One Million For Freedom.
This week, we officially launched our One Million For Freedom campaign. Yes, it’s our boldest move yet. Yes, it’s the biggest fundraising initiative we’ve taken on. And yes, $1 million will fund some huge plans we have for 2014. But this campaign is not about the million dollars, nor is it about the thousands of people we are supporting. It’s not about the numbers.
Right now, stateless children are being sold on the streets in Thailand. Mothers are being forced into the sex trade in the illegal logging industry in Peru. Orphans are being traded like commodities in Romania. They aren’t a number. They aren’t a statistic. Each victim has a unique story.
MeTa’s heroic story is our most recent inspiration. Once an orphan begging on the streets, she has overcome incredible odds to attend university. She’s using her story to share hope with children like her; you can watch it here.
We are raising $1 million with each vulnerable individual in mind: this campaign is about the one.
Just as each survivor has a powerful story, we too can make our stories matter this holiday season. You have the opportunity to become a part of their story today. Give the gift of freedom this year.
