Suzanne, a young mother of four, is a survivor of domestic violence. She recently moved out of My Sister's House and is starting out on her own with the help of a local church and a Good Cheer Fund agency.

She is presently unemployed, but is working on building her resume and networking in the community with the help of AmeriCorps and the Trident United Way's Prosperity Center.

Your donation to the Good Cheer Fund can aid Suzanne in making a new start by helping her keep her family safe and warm this holiday season.

Contributions to The Post and Courier's Good Cheer Fund have helped the less fortunate in the Lowcountry since 1927. The six charitable organizations sharing the funds collected are Carolina Youth Development Center, Lowcountry Food Bank, Salvation Army, Star Gospel Mission, Association for the Blind and Coastal Catholic Charities. Every cent of the money raised goes directly to the agencies as there are no administrative costs involved.

Send tax-deductible contributions to the Good Cheer Fund, c/o The Post and Courier, 134 Columbus St., Charleston, SC 29403-4800. Donations also may be made in person or online at
