A quick internet search revealed these 55 items priced at $27:

Commemorative Elvis mug, Hamilton Beach blender, Justin Bieber T-shirt, poker supplies, LEGO car set, printer cartridge, human anatomy model, child’s halloween costume, hop ball, IPhone case, canvas shoes, MAC foundation, infant knit hat, fitness DVD, Little Pony set, Lightening McQueen lunchbox, Fast and the Furious DVD set, Genesis Atomizer, square foot of granite countertop, LeapFrog book, Hyundai polo shirt, clutch purse, patterned sweater, black skirt, all-weather boots, cycling gloves, Mario Kart gumballs, custom designed basketball socks, butterfly wall hanging, Norelco electric shaver, Shrek face mask, “cheap” prom dress, jean jacket, bluetooth headset, Harley Davidson jacket patch, custom rubber stamp, knit scarf with pockets, glass vase, interlock hitch ball, party decor kit, Blood Money Blu Ray, giraffe t-shirt, Spanish Bible, a potted Mexican cactus, “slimming shirt” for men, cake icing kit, hip hop hat, retractable razor blade, white salon towels, engine coolant, Kindle carry case, college football commemorative spatula (what?), duck rillette microwave dinner, child’s cowboy hat, and the ever-popular “Mickey Mouse in a Spiderman Costume” action figure.

Here’s my point:

55 people could spend $27 to buy any one of the above-listed items…

OR

55 people could give $27 and a trafficked woman could be reunited with her family.
She would receive the opportunity for a fresh start on life.

I’m going to be begging all month long. You might as well give $27 now…
and then get started asking 54 other people to do the same! 🙂

NightLight is currently trying to send home 13 women. YOU can help!

 

Ready? Set?

EXPLOIT MY BIRTHDAY!!!

Fifth Annual Birthday Fundraiser

If you’re not sure why these women need money to go home, read one of their stories, but don’t you dare just read it and close your browser with a sigh. I don’t share any of this so you can be perversely entertained. I’M ASKING YOU TO HELP! GIVE $27 or MORE!
