Jennifer Petsu's Fundraiser:

End Child Trafficking

THE STORY:

Please help me raise money for children around the world, whose greatest wish is to be treated like human beings. After reading, Half the Sky, by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn and then watching their PBS documentary of the same title, I realized I had to do something. My first step was creating a fundraiser; run to end child trafficking. Update this week: Marathon completed!!! Total miles run for training and marathon is over 500 miles.Thanks to everyone who has supported me! A percentage of my commission is donated to help the fight against child trafficking. Thanks to my clients so far this year; because of you, I'm able to donate more towards helping to end child trafficking. Thanks to The Fischer Family, Lany Zheng, The Kanner Family, Mark Figueroa, Jessica Wood, The Obasohan Family, The Morgan Family, Charles Koole and The Kvalbik Family.

We all have an idea of what horrific crimes against women and children are committed. It's easy to go on with our lives and make an effort not to think about these atrocities. Watching the documentary, Half the Sky, and reading the book, is not easy. The only thing that separates us from them, is the place we just happen to be born in. I believe it's our responsibility to give back to the less fortunate. There will always be cruelty in the world; we're not going to completely stop it, but if what you give saves one child’s life from torture, isn't that worth it?
