Fight For Them

Recently we were contacted by some of our friends and collages to help be apart of this cause to fight human trafficking. Knowing about the epidemic of human trafficking and the horrible evil happening to women and children across the globe, without hesitation we jumped on board with them.Feeling paralyzed by the weight of such a global crisis and thinking what could we do in the face of something so terrible and so far reaching? The founder Mindy Greaves, of the Fight for Them Campaign, saw the effects of human trafficking first hand while living overseas and was moved to act.

She says, “I can’t do everything, but I must do something.”376092_584248951598994_1413779800_n

Mindy founded Fight for Them which makes beautiful handcrafted jewelry. Every piece of jewelry has one “pearl of hope” as well as the initials of a victim that has been rescued out of trafficking. When jewelry is purchased, 100% of the profits go directly to three organizations working in Southeast Asia to rescue, counsel, and rehabilitate girls from the sex trade: IHH InternationalShe Rescue Home, and Zoe.

These would make great gifts and daily reminders of those who are living lives of hope and freedom after such bondage.

WHY WE FIGHT

My name is Mindy Greaves and I am the founder of the “Fight for Them” campaign. I am a mommy to 3 small children and my husband and I know that sometime in our future we will adopt another daughter.  While my husband was stationed in Guam, we were able to see the devastation of human trafficking in Southeast Asia firsthand.

There are 27 million victims of human trafficking.  32 billion dollars a year are made off their bodies and over half of them are children.  Every 30 seconds another victim is captured. 

The idea that our future daughter could face these tragedies placed an extreme heaviness on me.  While researching I read this quote, “Evil prevails when good men do nothing.”  I knew that to cower from this giant would be to fail the one who had no voice. This resonated in me and I knew there had to be something that even I, a stay at home mom with a heavy heart, could do. 

I felt compelled to fight for every victim of human trafficking the way I would fight for my own children.  I had this burden for a reason, not to be pushed away but to draw me to a place of urgency, a place that would compel me to fight.  From that moment on I have had a fight in me that cannot be hindered.  I may not be able to do everything but I MUST do something.

I am inviting you to join the fight.

Hey! It’s just me! Don’t you just love it when someone calls out your name.. after rolling in tables throwing on table cloths, dragging in bucket of flowers and setting up a workshop. Only to look up and “snap” your messy image is frozen in time. Well at least it’s something we can always look back an laugh at.
