I share my heart often about the issue of modern day child sex slavery. You've read stories, seen videos, and you have probably seen human trafficking on the news too. It's an overwhelming problem that faces our generation. It's uncomfortable, it's heart-breaking, it's dark. But let's not turn away. Seriously, don't.
“You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know.”
Today we can act on their behalf.
I've been asked by The Exodus Road, a nonprofit empowering rescue, to help fuel investigations for active cases of pedophilia in Malaysia*. The undercover team there needs about $35/night to conduct local investigations, and the blogging team I serve with at The Exodus Road wants to send these men out for an entire month, 30 nights. The funds will go to the travel, lodging, and investigative expenses. We will literally be "hiring" an investigator, on our behalf, to go look for children and gather evidence needed to put pedophiles behind bars.
Watch this Exodus Road one-minute video: We are Watching. An undercover operative records footage from the streets of a red light district. The girl in the film is an estimated 13 years of age. What really gets me is that moment she tries to walk another way-see his grip.
Would you join the fight to protect? We have only days (through June 2nd!) to raise funds needed to send this trained team of operatives. I'm asking each of us to donate $15 to this cause. Giving can be as simple as pulling out your phone.
