Our Story
I've become uncomfortable with my own life. The life where my daily "problems" are keeping the house clean, making sure my elementary kids get their homework turned in and projects done, attending another meeting, kids arguing, or running late. A few weeks ago I sat on the train with my sister. I stared out the window, lost in my thoughts. I turned to her, "I can't stop thinking about all the suffering. The pain. The needs. Do you realize children as young as four are being sold for sex? Some are sold by their own parents. But what can I do?" I had just recently listened to a podcast about a family that up and moved to Cambodia to help prevent child sex trafficking. I so admired their efforts and contribution. I continued, "I should be doing something. I can't just sit in my comfortable home in the suburbs, running kids here and there and continue ignoring the needs of so many. But it's so overwhelming. I have no idea where to start." And then I found that there was something I could do without moving across the world. Go Jane Give has made it possible for me to be an activist for humanity and raise awareness to the horrendous plight of so many simply by sharing some of my skills. Organizing, purging, and decluttering are so energizing to me. I love knowing everything has a place and that we don't have tremendous excess. (Yet, it still feels like too much.) :) Some nights before I head to bed, I grab a box and see if I can fill it with STUFF that we no longer need, then donate it. I love the thrill of looking around and seeing that we have what we need and it's all in place. I've worked alongside homeowners as we've gotten their kitchens, pantries, bathrooms, basements, and bedrooms dejunked, organized, and calm. I also love to bake. I learned from the best, my mom. I've taken bread making classes from the Bosch Kitchen Center and have spent years baking bread for my family--and have loved passing this on down to my 9 year old son. What does a loaf of bread and organization have to do with any of this? I'll tell you. To anyone (within 25 miles of my home) who makes a minimum donation of $50, in exchange, I offer you 2 hours of organizational and decluttering services in your home or office. And to anyone who makes a minimum donation of $15, my kids and I will bring you a loaf of fresh baked whole wheat or white bread. (Sorry, but you've got to live kind of near me. I can't do this long distance. For those of you who don't know me personally, I'm located in the Saratoga Springs, Utah area and the offer goes to you too!) {EDITED: 04/26/16 I will no longer be able to offer my organizational/decluttering services to new $50+ donations, but the bread offer still stands!} And if $50 or $15 is too much right now, I get it! I ask you to consider donating, even just a dollar or two to this cause to Stop Child Trafficking. Could you go without take-out once this week, pass on downloading a new app or song, or hold off on purchasing a new pair of shoes and donate that amount instead? Will you please help me raise $500? To learn about how your donation will be used, read on: 20 million women and children are trafficked and tortured EVERY YEAR in the sex trade. Prajwala, an internationally recognized nonprofit, has rescued and rehabilitated over 15,600 survivors of sex trafficking and prevented more than 8,000 others from entering the sex trade. When you support Prajwala, you provide educational opportunities, housing, vocational support and recovery tools for sex trade survivors. You also help prevent children from being sold into sex slavery in the most hard-hit areas of India. This topic is uncomfortable, it makes you sick, it makes you want to turn away and unsee what you saw and unhear what you heard. Please friends, let's make a difference in the lives of these women and children who are suffering.
