THE STORY:

DONATE $30 BY JUNE 14 AND BE ENTERED TO WIN A $50 GIFT CERTIFICATE TO SMASHBOX. Details on my blog: http://jadekeller.com/2010/05/all-i-want-for-my-birthday/.

We are people passionate about preventing child prostitution: our goal is that no child ever be exposed to a life of exploitation. The SOLD Project Scholarship Fund was founded in May 2008 when we learned that many children drop out of school due to poverty and end up in situations of exploitation. We began offering educational scholarships to children at risk of exploitation: partnering up a student with a sponsor [you!].

A year later our scholarship program grew into the more holistic, The FREEDOM Project. The FREEDOM Project is made up of 1) Scholarships 2) Mentorship for every child that is sponsored 3) A resource center for the community and 4) Human Trafficking Awareness Programs at the school starting in every 6-grade classroom to teach the children about the realities of human trafficking and prostitution.

The money raised here will go towards building and running the resource center. It's sometimes easy in the US to forget how far a dollar goes in developing countries, but even if you can only afford a few dollars, just know that $1 is all it takes to keep a child in school one day more.
