Kari's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped me share my inspirational story with adult surivors of child abuse with bestselling book and podcasts.

Kari's story

Despite all odds, I have succeeded in finding joy in life. I am a motivational speaker, author and one woman show creator and performer. My birth mother left me with social services to be placed in foster care when i was three days old. I was in the process of being adopted by a family when I was nine months old. While with this family, the mother lost her temper with me, shaking me and hit my head causing fluid to build up around my brain. As a result I am now legally blind I then went back into loving foster homes until I was four which is when I was adopted into my second abusive home. This journey has not been easy but it has provided deep, profound transformation for me. This journey has made me determined to make sure that I do what I can to make sure no other child experiences abuse in the future. As I share my message of overcoming and being resilient I believe that other lives as well can be transformed.
