Right now I'm looking for items from your shop/company
handmade items that you could donate to the giveaway.
In return you'll have advertising for your shop go out to thousands of people!
So heres a little about this amazing charity I get thrill and pleasure to serve
a bit about us:
We are a recently developed non-profit organization in Canada and the US with a goal to help end child trafficking and exploitation right here in North America.
Child Trafficking is the business of taking children and putting
them to work either as forced labor or sexual slaves.
Many people are unaware of this issue and that it happens right here in Canada and the US. Worldwide, the child sex trade grosses $28 billion annually. This is more than Nike, Google and Starbucks combined!
We currently have two initiatives under way
They are the...
1) Candlelight Serenade -a benefit acoustic festival to be held at Thanksgiving Point in Utah on August 21, 2010. Featuring Reliant K- third eye blind- dashboard confessional ect and 2 major artists we also can't divulge yet.
And 2) "Our 2000 Friends" Campaign. We have been named as a producer with George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh in the documentary "Playground" by Libby Spears. This documentary exposes brothels and the child sex trade and will be used as an educational aid in teaching law enforcement agencies and the general public about this issue. Our campaign is to raise funds for the last $200 000 to complete the film.
We are trying to educate the masses by doing giveaways such as this one and through large scale events and concerts such as Candlelight.
We are intervening by creating partnerships with law enforcement agencies and local Non Government Organizations (NGOs).
Please feel free to email me if you're interested in taking part in our giveaway and helping to rescue these kids. Any donation small or large from your shop/company ect would be greatly appreciated- Sometimes its the little things that can help the most.
We really want to get the word out and I believe a huge giveaway like this will raise tons of awareness-Plus I know my fellow bloggers and how big their hearts are :)
