3 Peaks 3 Lives

Hello from Lester and Mike!

A month ago we were going about our normal lives, assuming slavery was a far distant and declining problem and there wasn’t anything we could do about it. Enter a Tuesday morning podcast featuring Tim Ballard (CEO of O. U. R) which bought the reality into the forefront of our minds and it broke us both.


In this very moment, there are children in the darkest of places having unspeakable things done to them, praying for someone to come and save them. These dark places aren’t just in distant countries, child sexual abuse and trafficking is happening in your city, in EVERY corner of the world.


There are more people currently living lives of slavery than any other time in human history!! This reality makes it hard to continue the disassociation and whilst neither of us can currently go charging in and saving these children; we can, with your help, support the people that are, Operation Underground Railroad (O. U. R).


This is exactly how Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R) helps….


O.U.R brings together highly qualified members of special forces and goes undercover to rescue children across the globe who have been victims of sex trafficking and sexual exploitation to ensure their suffering stops.


The best part of their operation is that they focus heavily on the mental rehabilitation and healing of the children they save as opposed to just "stopping the bad guys" (which they also do). We personally feel this foundation to be the real life Avengers. They aren’t swooping in, saving the day and leaving the aftermath, they are staying down and dirty and making sure the children saved are given the help they need to have a future.


In the past six years, O.U.R. has rescued 4,100 victims, assisted in the arrests of more than 2,300 traffickers, and collectively helped rescue more than 10,000 survivors through strategic partnerships.

 

(watch the video to get a flavour of what the foundation does.)

 

So what is the 3 peaks 3 lives challenge?


According to Tim Ballard (the CEO of O.U.R) the cost to free a child from sexual exploitation is approximately $3500. 


On the 14th of Feb 2021 (now moved to 28th Nov 2021 due to covid restrictions across the UK), both Mike and Lester will be climbing the 3 tallest mountains in the UK (Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon) in sub-zero temperatures wearing nothing but shorts and shoes.*


We are doing this because the reality is, every bit of money (and awareness) raised around this issue helps, it doesn’t feel like enough but it’s more than nothing.



Why only shorts and shoes?

The two of us met on a Wim Hof retreat a few years ago where we got to experience the benefits of cold exposure, but more importantly, gained a better understanding of what the famous saying "mind over matter" actually meant. It showed us that very often, the things we think to be crazy or unachievable goals are sometimes just mental obstacles or false expectations appearing real.


This is a wonderful reminder to us that the idea of ending child sex slavery may at first seem like a crazy or unachievable goal but merely another mental obstacle that can be overcome.

This means that with the help of your donation, every mountain we climb that day will represent another child being saved from sexual slavery and torture - finally on their journey towards healing. We hope you can help us do more.


You don’t have to climb a few mountains to help, that’s our choice, but ANY donation amount will make a difference. And share share share. Read. Get the word out. Know it’s real and be a part of making it stop. 


No matter your background or beliefs. This is an issue we can all come together for.

Please help us meet our goal and save innocent children — TOGETHER, WE CAN END CHILD SEX SLAVERY & SAVE CHILDREN’S LIVES! 


*For safety, we have climbed these mountains in the same context before individually. This is the first time we will be doing this sequentially.
