You guys, my birthday wish came true! This has been such an amazing birthday, and it’s all because of you! I wanted to start by thanking each and every one of you who contributed to my birthday fundraiser this year. I am humbled and blown away by the amount of support!
Last week, I announced my 26th birthday campaign with a goal of raising $26,000 for Her Song, one of the anti-human trafficking ministries of the Tim Tebow Foundation, which is specifically focused on survivor care in the United States. With a mission of ending human trafficking, one life at a time, Her Song deploys a holistic approach to survivor care, providing every woman who walks through the doors of their safe homes with not only a safe place to shelter and other physical necessities, but also with counseling, spiritual care, hope and the ability to heal that is so critical to full restoration.
Because of God’s incredible favor and the support of thousands of people, we exceeded that goal in the first TWO DAYS and have now surpassed $208,000+ and STILL GOING! The full restoration of these strong and courageous women requires all of us, an army of supporters, committed to fighting for them. Your incredible support enables us to reach and impact many more lives. What better way to show thanks to you all than by hearing directly from Ali, a Survivor of human trafficking. She wrote the following note:
“I want to thank each and every one of you from the depths of my soul for your generous contributions. I wish there were words to express how profoundly this is going to change someone’s life but there simply aren’t. I am so honored that God has given me the testimony that He has and that you were able to take a glimpse into what He has done in my life. It is hearts like yours that have made this possible. Her Song and TTF have completely changed my life!! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.” – Ali, Her Song Survivor.
Because of you, we are able to bring much-needed shelter, physical and spiritual care, love, joy, purpose, hope, and healing to these courageous, strong, and resilient women! So many of you have so generously climbed into this fight alongside me to help make a meaningful impact in the lives of so many people who need us to speak up for them and fight for them. It sounds so unreachable to impact the estimated 40.3 million lives trapped in human trafficking today but what makes it worth it to me is knowing that even just one life is worth it and deserves us speaking up for them. There are no words to express my appreciation for your love, prayers and support.
