We need you to join the front lines of the fight against human trafficking. The Exodus Road's Search & Rescue team is poised to impact the lives of hundreds of young women and girls, sold into sex slavery throughout the most impoverished areas in rural India. We call them BRAVO Team, and they need our partnership to continue their rescue work on the front lines. This team is comprised entirely of nationals and includes female social workers who are present during every raid and provide follow-up with survivors. Here's how you can help:
1. Become a BRAVO Team Member. A donation of $35/monthly can sponsor one night of local investigations (you can sponsor more than one night, as well!). You may not be able to storm brothel doors, but you can send someone who can. All missions have strict oversight and protocols and all work is done in partnership with local police partners. To date, we've worked with police to deliver 336 girls and boys from sex slavery in India alone. By joining BRAVO Team, you'll receive a welcome packet and updates throughout the year, specific to BRAVO Team's work, as well as other teams in the Search & Rescue Program.
We are looking for FIFTY more monthly BRAVO Team Members by June 2016.
2. Fundraise for a BRAVO Team Need. Rally your own friends and online community to either join you in monthly giving (if you get 6 of your friends to sponsor a night with you, you will have sponsored an entire week of investigations monthly!) or one-time giving. We have several goals on the sidebar for you to shoot for, or create one you think you could meet! Setting up fundraising pages only takes about 2 minutes.
3. Give a One-Time Gift. Of any amount. Every bit helps, and no gift is too small. 100% of the proceeds from this campaign go directly to our program, helping find and free slaves (minus transaction fees). Just click the donate now button.
We are looking for $8,000 in ONE-TIME Gifts to help cover practical expenses for BRAVO Team.
4. SHARE, SHARE, SHARE! Because this campaign is a social media one, would you please help us by sharing this campaign, especially with a personal note from yourself, to your online community? Before people ACT, they must KNOW, and social sharing is something everyone can do.
