Days after sharing her side of the story as to what led up to her losing custody of her one-year-old daughter, Cai Bella Bridges, Tamika Fuller has launched a GoFundMe campaign to help finance her fight to get her baby back.
Fuller set up the “Bring Tink Home” campaign on April 10 and she’s seeking $7,000. At the time of this post, 35 people had donated a total of $1,005.
Tamika says the funds will go towards setting up her foundation to help other mothers in need, as well as finance her fight to regain custody of her daughter.
In a new Instagram post, Tamika Fuller thanked everyone for their support and donations. She also revealed the judge denied her motion for a new trial.
Thank you so much for all your kind words of love support and encouragement. It has really helped me get through some tough times. To those that have already donated from the bottom of my heart I thank you all. You are all very much appreciated. To those who are looking for more information please read below.
The org is coming soon and I am excited and looking forward to be able to help mothers who may not know where to go to get the help and resources they will need to have a healthy pregnancy. Sadly, on April 9th the judge denied my motion for a new trial. Every day that passes when I don’t have my daughter feels like eternity. After being discouraged with the court system, I decided to share a personal account of my situation on Madame Noire, it was never meant as a media blitz but rather my side of the story in protest of my daughter being taken away when I felt powerless against her father’s machine. My side had not been shared up until this point and rumors that I was a bad mother or receiving 7k/month and asking for 15k/month in child support were distressing me, none of which are factual.
I’m back to working full time, but even that isn’t enough to cover the many expenses that come with this fight. I was hesitant to set up a Gofundme page but since my story ran I’ve received overwhelmingly supportive feedback from women and mothers across the country who have offered assistance and want to help with launching my organization. I plan to use any donation money to start setting up my non-profit “No Mother Left Behind” with a mission to educate, enrich, enlighten and empower low income mothers and also to help bring my own daughter back.
I’ve read and appreciate all the messages, prayers and similar stories that I’ve received. You have made me feel less alone. With all my heart I sincerely say thank you.
