JACKSON, Mississippi – February 26, 2016 – Dorthea Hughes announced her Kickstarter campaign to fund her book – Hushed Cries. This is a non-fiction book about Hughes journey from being a tormented and sexually abusive child to becoming an inspiration to others. The campaign goal is to raise $4,000 by April 24, 2016.
This is the first time Dorthea will share her heartbreaking story of a long, difficult road to how she survived the abuse from her father and became the woman she is today. She hopes to start an out-loud discussion on a topic that only generates soft whispers behind closed doors. The project has an author and the manuscript is ready for publication. Hughes even accepted a publishing contract with a small independent press. However, a book surrounding such an important topic needs a bigger publisher that will bring the attention this project needs!
In an ever-perfect world, the book will save children from going down a terrible path of destruction and bring awareness to this issue to protect our youths. According to Child Help, at least five children die from abuse and neglect every day! The ones who survive walk away with an everlasting scar in their hearts. This is an issue that needs to be spoken about. People need to learn the warning signs and what to do to stop the abuse from continuing. Dorthea hopes this book will bring a safe haven for abused children.
Although Hughes was lucky to survive such a horrific experience, not all children are as lucky! This is why she has also started the paperwork to create a Brighter Day Outreach Center Inc. A portion of the funds raised from the campaign will lay the foundation for the non-profit organization that aims to protect children who experience sexually and physically abused. Fifty percent of book sales will go to the foundation as well.

Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal. If the campaign does not reach the funding goal, then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given can make a difference. This is also an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special campaign! Help this project reach the campaign goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.
