Good afternoon Friends!
Have you seen everyone posting the Red X to their status lately? Do you wonder what that means or how you can personally make a difference in someone’s life? Well the Red X stands for putting an end to Human/ Sex Trafficking around the world. Millions of people particularly young women (children by our standards are being sold and traded as slaves….. yes this is still rampant in the year 2014). Sometimes I get so caught up my own world of raising boys, car lines, baseball games, what’s for dinner, how can I loose 20 pounds…. that I forget about a world suffering and fighting for their freedom to live. When I do think about it, my heart hurts, my eyes well up with tears, I think wish I could help and then I get sidetracked with laundry. It the past year the Lord has done awesome things in the Knoxville Community with SWAP and my heart runs over. But guess what ladies…. while we are cleaning out closets, go ahead and clean out your bra drawer. Then call your friends and family too! On April 5th we are going to partner with Free The Girls and host a bra drive at the Clothing SWAP. Our gently used BRAS can provide an income and a way to freedom for people around the globe. Check out this website and impact Free The Girls Org is making in the fight against Human Trafficking.
Will you help us make a difference from Knoxville to Mozambique? More details to come!!
1. Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 5th for the Family Style Clothing SWAP
2. Tell your friends!
3. Scour your closets! What is taking up precious space?
