One of my favorite things is getting on Twitter and seeing a feed full of updates with links to news of rescue and conviction. Not For Sale (Facebook)(Twitter), the International Justice Mission (Facebook)(Twitter) and the Polaris Project (Facebook)(Twitter) are all good resources. Just last night, I read about two girls in Guatemala rescued from sexual abuse, a woman who was being forced to work in an American mansion for less than a dollar an hour, and how soup is bringing hope to victims of sex trafficking in Amsterdam. I really want to encourage you to take some time today to read these stories. While the circumstances were (and may still be) brutal, there is hope because something is being done. These victims are moving forward because someone stood up for them.
Update: $1437.50! We're so close to $1500. Will you help us get there?
