I am a mother of two beautiful boys with another baby boy on the way. How lucky am I! There is nothing sweeter in this world than your little boy grabbing for your hand while you’re out for a walk, or running into your room just to tell you he loves you. Or picking me out of a crowd just to cuddle. Becoming a mother is the greatest joy. As a mother there is nothing you wouldn’t do for your child. There are many things parents hope for their children’s future; good friends, a kind heart, motivation to do good, receiving a good education, meeting the love of their life etc. However, my strongest desire is to provide safety and protection.
When I heard about “Operation Underground Railroad” a non profit organization who saves children from the evils of the sex trade industry worldwide, I knew I wanted to be a part of the rescue. There are over 2 million children being traded as sex slaves and many of them are being sold by their own parents and at the earliest age of 2. These are statistics that are so disgusting that we don’t want to know more because it hurts. But covering our eyes isn’t the solution. Brining change is.
Four mothers, including myself, have felt eagerness to help, so we decided to put on a local 5k Rescue Run and Raffle after party, to help raise money for one rescue mission. The cost of one rescue mission is roughly $25,000 and could save up to 25 children from a life of slavery. Our Rescue Run is an event for the whole family. You don’t have to be an avid runner to complete the race. The course is stroller friendly. But if you aren’t a runner and you still want to participate the after party is for you. We have bouncy houses, a DJ, local performances, food trucks, cake walks, glitter tattoos, a HUGE raffle, where items like an APPLE watch are being raffled. The best part, 100% of all proceeds are donated to Operation Underground Railroad.
For the Rescue Run, we partnered with Mommi, a company we love because of their desire to help mothers sustain a healthy pre and post pregnancy. Their products provide the appropriate nutrients specific for each trimester. When they heard about our cause, they immediately reached out. So today is your lucky day! For every MOMMI FAN who registers for the Resuce Run race, enter coupon code MOMMISHAKER and you will receive one free Mommi Protein shaker bottle! This bottle is very sleek, modern and functional, that, in fact my husband steals mine all the time. You will love it.
This Mother’s Day season, give yourself the gift of saving a child’s life. Sign up for the RESCUE RUN today! Come to run, or come for the party. If you live out of state but would still like to contribute, follow the link to our donation page.
I am so grateful for people who stand up against evil and play a small part in this amazing cause. Join with us and help bring one child home. Again, our goal is to fund one mission so we hope to raise $25,000!
