Change a look~Change a life 2

I was first introduced to the truth about human trafficking at the 2013 Passion Conference in Atlanta last January.  The depravity behind human slavery left me emotionally crippled for weeks afterwards.  I truly had no idea.  

My husband laughs at how easily I fall asleep.  When my body is tired, the show is over.  I shut down completely.  Standing, sitting, even while in the middle of a conversation...it doesn't matter~I'm going down.  The impact of 27 million people, mainly children and women, being sold into slavery changed those sleep habits.  Now I couldn't go to sleep...regardless of how tired I was.  The images of people being abused, hurt and killed through human trafficking wouldn't leave my mind~even sleep didn't rescue me.  The magnitude of this tragic truth left me overwhelmed with a sense of helplessness....I wanted to help free everyone and anyone, but the sheer numbers were so daunting...where to start?  How can one person make a difference?  

Talking with others in the community helps build awareness...most certainly.  I am so grateful for local organization SHE IS SAFE, a Roswell-based, non-profit organization dedicated to prevent, rescue and restore women and girls from abuse and exploitation in high risk places around the world, equipping them to build a life of freedom, faith and a strong future.  

If your heart aches as mine does for the victims of this dehumanizing reality, I ask you to join with me, SHE IS SAFE and Aura Hair Salon on April 19th from 4-8p in a collaborative effort to help put an end to human trafficking.  Together, we have put together a perfect girls' night out with 100% proceeds benefitting She is Safe.  There are still spots left~please see detailed information below and thank you for any support!
