My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Selah Freedom, Sarasota, FL, USA
#BestChristmasEver for Trafficking Survivors
'1 out of 3 girls in the United States is sexually abused.'
'12 to 14 years old is the average age of entry into sex trafficking.'
'80% of runaways are approached by a trafficker within 48 hours of leaving home.'
As a father of two little girls, these statistics are more than I can bear. As a follower of Christ, my heart aches for those whose lives are enveloped in darkness. That's why I am eternally grateful for the amazing organization of Selah Freedom! The work they do to rescue young ladies and women from these horrific circumstances, educate community and law enforcement, raise awareness and diminish these statistics through prevention is something I personally believe in. This Christmas, my company has partnered with a local church in an effort to provide the #BestChristmasEver. We are raising funds and awareness via social media in order to purchase gifts, dinner and fellowship to the survivors living at the Selah Freedom Residential House. For some of these women, this will be the first 'real' Christmas experience they have ever had. This is an amazing opportunity we have been blessed with to shower these women with love, no strings attached. We hope that through our small efforts, these women can experience an increase in self-worth and see themselves as having an amazing, God-given purpose!
