BENEFITING: Somaly Mam Foundation
I am raising money to help the Somaly Mam Foundation. Check it out at www.somaly.org.
I watched a documenatry called Half the Sky and it really hit my heart to say the least. It prompted me to take some action to help women and girls being sold into brothels in Cambodia. Many of these females had no choice and some as young as 3 years old!! Yes, that's right 3 years of age!! It's horrendous and heart wrenching and I feel I must do something to help these humans out! So, I have set up this fundraiser in hopes to raise $3,000. This sum of money is enough to take one survivor from rescue to recovery. Including edcation and reintegration with economic opportunities. And to give these survivors a renewed sense of faith, hope and dignity.
I could blabber on and on about what this amazing, inspiring woman named Somaly has done for herself and these girls but I would really love if all of you could see for yourself.
Check out Half the Sky on Netflix and hold your heart because it will break.
While it's easy to forget about what goes on outside of our "little bubbles" please take a moment as you rest your head on that cozy, squishy pillow for your peaceful nights sleep and remember that there are many humans out there in serious need of help in more ways than one. A little thought goes a long way!
Thank you for listening and I wish all of you an inspiring, blessed 2013!!
