A Worthy Cause
Got an email you all might find interesting. Normally I ignore these things, but this is a cause near and dear to my heart:
On Monday Stephen Baldwin begins his quest to win the hottest show of the summer television season on NBC, "I'm a celebrity, get me outta here!" The celebrities involved are all playing for different charities, but we wanted you to know specifically what he hopes earn thousands of dollars for... the end to sex trafficking.
As you can see from the graphic above this condition is impacting the lives of millions of innocent boys and girls every single year.
Imagine the trauma that accompanies being a nine year old girl who is forced to begin performing vaginal and oral sex acts on strangers, while being cuffed to a bed railing. The pain, the horror, the absolute terror...
And these are the children that Love146 is setting free. They do this with a two-fold strategy, reaching children BEFORE they are taken by traffickers, and also rescuing them and offering them the AFTERCARE resources designed to help them emotionally, mentally, and with physical security.
Stephen will be doing all he can in the month of June to win Love146 as much money as he can. But as the news has spread about this, we are PLEASED to announce that we have engaged another unique opportunity for you to join us in setting these captive children free.
From now until the end of June (the conclusion of the NBC series "I'm a Celebrity Get Me Outta Here") some very special friends have made it possible for you to assist us, simply by sending a text message to "20222" and entering the word "Give" in the text's body you will make a $5 donation to Love146.
Love146 is a certified 501c3 and their 2008 Annual Report can be examined here.
Love146 is a passion for us at Xtreme Media and we are praying that many will take advantage of this unique opportunity, and merely a few seconds to help frightened children as they go to bed tonight having to do horrific things, to unkind people, in totally degrading ways.
Please stand with us as we stand with them. Text "20222" right now and begin helping these ones who need rescuing.
Now anyone who knows me in real life knows that the Blog Princess does not text. But in this case, I'm making an exception.
Go thou, and do likewise. You'll be glad you did.
