Last week, as we sat down to celebrate Thanksgiving, I was struck by the enormity of what we are attempting. We are taking on the world’s fastest-growing criminal enterprise … in so many ways, that is a crazy thing to do!
But I’m thankful. For you all. That’s what I thought as I sat down to eat turkey. We are not alone in this fight. We set out to raise $30,000 in 30 days, and thanks to your generosity we did it. Even more, we raised nearly $35,000. Around our office, we are celebrating this significant victory! But we are also planning for next year. December will fly by and in January, Human Trafficking Prevention Awareness Month, we have multiple opportunities to get educated, to serve and to advocate for those who aren’t yet free.
So a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made this year possible! Let’s keep moving the ball forward, together.
