First off, I would like to give my utmost gratitude for all of your generosity and support in helping me to raise much needed funds for victims of sex trafficking. With your support, I am so very proud to say that in 2012, I raised $20,000 and raise another $7,000 in 2013 through the creation of my yoga inspired jewelry line “Karmic Jewels by Nadine, good deeds wearing beads “, as well as some of your repeat donations, you know who you are <3..
Attached, you will find photos of the completed work center for the girls at Sanlaap, as well as the new dorms and the re-done drop in center in Bowbazar. 25 girls have moved into this newly constructed building.
The artisan workshop and vocational training skills center is up and running and producing artisan block printing fabric for The Opportunity Collection in Kolkata India. All of this could not have been done without your support. I know you will enjoy seeing these photos and how your donations were put to use.
My dedication to this cause only gains momentum, as it is unbearable remembering all of the sweet faces from my trip to India and knowing countless numbers of children continue to be preyed upon and robbed of their innocence and childhood.
This weekend, I attended a fundraiser for Puresa Humanitarian, a 501 c 3 charity that provides rescue, medical treatment and rehabilitation for child victims of sex trafficking in the outskirts of Delhi India. I had the pleasure of meeting the founder of Puresa Humanitarian, Giselle Meza, who herself was a victim of this horrendous crime against humanity. I am very
honored to be collaborating with Giselle in this herculean endeavor.
Puresa Humanitarian is in immediate dire need of funds to pay for medical expenses for the girls, which were incurred by the neglect and brutal mistreatment of their captors: those expenses have exceeded $7,000.
Please open your hearts and wallets and visit http://www.puresa.org to donate and learn more about Giselle and how you can help. No amount is too small, and if you feel compelled to go big, she would be forever grateful, an $85,000 donation will finance the construction of a new safe house and will be dedicated and honored by naming the home after your family, foundation or individual name. All contributions are tax deductible.
Girls should never be for sale. Please help and give what you can.
With Deep Gratitude,
