Friends/Family! I exceeded my Tread on Trafficking goal this year and it’s because you guys are awesome. It’s not because I walked a whole bunch, because I lost track of my miles in early to mid June and I have no idea what my final count was. But I know you’ll forgive me since you […]Read More Tread on Trafficking 2012 Wrap-up
For the past few years there’s been a big push to do everything locally. We’re all encouraged to buy from local retailers and eat food from local farms, and especially to support local causes and non-profit organizations. Many non-profit organizations tout on their websites and in their literature that all money raised will stay right […]Read More Faraway Neighbors
The “146” part of Love146’s name comes from the number a little girl was wearing on her chest one night in a brothel. The people who would found Love146 were visiting the brothel, trying to learn more about sex trafficking. The girls that were for sale that night were behind a piece of glass. The […]Read More You are precious. You are not a commodity.
I’m still raising money for Love146 by Treading on Trafficking. I haven’t been talking about it much in real life or on the interwebs because it’s so uncomfortable to ask people for money. When I went to Love146’s conference nearly two years ago, Rob Morris, a co-founder of Love146, said a few words to the […]Read More In an effort not to suck
Hey! I haven’t been the best blog post-er lately because I have a couple of posts I want to write but they both require things like reading and thinking before I can write them, so that hasn’t happened yet. So instead I’m posting this, which will involve very little reading or thinking for any of […]Read More No matter what you say, this technically counts as a post
Miles Walked/Rode/Hula’ed: 10.67 Money Raised: $150 As I mentioned previously, I’m participating in Tread on Trafficking again this year. It officially started May 1, so I’m a little late in writing this post. I’m going to blame it on the pieces I was finishing for Lucinda’s and Steve Holt, our new puppy. Yes, I got […]Read More Tread on Trafficking 2012 – Update #1
“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 […]Read More Tread on Trafficking
And so, my 60 days of forgetting to walk and begging my friends and family for money come to an end. I raised $420, short of my goal, but still a very respectable amount. Combined, the more than 1,000 “Treaders” raised over $100,000. Quick math shows that’s an average of $100 raised per person, which […]Read More The end
It’s my last day to collect money for Love 146’s Tread on Trafficking campaign. Thanks to many of you, I am very close to reaching my goal of $500. But, I’m not there yet. Please go to bit.ly/hayleytot to donate, even if it’s only $5. Every little bit helps rehabilitate girls rescued from sex trafficking […]Read More This is it!
Day: 41 Miles Walked: 43.5 Money Raised: $260 So, I’m a little over halfway through my Tread on Trafficking campaign. As you can see from the above numbers, I’m a little over halfway to my fundraising goal of $500, and I’m a little under halfway towards my goal of walking 89 miles. I have a […]Read More Tread on Trafficking Update #2
