Today is June 1st, so it is officially the halfway point of the two-month Tread on Trafficking project I’m doing for the fantastic organization, Love146. So far, my team (The Love Warriors) has raised $8,365.54 to stop sex trafficking, which is more than halfway to our goal of $15,000.
If you recall, my personal goal for the two-month stretch was to walk 100 miles, raise $500, and hopefully (in consequence) drop 20 pounds. I figured the 20 pounds would be the hardest part of that equation, but that’s actually the only part that is on track at the halfway point.
As it stands, I have done 40 miles, raised $100, and lost 10 pounds. So, that’s 40%, 20%, and 50% of the way to my goals, respectively. My donations so far have been (very generous!) fixed amounts, rather than per mile, so I’m having a hard time getting motivated to crank out the miles. I am determined to reach my goal of 100 miles, but honestly, that doesn’t matter to me as much as reaching the $500 goal, because that is really the part that is going to make a difference in the lives of these exploited and abused children.
So, I am reaching out again to ask you to consider giving a donation to this worthy cause, which will help me reach my goal, and more importantly, help save these young lives. Donating is easy through the Tread on Trafficking site, and you can complete the transaction online HERE on my donation page.
If you’re on the fence about donating, be sure to read the Love146 “Love Story” – about how the organization got its name. You can read about girl #146 here: http://love146.org/love-story
