Thank you to Rebecca of Singing in His Name for allowing me to borrow this dress!! It was great for a little outing to the new ice cream/candy shop nearby. It is a really cute place that we’ll probably go to more and more. It reminded me of the old drug stores that served ice cream too.
Freedom’s Promise is a great organization that helps out children who are vulnerable to becoming victims of slavery in Nashville, TN and Cambodia. If you’re asking, “Nashville? What?” You heard right. They help the mentally and physically challenged (as well as girls who come out of forced prostitution and stripping) who often get targeted in sexual exploitation and forced into many things against their wills. In Nashville, they help these kids by using therapy with horses (they get to groom them, go on nature walks, and ride them). In Cambodia they help kids living in poverty who have no education and are liable to become slaves or have already come out of slavery (from being forced to bonded labor, coercion, sexual slavery, etc). They also help them out of forced drug addictions (many children who are forced into prostitution are given drugs so they can be easily abused and remain calm and also some girls become addicted to it to escape the pain). Freedom’s Promise gives sewing lessons to girls, gives them educations in Khmer, teach them English, and try to build real relationships with the girls who have suffered so much harm.
If you’d like me to borrow your clothes to spread awareness against human trafficking and promote modesty, please E-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
