My birthday is in one month, and to avoid my impending depression of becoming another year older, I've decided to start a birthday fundraiser for one of my favorite organizations, Love146. Its an organization battling child trafficking all across the world, including right here in the United States.
Every 60 seconds, TWO children are sold into the world of trafficking. More than 100,000 children in the United States are forcefully engaged in prostitution or pornography each year.
"Love146 works toward the abolition of child trafficking and exploitation through prevention and aftercare. Love146 trains aftercare workers, multiplies safehomes, aids socioeconomic development programs in high risk communities and provides a voice for these victims of modern-day slavery."
Give up buying your coffee for two days, instead give that money to these children. It's as simple as that. Since this is my 24th birthday, the goal is to have 24 people donate $10 (completely tax deductible!).
