BENEFITING: The Freedom Story
A few years back I had the great fortune of being introduced to an inspirational organization called The SOLD Project. These amazing people fight for justice and freedom for those in Thailand who are at risk for being sexually trafficked. Their goal? Stopping exploitation before it begins. They currently have resource centers and scholarship programs in Northern Thailand for children who couldn't otherwise afford to stay in school. And every weekday, their local Thai staff provides after-school programs, classes, mentorship, and other tools the kids need to succeed in life and avoid the path to exploitation. By partnering with and investing in local communities, they are helping these kids break the cycle of poverty and achieve things they'd never previously dared to dream.
I currently support The SOLD Project through their Stand 4 Freedom Campaign, but want to explore these issues more deeply by traveling to Thailand to witness their incredible impact first hand. So with the help of the company I work for - Westwood International - I'll be heading to Thailand for 10 days in November and have decided to reach out to my friends and family for support as well. We are asked to raise $300 in donations to attend, but I want to aim even higher than that. So I'm inviting you to please join me in supporting The SOLD Project any way you can: thoughts, prayers, or maybe a couple dollars . All of your contribution will go towards to preventing innocent children from being trafficked, so thank you so much in advance.
