Well folks, it was a success. On January 20th 2012 Sara, Lynda and I threw a jewelry party to raise money for Destiny Rescue. The jewelry was hand-made by girls in Thailand that were rescued from forced prostitution and the money raised goes back to the organization to help them continue their work discovering, rescuing, and restoring these precious girls who are victims of modern slavery.
Our goal was to make $500 and I’m proud to say we surpassed it. (Drum roll please…) We made a total of $766!
Thank you, all who participated.
And to those of you who are thinking of throwing a Destiny Rescue party yourself, I highly recommend it. It was super easy, lots of fun, and an effective way to introduce the topic of human trafficking to our friends, family and coworkers.
As a result of this party, not only did we raise funds for a great cause, but we also got a few more people who told us they want to be involved in planning our next abolitionist event! How great is that!? I guess we’ll have to get a bigger table for our next meeting at Brewtopia (our coffee shop).
