We can scarcely believe it but the time has come for Freedom Fund again! This is our fifth year raising funds for our prevention work thanks to a generous matching donation from True Organic Products, Inc.
Our partnership with a company dedicated to growing food organically and treating workers justly began nearly a half-decade ago and what a relationship it has been! Over the last four years, we have turned $50,000 into $114,157 thanks to our faithful supporters. That money has gone directly into our prevention work and we believe that we have put it to good use. To date, we have hosted 265 presentations, educated 17,765 individuals face to face, and graduated 624 people from our HT 101/201/301 classes!
This has only been possible thanks to you and your support. This year, we have added Marissa Garcia to our staff and this has already allowed us to put nearly 100 youth through our 5-session prevention programs. In order to fund our 2019 budget and beyond, we have set our most ambitious goal yet of $25,000 to be matched by True Organic Products.
As of this morning though, we are only about 17% of the way to our goal … so we are asking you to please give so we can continue with this important work! Any amount, no matter how small, will help us get there. Whether it’s $10, $50 or even $100, can you help us take the next step on this journey?
Thanks to you, the future is looking bright and lives are being redirected away from exploitation!
