TalyaWren: a zine project is hosting a “Give-Away” for those who wouldn’t mind spreading the word about their art project/fundraising efforts. A Moleskine Passions: Music Journal, an iTunes card, and a composition book is the “give-away” in question. The kind of information they (we) want to share?
An estimated 100,000 U.S. children are commercially exploited sexually each year. The average age for children (female and male) entering into prostitution and pornography is 12-14, plenty are younger. Sex trafficking is no respecter of home-life, geographic location, socio-economic status, gender, sexual orientation, or ethnicity.
Door To Grace is a Portland, Oregon-based movement whose mission is to “restore life to rescued children.” Please visit their site—DoorToGrace.org—for further literature on what compels them and how they are responding to the needs of child survivors, like providing a holistic approach to their care.
TalyaWren: A Zine Project has created a humble but wonderful zine-sized thank-you card for those who have helped contributed to the zine artistically and/or monetarily. TalyaWren would love to share a zine with those who are moved to help them help Door To Grace (w/ $10+) donations. See the “raising funds” page on their site—talyawren.wordpress.com—for how you can give and receive. You may also visit the site for further information on the zine project and Door To Grace.
Please, not only give to this cause, but share it as well! The collection for donations in TalyaWren‘s project name will be June 12th, but they (we) hope you will continue to take the opportunities to be active in the prevention of sex trafficking and the provision of resource and healing of its survivors.
