The Story

Tjhisha Ball (Tah-Heesha) and Angelia Mangum (An-ju-lee-ah) were two bright young women living in the Tampa, FL area who had their lives ahead of
them and tragically had them taken away. Since the discovery of their bodies on September 18th, the
media has done little to no coverage of their horrific murders and have done everything they can to tarnish the images of the these two women, the victims of a terrible crime.

We here at Everyday Whorephobia, an activist group for sex workers, have stepped up to raise donations to help offset the funeral costs for both families who are shocked by this sudden tragedy.

We refuse to let these two deaths go quietly into the night as two more on the list of black women who are slain and go their murders go unnoticed. We refuse to allow the public persecution of the victims of violence. We refuse to let their families suffer alone and without help.

Thanks to @_Peech we have reached out to both the Jacksonville, FL
Sheriff's Department, and the Coney Funeral Home, the home in charge of their services.

Both have worked with us in exchanging information and putting us in touch with the families so we can support them in their time of need. The funeral home has stated they are accepting donations for the cost of the arrangements and we have started this page in order to generate not only the funds to help but also to continue to spread the word of what happened so that they will not be forgotten.

The costs for both funerals has been estimated by an employee of Coney Funeral Home to be around $17,000 (US Dollars) and we ask that you give what you can.

Thank you,

The Women of @whorephobia

We need your help again! Thank you for all you've done so far - in less than a month we've raised a little over $11,000 to help bury Tjhisha and Angelia to take a burden off of their families. But we still have $6,000 left to go - and only 7 days to do it. Here's how you can help: Can you share this somewhere you haven't shared it before? Can you tweet and use the hashtag #TjhishaAndAngelia with a link to this fundraiser? Can you find one person to ask if they would be willing to donate? Any amount, even $1, will help us to reach our goal. Thank you so much for everything you've already done and for continuing to help us and Tj and Ang's families.
