So, one of the visions I had when I realized I wanted to move forward with starting triFABB was to get local charities involved. I think one of the things that’s so powerful about the “blog” and “social media” platforms is the ability to connect and reach people.
And with so many amazing bloggers in this area, why not use our platforms to connect and reach people for good and the benefit of our local community?
Well, I am SO excited that we are going to have a featured charity at our launch party on Thursday at Fab’rik and we’re going to be holding a small drive for them.
The charity is Transforming Hope Ministries out of Durham, North Carolina. Transforming Hope is a local non-profit that was started last year to raise money and awareness to stop human trafficking.
AND, in July of 2012, Transforming Hope opened central North Carolina’s FIRST safe home for young girls who have been rescued out of the sex trafficking industry.
How amazing is that?
It’s such a huge issue that is so often overlooked – and it’s an issue that desperately needs our attention.
So, this Thursday, if you are attending our launch party, you are encouraged, but by NO MEANS required, to bring an item for Emma’s Home – the name of the recently opened Safe Home.
Emma’s Home has a Target List of items they need that you can look through. ALSO, Emma’s home has an ongoing need of some general toiletry essentials for the girls:
- cleaning supplies
- shaving cream & disposable razors
- disposable cameras
Transforming Hope is an incredible organization that’s doing an amazing things by rescuing these young girls out of such a horrible industry. Thank you so much for supporting them!
You can connect with Transforming Hope on the Web, Facebook, and Twitter.
If you have questions about Transforming Hope, our launch party, or triFABB in general, please let us know!
We are SO excited for Thursday! Email us – firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP for the launch party!
