Tread on Trafficking

“I got to take out what was hidden in my heart.”
– Trafficking survivor, India

Recently an aid blogger wrote about how she often gets asked what the best way is to get involved with a cause, and she answers:  give money. It doesn’t seem exciting to us here in America, but it’s what’s needed.

There are groups of smart, capable, honest people fighting good fights all over the world. But to continue to do that they need more resources, particularly money. Somebody’s money paid for the rescue operation that led to the freedom of the trafficking survivor I quoted above, and paid for the care she received afterwards that made her feel safe. That is exciting.

Love146‘s Tread on Trafficking is about to begin, and I’m going to be participating as I did last year. Some of you were very generous last year and supported me, and I ask you to do it again if you’re able to by going here

And if you’re up for it, you can join me and become a Treader (I don’t actually know if that’s what we’re called) by going here. You can walk, run, bike, swim, do yoga, hula dance, whatever you want.

Whether you donate or become a Treader (because I’ve decided this is what we should be called), you’ll be enabling Love146 to help more survivors take out what’s hidden in their hearts.

  1. I would love to Tread WITH you! (But I can’t really, wah wah.) Will you be walking again this year? In the meantime, I will Tread two ways with you: I will keep my daughters out of the trafficking market, and I will donate.

    Also, happy birthday to your mom.

    Also, loved your post on depression. I’ve thought about it a lot.

    Also, cute pandas.

    There. I think I am caught up on commenting.
