THE STORY:

This year I decided to participate actively in the project Rescue 18for18 created by the beautiful talented Serinda Swan. In the past 5 years, Serinda Swan and her team, with the support of Hudson Jean, created awareness and raised funds for organizations that fight human traffciking and sex trafficking. New Light (www.newlightindia.org ) has been one of the recipients of the grant for the last three years.

I am so proud to announce that this year for the first time in my life, I will be joining the team and I shall be jumping out of a plane from 18,000 feet in Santa Barbara, California. 


Please help me to reach my goal of raising $1,000 any amount of dollars will help New Light.

THANK YOU super crusader Serinda Swan for not looking away from the harsh reality of human trafficking . Your action through 18for18 is inspiring thousands to take personal responsibility in fighting modern day slavery. 


You are saving lives each day ...


One life at a time.

Urmi Basu

Project Rescue 18for18 was founded in 2012 when actress & human rights activist, Serinda Swan, traveled to Cambodia, Malaysia and Thailand to meet with victims of sex trafficking. What started out as a one time effort to raise $18,000 by skydiving 18,000 has now brought in over $622,000 and reached over 93 million people with its anti sex trafficking awareness campaign. Happening this year on August 19th in Los Angeles, California

THE RIDE
This is the first year that Serinda & Project Rescue will be doing a charity ride en route to the jump in Santa Barbara. Once again we are thrilled to be partnering with our long-time supporter Peter Kim, Hudson Jeans Founder and Co-Partner of Powerplant Motorcycles. We will be starting the journey at Powerplant Motorcycles in West Hollywood and riding 150 miles to the skydive in the hopes of helping reach our goal of $150,000. This trip will be part of a short video that we are producing this year in partnership with TV Host / Activist Oliver Trevena who has worked around the world the past 6 years to fight against human trafficking with the organization “Not for Sale” as well as other organizations in the US & India and has also previously jumped with 18 for 18.

THE DIVE 

This will be the sixth time a group of like minded individuals, friends and influencers will be facing their fears by skydiving 18,000 (North America’s highest Skydive) to represent the estimated 1.2M women and children that will be sold into sex trafficking this year. We work closely with the top non- profits in this field, donating 100% of what we raise through the jump.
