I was subject to sexual assault a few years ago, and while my terror in no way compares to that of the girls GEMS is working to save, my experience makes GEMS work hit very close to home. Physical love is a precious thing, and it is being stolen from girls all around the world, and close to home, right now. GEMS is working to end that theft and return sexual ownership to all females. If that isn't a cause worth fighting for, and celebrating, I don't know what is! The GEMS organization deserves all the recognition and support that is available. With them, we can save lives, in more ways then one. Xo!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save SO many young lives, physically, mentally and emotionally. It could very well put an end to this situation!

I have only been a member of this organization for a little bit but I can tell you this. I know of girls who have struggled with sexual exploitation and to know that there are people who care, people who have been through the same thing is most crucial for these young victims.There needs to be more of these organizations.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save so many victims and educate them. create more resources and information on how to recover from such a horrific experience.
