BENEFITING: Somaly Mam Foundation
Margot MacDonald cut off her hair to raise money for the Somaly Mam Foundation and spread awareness of sex slavery which inspired me to do the same. More than 2 million women and children (some as young as five years old) are sold into sex slavery each year. The SMF's vision: "A world where women and children are safe from slavery." Their mission: "To give victims and survivors a voice in their lives, liberate victims, end slavery, and empower survivors as they create and sustain lives of dignity." This cause hits close to home with me since I am a survivor of sexual abuse. I will also be donating my hair to the Locks Of Love Organization which creates hairpieces for children suffering from long term medical hair loss. All in all shaving my head will benefit two non-profit organizations. Please help me raise money to help end sexual slavery and raise awareness of this global crisis. Thank you.
