What we’re about…

‘Bag of Change ’ is a cause dedicated to creating CHANGE in the lives of those who are freed from the horrible act of human trafficking.
This is happening right in our backyard, and we are dedicated to help bring dignity and worth back into their precious lives.

Our project creates bags for these individuals, filled with items of necessity contributing to change at the physical, emotional and spiritual level.  All you have to do is decide how many bags to contribute (each are $20) and we will acquire the items, create and deliver the bags on your behalf.  ANY AMOUNT OF CONTRIBUTION HELPS!

*********
Just because you may not see it- doesn't mean it isn't there.... This is happening in our neighborhoods. With our community’s children.  The statistics don’t lie. Human Trafficking annually is an estimated $32 billion industry, with $9.5 billion of that generated in the United States. It may surprise you to know that in the US, an average entry into prostitution for a child victim is 13-14 years old, with their trafficker making anywhere from $150,000 to $200,000 per child each year. Traffickers are not just strangers that kidnap their victims, they can also be parents, relatives or boyfriends. The average trafficker has 4 to 6 girls, each at risk of being forced to perform sexual acts up to 20-48 times a day. Each day, victims are being rescued, however, there is a shortage of resources available to help these victims once they are freed. No one deserves to be traded as a commodity…

And you can help CHANGE that.

Below are some pictures of  bags we put together that went to the Phoenix Dream Center, whose program offers safe refuge and specialized counseling so that victims of sexual exploitation in all its forms can be restored as functioning members of society, equipped to live a healthy independent life.

This little baby inspired me to create infant bags to help the mommies to care for their little ones!
