YGL would like to invite all of you to donate your shoes! We are helping collect shoes for the Sole Purpose Shoe Drive. If you have not heard about it, it is a 10-month fund raising campaign that benefits the non-profit group Transitions Global. If you have shoes you’d like to donate here is a simple way you can use old shoes to help make a difference.
The mission of Transitions Global “is to empower survivors of sex trafficking with the opportunity to heal and recapture the most basic of human rights: freedom and hope. Transitions Global uses holistic and innovative solutions to provide a safe environment where girls can heal through intensive trauma therapy, life skills training and learn viable, sustainable job skills. Transitions Global empowers girls to become strong and independent adults. Restoring dignity, health, and most importantly hope, Transitions Global is a pioneer in the rehabilitation of trafficking survivors.”
Through this Sole Purpose fundraiser, proceeds help a 16 year old girl named Phalla from Cambodia to receive education, dental and medical needs, therapy, and food and shelter. Learn more details surrounding Phalla and her devastating situation that will have a brighter outcome thanks to Transitions Global here, Sole Purpose Flyer and here: http://www.wakepeopleup.com/creative-colorado-woman-plans-shoe-drive-to-stomp-out-sexual-slavery-in-cambodia/
Please spread the word about the drive to your friends and family! Contact us for drop off locations – The drive ends May 4th, so please coordinate the delivery of shoes prior to this date.
