As part of her ongoing efforts toward increasing awareness of issues of global importance, Dianna Agron recently visited the Somaly Mam Foundation in Cambodia. According to the Foundation's website:
"The Somaly Mam Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to ending modern slavery and empowering its survivors as part of the solution. Human trafficking, a multi-billion dollar industry, is the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world. With an estimated two million women and children sold into sexual slavery each year, it is a global crisis that must be stopped."
In the past, we have raised over $9,000 for another of Dianna's favorite non-profit organizations, Wildlife Waystation. In honor of Dianna's birthday, we have decided to extend our efforts toward helping to raise much-needed funds for The Somaly Mam Foundation. The website notes that it costs roughly $3,000 "to rescue and recover one victim of the commercial sex industry and help her to build a life of dignity and independence." Please take a moment to note that this is the amount required to assist only ONE woman out of the many women that the Somaly Mam Foundation aids in fostering a better future for themselves and their families.
As such, our starting goal for this campaign is $6,000 – enough to help two women (long-term) through the efforts of the Somaly Mam Foundation. Please help us reach our goal by way of donations and by spreading the word about our cause. We thank you for your continued support. We also have a lot of great products for sale so check out our store at http://www.PLLR.storenvy.com. Proceeds will benefit the Somaly Mam Foundation.
