I was alerted to this issue recently through a couple of conversations with family members and blog friends.
Today, the 9th of September is “Stop Sex Trafficking Day.”
The simple initiative is to raise funds on September 9th of this year (09.09.09) to raise 81,000 dollars against Child Sex Trafficking.
Here is a place you can start to donate now
I did want to give a little link love to Kamrie (my sister).
She started a ministry called Scarlet Cord Ministries (found here).
She is working with girls in Nicaragua and partnering in initiative to adopt a prostitute.
What she has done is connect girls in the united states to girls in the prostitution and sex trade business. She sets them up to be pen pals and offer support to each other.
The coolest thing about this ministry is that she is 15 and is a sophomore in high school. What i love about it the most is that she is connecting girls at her high school with the ministry. Most of these girls are not christians at all, and who knows what they think about Christianity or Christians. But this ministry is opening their eyes and helping them with a tangible example of being Jesus to others.
I would love to flood her site with traffic to give her some encouragement and some love.
Go and check it out and read more about what she is doing and how you can get involved.
