We need be transparent: Love146’s need is especially critical right now. We’ve determined that it’s not the right time for us to spend additional funds and focus by hosting a gala in 2024. There are more children in need of our help than ever in our organization’s history. So we’re here to ask: Will you invest in this work to end child trafficking – even without the wining and dining?

None of the heels. None of the small talk. All of the love.

Location: Your Couch

You can not join us no matter where you are. Dinner will not take place around 7pm, and no one will take the microphone to give speeches at 8pm.

We’ve hosted over a dozen galas in the past decade, and they’ve been a blast, but this year we’re taking a break. We’ve heard over the years from supporters that they would prefer their gala ticket price go directly to helping children and not to fancy meals. We’ve heard from people located across the country who are disappointed they couldn’t travel to attend our event. We’ve heard from introverts who wish they could show their support without making small talk. This Not a Gala is for you…

THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END

of child trafficking.

The phrase “human trafficking” was introduced decades ago with relatively few people tracking the issue. But today, many of us know about this horrific crime. The number of reports about children being trafficked is skyrocketing. It can seem like the issue is getting worse as new stories are unearthed. But the more deeply we understand the issue of child trafficking, the closer we are to ending it.

“It always seems impossible until it's done.”

We need to stop trafficking before it happens.

YOU matter for children.

The story Behind this Photo...

When we first met Emilia*, she was waving and calling to us from inside the fence of the government shelter, “Take me to the Round Home now, please, now!” Over and over again. All we could promise her was, “we’ll come back for you.” Emilia had heard of Love146, and was asking to come to our safe home. When paperwork was processed, she joined us. She came into our care in the Philippines at age 13, after being trafficked for sex.

Emilia has a huge personality. She’s driven, high energy, and is a local special olympics medal winner.

This photo was taken on a vacation away from the home, to Taal Volcano. Earlier on the day this photo was taken, Emilia (along with her friends) rode horseback up the volcano you see in the background of this photo.
