It's our Birthday!
We're celebrating ALL week because on April 28th, 2010, we officially became a 501c3 non profit organization.
We are humbled and grateful for all of your support over these years. We want to take this week to celebrate, to remember why we do this work, and to spur all of us on to keep on keepin' on...
because CHANGE is REAL. TRUE FREEDOM is POSSIBLE.
Since we began in 2010, we have seen these wonderful things worth celebrating:
1 is the number of times we ship to each country each year
2 is the number of executive directors we have had
3, soon to be 4 is the number of countries where we have had a program
4 is the number of current part-time employees
35-40 is the average number of people who volunteer at each packing party
69 is the number of packing parties we have had since the bra collection site moved to Indiana at the beginning of 2013
149 is the number of current drop-off locations.
The number of bras we have shipped (we don't have the exact number...) but we do know it's somewhere in the vicinity of 970,000. Eek!
We will hit a million this year!!
We will be highlighting across social media some facts about human trafficking, facts about the countries we work in, and facts about Free The Girls and the work we do!
