To all the brides and women who want to make a difference,
My thoughts are with the thousands upon thousands of women and children who are not as blessed as we are to have the basic right of freedom to be who they were created to be. I’m talking about the victims of prostitution slavery, the industry that we’ve come to know as human trafficking.
Over one million women and children are exploited in the global commercial sex trade each year, according to the U.S. Department of State. Although, sex trafficking is happening everywhere, including the U.S. and Canada, our focus this year will be in partnering with the work of Breaking Chains Network out of Belgium.
Last year we developed the website for http://www.RunForRescue.org to aid the women in Cambodia and this year I’ve decided to step up to the plate and do a little more then that. I’ve decided to do the run myself too and on March 7th 2010, I will be running the Walt Disney World 20+ km (13 mile) half marathon.
The money raised is going to help women in Belgium on every level physical, emotional and spiritual. I’m asking you to partner with me and although you may not physically run with me, you can still be a part of rescuing women and children. Your donation can make a difference in the lives of women who have yet to discover freedom.
My goal is to raise $2000 or more. To donate online, we’ve setup a page at http://www.herweddingplanner.com/donate
The responsibility to help in the rescue and restoration of women seems like a huge undertaking. However, you and I can make a difference with even just one woman and one child.
Thank you and God Bless!
