONLY IF WE REACH THE TIPPING POINT & BEYOND.

Please find one person or two people who is able to make a pledge and
please ask them to do so TODAY!

Help us make The Priceless Campaign A Reality! Spread the Word and make a
Pledge all amounts MATTER http://bitly.com/X2SmoW

THANK YOU SO MUCH!
