Thanks for stopping by and reading up on my efforts to help end human trafficking. In 2012 I started going to India with my church regularly to help teach English to women and girls rescued from sex-slavery. Even though I was there teaching women to begin a self-sufficient life, I knew my annual trips to India would not be sustainable. Life was changing and I needed to find a way to remain active in anti-human trafficking efforts while staying States-side.
Little did I know about the efforts to end human trafficking in my own back yard in Cincinnati. BLOC Ministries is an organization located in the West-End of Cincinnati dedicated to eradicate generational poverty. One home in particular they fund is the Redeemed House that is dedicated for women who have been rescued out of sex-slavery. These women are housed for 1-2 years while obtaining; education, health-care, and career training in order to graduate and live a self-sustaining life. The Redeemed House runs completely off of charitable donations and grants to provide the care and support these women require. It is truly amazing to see the staff work so selflessly to assist others in redemption.
To raise money for BLOC’s Redeemed House, I have dedicated myself to wearing the same black dress for 90 days. Yes, that’s right, 90’s days! Wearing the same dress is only a modest effort in symbolizing the lack of choice and freedom these women experienced while in sex-slavery. Along with a test to myself, truly leaning on God when all I want is to wear sweatpants rather than a dress. The limiting of my freedom will hopefully ignite a greater awareness of human trafficking that surrounds us.
Please join me in raising money to donate to BLOC Ministries. My goal for the end of the 90 days in $3,000. Follow me on Facebook and Instragram for some cool swag for those who donate target dollar amounts! PS. I travel for work A LOT and have some amazing international prizes!
