This is a matter of saving a life.
Words cannot truly emphasize enough how important this is.
Here's the short version:
I have this friend. And he recently introduced me to a situation that has been going on with another one of his friends. It's not good. REALLY not good. This girl has not only lost both her parents (within the last two years), but is also a current victim of physical and sexual abuse. She is completely alone where she is. No friends, family, no one. She is struggling with depression, cutting, addiction to prescription drugs, alcohol, and contemplating suicide.
Unfortunately, my friend is the only person she has to confide in.
We (my friend, I, and another close friend), have been trying to help her via the internet (AIM, e-mail).
Thing is this is getting bad. And fast. We need to intervene in a much more serious manner.
Recently, we came up with this idea.
We want to show her love. True love. To show her that her life matters. That there is hope. That we can help. That God loves her and has a plan for her life.
It might help you understand if you read the TWLOHA story (http://www.twloha.com/visi
Here's the deal: We need to raise money for one round trip plane ticket.
My friend is the only person she truly trusts.
We need to get him here. That is the only way she would be willing to come meet us here.
Once he is here, we would pick her up from o'hare.
For a week or more we are going to love her, care for her, get her out of the horrible situation she's in,
and possibly check her into rehab.
We need help though.
My friend has set up a craigslist ad.

If you can help at all, please send me a message or send him an e-mail.
OR email : firstname.lastname@example.org, him or I will respond with more info.
Thank you all for taking this seriously.
And thank you for any help you can provide.
Prayers are always needed and welcome.
