Paress Salinas' Fundraiser:

Thirty Three Reasons

THE STORY:

 

33 has been coined "THE JESUS YEAR". According to historians, Jesus was crucified at the age of 33 after leading the most significant spiritual, intellectual and political revolution to date in world history.

Because of its spiritual significance, 33 is the year that evokes a shift in our lives... an inner calling to stand for something greater than ourselves.

A week before my 33rd birthday, I was elected to sit on the Board of Directors for the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking. I do not believe this timing was a coincidence. We are all called to be of service to the world. Unfortunately, we don't always hear our call, distracted by a society that leads us to believe we only need serve ourselves in abundance.

I choose to pledge my 33rd year of life to the service of others. While I do not assume mine will carry the impact of Jesus, I know it is done in the same spirit and with the same intention.

I ask that you join me in pledging what you can to a fantastic organization filled with people that pledge their lives daily to the healing of those affected by modern day slavery.

We all are responsible to create our own revolutions…Thank you for being an important part of mine.

With love and respect,
P
