BENEFITING: HAGAR USA INC
EVENT DATE: Dec 29, 2013
I am off to Vietnam to join a team that will cycle from Saigon into Cambodia (check out the map!)—over 300 miles in 14 days from December 29, 2013 to January 12, 2014. Our mission: to raise awareness and money to support the non-profit organization Hagar International. Hagar International is an aftercare organization that works with survivors of abuse, exploitation, and human trafficking in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and Vietnam, providing shelter, counseling, and education. They do amazing work restoring women's lives for the long run. For more information about the organization, check out their website: http://hagarinternational.org/international/. Hagar USA is the US arm of Hagar International.
Your donations go directly to support the organization and are tax deductible. I am personally funding all my own travel expenses.... so no need to worry and think you are funding Laura's travel bug tendencies. When donating, Crowdrise asks for an optional processing fee. Feel free to opt out and set it to zero. Then, all your funds go to Hagar! You will be sent an email with a receipt.
Please consider contributing to the work of Hagar! Even small amounts with many of us coming together can make a large impact and change the lives and futures of victims of human trafficking.
I appreciate all your support!
