A California teenage moving company offers a mother and her daughter free help while they escape from an abusive ex-husband
Victims of violence are not always able to cope with their problem. In many cases they are simply afraid to talk about the problem, sometimes they are ashamed, and sometimes they just hope that somehow the bad time will pass.
But sometimes the financial possibilities do not allow such a big step.
A California moving company founded by two high school students helps victims of violence. The company is called Meathead Movers and has been in operation since 1997.
What sets them apart from other moving companies is that they offer victims a completely free service. Aaron and Evan Steed recall that when they first offered their free help, the phone rang almost 24 hours a day.
The last victim they helped is a California woman who lived with her teenage daughter and young granddaughter. The woman, who asked to remain anonymous, was repeatedly beaten and abused by her ex-husband.
Meathead Movers stepped in and took her, her daughter and grandchild out of the house, then brought them full size beds, a dresser, dining table, chairs and even a beautiful potted plant – all new additions to their brand new home.
Meathead Movers are sometimes called upon to move a victim who is holding a mug shot of a domestic abuse suspect and needs to keep their eyes peeled. One day, a perpetrator came home in the middle of a move, yelled at the movers and threw heavy objects at them in anger.
But these brave and selfless employees remain undeterred in these dire situations. That’s because the team, which is made up mostly of young men, believes real men don’t beat women; Real men help those in need.
