While you are enjoying the holiday, I’d like to encourage you to make a donation to one of the many charities that fights for the freedom of those enslaved around the world. I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate your freedom by giving freedom to someone else!
I’m making a donation to Courage Worldwide, a charity based here in Sacramento that provides rescue and restoration of young girls rescued out of sex trafficking locally (yes, it happens in your backyard). I volunteer for this organization regularly, and I can see first-hand the amazing work they are doing bringing freedom and a safe home for girls who have suffered so much. Freedom doesn’t just mean not having a physical oppressor. It also means freedom of the heart and soul, to live a life of courage, purpose, and love.
