Dynamic Dollar

In Loving Memory of Mariza Angeles Smith. Her Legacy of Love is truly dynamic! Mariza devised the Dynamic Dollar Campaign as a means to raise awareness to develop advocacy, and to take action on the issue of child sex trafficking. She always felt, that one dollar, affordable by everyone, is the best vehicle to allow one to be aware, advocate, and certainly take action

Courage Coin

Half of the profits from each “Courage Coin” pendant purchased from Susann’s Custom Jewelers will go to New Life Refuge Ministries’s goal of helping a rescued children shine bright again.

What's Gift Cards for Goodies?

Our “Gift Cards for Goodies” has two meanings for the child survivors of trafficking healing at our campus. Gift cards are a reward for healthy choices and behavior and of course, they can then pick out tangible “goodies” with the gift cards. The program provides recognition for the child survivors when they hit a milestone, help another student out, grow in leadership, go above and beyond, or are just “caught doing something good”.

How does a Dollar become Dynamic?

1) Contact New Life Refuge Ministries to complete your For Benefit of Fundraising commitment before raising money. Call 361-946-6331 or EMail:

2.) Make a collection container. (Graphics/template provided)

3) What you simply say to people in your office, people in any group, and / or to people you meet: “Please give $1.00 to help stamp out human trafficking.” That’s all that is needed. If they have questions give a simple explanation about New Life Refuge Home of Hope for underage survivors.

4) Ask the person to, in turn, “spread the word about the issue and need for housing,”– ask others to begin to collect.

5) The simple dollar over and over becomes the “Dynamic Dollar!”

6) Remember: a “decline of a dollar” for your jug is not a reflection of you personally. Keep plugging away!
