My name is Chris Waters. I am a father, husband, leadership coach, Marine Corps veteran, and now an ABOLITIONIST. As many veterans can relate, we struggle in the civilian world with the absence of a purpose worthy of our complete commitment. As a Volunteer Team Lead supporting Operation Underground Railroad, I don't have that problem.
A few years ago, I took the time to write my personal purpose statement: "To improve, secure, and protect our future, so that our children and our children's children can live in freedom and prosperity." In the past year, I watched Tim Ballard tell his story on television on how he formed O.U.R. and that there are more slaves today than during the days when slavery was legal. Tim explained that O.U.R. conducts operations to free children from sex slavery, as well as capture those who engage in child sex slavery. I knew in that moment that I found a vehicle to help me live my purpose, and more importantly, work to eliminating one of the greatest evils on earth.
Tim and his team conduct operations, mostly in other countries, rescuing children from slavery. And, with cooperation of host nation authorities, Tim and his team capture those who engage in the sex slave trades that put those children in slavery.
There are no exact numbers, but some averages have been said to be around $40,000 to $50,000 to conduct an operation. That is why I am setting the goal for this campaign at $50,000. With your help, we can fund an operation that saves children from slavery. We can also put evil people who abduct and enslave children in prison.
Let's abolish slavery once and for all.
