Jewels from Heaven 2011
EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2011
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Oct 28, 2011
FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Oct 15, 2011
A benefit in honor of the children we lost...for the "lost" children, joining bereaved parents on one night to honor our children by making an impact in the lives of at-risk children in India.
School is not free in India, so many slum children never start school or do not stay in school past the 2nd grade. Research shows that the longer an at-risk child in India stays in school, the less likely she will be forced into the commercial sex trade. The average age of entry into the sex trade in India is 11yrs old, and 200 girls and women enter the commercial sex trade in India every day.
Unfortunately, many slum families cannot afford to send their children to school or do not see a reason to educate their daughters. Once on the street, young girls are easy targets for human trafficking.
Rahab’s Rope supports two preschools in Goa, India, and we need your help to keep these safe-havens open and children attending. By committing to sponsor a child or support our preschool program with your donation, you are helping an at-risk child get off to the right start, giving them a chance for a life outside of the commercial sex industry of India. Read more about the work being done at Rahab's Rope at www.rahabsrope.com.
Tickets are $5at the door. Buy tickets online at http://jewelsfromheaven.eventbrite.com. Sponsor a child in preschool for only $75 a year. Donate on an angel's fundraising page below. Checks can be made out to Rahab’s Rope and mailed to Christy Kunkel at 115 Bradford St. SE, Gainesville, GA 30501.
BEREAVED PARENTS: CREATE A FUNDRAISING PAGE IN HONOR OF YOUR CHILD AND A QUILT WILL BE MADE AND GIVEN IN THEIR NAME TO A CHILD IN OUR PROGRAM! This will be presented to you at the benefit. Donate or raise $75 and we will send you a picture and story of the child that is sponsored in your child's honor. There will be an opportunity to recognize your child at the event, and you can also request a table to seat your friends and family. Decorate the table with a picture of your child, memorabilia, etc. You will also receive a take-home gift to remember this night and the positive impact you made in your child’s honor. Join us for a mission trip to hand deliver the quilts to these children in India. Inquire through the contact info below...
