About 10 Year Anniversary

Ten years ago, a group of friends and I decided to celebrate celebrate Independence Day weekend a little differently and climbed Mt. Rainier in an effort to raise both awareness and funds to fight human trafficking.  We called it Climb for Captives. 

Fast forward ten years and this small effort has grown into a movement, with one of those friends founding and leading Rescue:Freedom International, one of the largest after-care providers of rescued women and children in the world. 

This issue of trafficking is daunting, complex, and evil. However, it is not the injustice that drives us; it is the magnitude of hope. 

On July 30-31, we are celebrating the 10-year anniversary by climbing Mt. Hood with the same original group of friends and a bunch of new friends to continue our work of doing what we love to fight what we hate. We are hoping to cross the $1 million mark of dollars raised in this ten year period. 

Whether you can give $5 or $5,000 - know that every penny will help change lives for ever. Thank you for joining me on this adventure!

Here’s a glimpse of what your support can accomplish:

$38/month - Give one woman or child safe-housing for a month.
$167/month - Give one woman or child safe-housing and holistic care for a month.
$2,000 - Give one woman or child safe-housing and care for a year.
$5,000 - Provide a rescued girl with the opportunity to pursue a college education or vocational training.
