YOU ARE THE BEST!
Over the last few weeks, we raised nearly $16,000 from funds coming in strictly for the Costa Rica campaign!
While we didn't quite hit our goal on the campaign site, all the incredible Facebook fundraisers that you all have been holding for your birthdays in June put us over our $30,000 goal! Not only did the last month prove we have an amazing tribe, but it showed us how this Abolitionist Community comes together for the bigger goal. We were able to double the global influence with Threads Worldwide and see how collaboration and partnership can truly increase impact.
This entire FTG Costa Rica journey has been one of unexpected twists and turns. Although we've been dreaming about an additional location for years, it's been stop-and-go ... and now feels like go-go-go! It takes a lot of communication and planning in order to start the bra selling program in a new place. And thankfully, everything is coming together so that eight courageous women can leave exploitive situations
...and begin a new lifestyle of freedom, dignity, and sustainability.
The first shipment of bras will be heading out this month, and thanks to you and your generosity, these 8 new women are preparing to take their first steps into entrepreneurship selling bras!
We are continually amazed at the Everyday Abolitionists that make our programs possible. With your generosity of donating bras and bucks, sharing about human trafficking and Free The Girls, using your sphere of influence, you're able to make a difference! All of it matters! Every little bit helps!
Thanks for joining us in a declaration of RESTORED HOPE!
All the love. All the celebration of freedom.
