1440. The number of minutes in every day that a human trafficking victim is enslaved, and the same number of minutes we are free. What will you do with it? Join me in the fight to end human trafficking in Metro Detroit.
Money is time. Funds raised by Love Runs will shorten the time impacted children are at-risk, and victims can be rescued and restored. Safe housing, medical and psychological support, educational and vocational training are just some of the basics that Love Runs will be funding.Love Run’s predominate focus will be on the Detroit area and 100% of the funds raised will be for local impact.
Examples of the impact your donation will make:
$10 = will provide food and a hygiene kit for a victim.
$14 = will house a rescued victim for a night.
$25 = will give important educational skills, like reading.
$100 = *will shelter a victim for a night; provide fifteen hygiene/safety/nutrition kits; one year of mentoring for reading; support life skills training, medical and psychological treatment.
*The cost of housing, medical and psychological care will vary greatly depending on the location and condition of the victim. For every equation we don’t know, what we do know is that every life matters and every dollar makes a difference. Whether it takes you 360 minutes to run a marathon, or just 3 minutes to make a donation, you can make a difference to end modern-day slavery.
1440 – that’s not only the amount of dollars Love Runs challenges me as a runner to raise to fight human trafficking; it’s the number of minutes in every day that a victim is enslaved, and the same number of minutes we are free. Human trafficking is such a complex problem it does not lend itself to easy equations. While most victims face similar challenges, each victim’s rescue and restoration is unique. Will you join me in the fight?
