Last October, we raised nearly $800 to help Syrian refugees by selling baked goods. Now we're hoping to raise even more to help put an end to human trafficking. Approximately 2 million children worldwide have been forced into living as sex slaves, many of them being raped 10 to 15 times per night. As a mother of four daughters (ages 2 to 11), knowing that more than 90% of these victims are girls makes me truly sick.
I am asking my children, our neighbors, and those in our community to give a little bit of what we have to make a big difference for those victims. My daughters and I have been working around the clock harvesting from our apple trees and grape vines to make fresh, homemade grape jelly and applesauce. The concord grapes and apples were on our vines and trees just a couple days ago, and now they can be in your home and tummy!
100% of any amounts you give will go to Operation Underground Railroad. O.U.R. was created by former Navy SEALS who wanted to take action against human trafficking. In just a couple of years they've become one of the leading organizations fighting against human trafficking, and their operations have resulted in hundreds of arrests and hundreds more children freed from sex slavery. They are truly angels on earth, but O.U.R. needs funds to continue their noble efforts. That's where you come in! Donate today and help make a difference. Suggested donation amounts are as follows, but please feel free to give more if you can (or less if you need to):
Concord Grape Jelly - $5 for 1/2 pint (SOLD OUT)
Concord Grape Jelly - $8 for 1 pint (SOLD OUT)
Applesauce - $5 for 1 pint (SOLD OUT)
Applesauce - $8 for 2 pints (SOLD OUT)
Lots of TLC has gone into each and every jar. To make one jar of jelly, for example, hundreds of grapes were harvested, cleaned and de-stemmed, steamer juiced for several hours, cooked into homemade jelly on the stove, sealed for freshness to last about a year, and then labeled with a hand-drawn label by our oldest daughter. Our daughters helped with each step along the way and will hand-deliver them to you anywhere in the Utah or Salt Lake Valleys! If you live outside of our area, you are still very welcome to donate but unfortunately I won't be able to ship any jars to you.
We can guarantee a fantastic product and that every dime you donate will go straight to making a difference at O.U.R. Thank you for your generosity!
