Thank you all for your amazing response to Ann Marie's story. Your prayers, positive energy and words are deeply appreciated. We will keep you posted on the court case and Ann Marie's continuing story.
I want to extend another thank you to Shara Worden of the band My Brightest Diamond. Shara's song "Be Brave" is the song I quoted in my last blog. Shara sent us an email saying that she would like all of the proceeds from the sale of the Be Brave Dear One tee shirt to come to Love146!
In Shara's own words:
"Be Brave, dear one. Be ye changed or be undone. Since I have several friends who are working with non-profits to raise awareness of this reality, and try to help prevent human trafficking, I decided this was a small thing I could do to help. I’ve known the founders of Love146 for 10 years and I trust them. I believe in their work. So I thought for starters, I could make a tee shirt, a little prayer, a hopeful wish for those people who are trapped, to trust that change will come. "
If you would like to purchase this shirt, please visit Ink In Bloom. All proceeds come directly to Love146.
It does "take trust that change will come." Let us work, let us educate ourselves, let us pray, let us Love. Change will come.
