Send Three Girls HOME!

Sunday, September 21, is FREEDOM SUNDAY, when the world is asked to recognize the 40+ million adults and children being kept as slaves, more than ever before in human history. Read on to find out how you have the opportunity to safely return a child to her home country and to her family.


Human trafficking is modern-day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. It is a $150 billion industry; 1 in 4 victims is a child and 80% of those victimized are for sexual exploitation.


And please note, that although we might think of this as an issue predominantly on foreign soil, the headlines here in Utah tell the same unfortunate tale. It is happening. All around us. It might not affect us personally, but as citizens of this community and world, we still have a responsibility to be aware and of opportunities to act. For example, financially support those organizations that are actively rescuing (https://ourrescue.org), recognize the signs of human trafficking (https://polarisproject.org/human-trafficking/recognize-signs) and consider your purchases (https://www.dol.gov/agencies/ilab/reports/child-labor/list-of-goods).


On that note, Operation Underground Railroad, with a local law enforcement here in Utah, works with victims of local SLC brothels (yes, you read that correctly) as well as to free victims all over the world. Every. Day. They are currently working to help over 700 girls who have escaped their situation in the Middle East who are now imprisoned because they do not have documentation. I almost wish I did not know the details of what they have endured, but if they can survive such horrific trauma, we can open our ears and eyes and hearts and wallets on their behalf. It costs $500 to get one of these girl’s returned to their family and home country.


Will you join me today as I try to raise enough funds to send three of these girls home? Give through the link or message me to learn more. Thank you!
