#GIVINGTUESDAYNOW | A GLOBAL DAY OF GIVING AND UNITY
On May 5, 2020 we come together as a global community…
To give. To help. To thank. To heal.
#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of generosity and unity, a day to come together and give back in response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19, no matter who or where we are.
Help New Life Refuge Ministries support the children we serve and bring other child survivors of human (sex) trafficking to the Home of Hope to heal.
Drive New Life Refuge #EndChildTrafficking
The fight to educate and end child sex trafficking is a community battle. Sames Ford, New Life Refuge Ministries and KIII TV are partners raising awareness and funds in support of the victims of this crime; and their families. Come out and test drive a vehicle at Sames Ford Corpus Christi and Sames will donate $25 to New Life Refuge Ministries. It’s a simple way to raise funds and awareness.
You must be 18 years old or older in order to test drive a vehicle. #
Thank you to all partners in the community for helping us with this event.
Host an Event For Benefit of New Life Refuge Ministries
Here’s some ideas!
Do you love crafts?
Bake sale/Chili cook-off
Craft sale/rummage sale
A luncheon on the topic of DMST where we come as keynotes. This can be held at your church or a local hotel/conference center.
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.
In Loving Memory of Mariza Angeles Smith who’s Legacy of Love is truly dynamic! She 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. Mariza always felt, that one dollar, affordable by everyone, is the best vehicle to allow one to be aware, advocate, and certainly take action.
How does a Dollar become a Dynamic?
1) Make a collection container.
2) 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.
3) Ask the person to, in turn, “spread the word about the issue and need for housing,”– ask others to begin to collect.
4) The simple dollar over and over becomes the “Dynamic Dollar!”
5) Remember: a “decline of a dollar” for your jug is not a reflection of you personally. Keep plugging away!
Party with a Purpose
What is a Party with a Purpose?
It is an informal gathering of your friends you learn more about the issue Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking (DMST) and what New Life Refuge Ministries (NLRM) is doing to fight this crime and help those who have been victimized by it.
Why host a Party with a Purpose?
It is a great way to bring awareness to the issue of domestic minor sex trafficking (DMST) and the need for restorative. By hosting a Party with a Purpose you will be part of the solution to end child sex trafficking by educating your friends and family on the issue. You and your guests will learn how to keep the children and youth in your lives safe from traffickers. The Party with a Purpose will give your guests a greater awareness of a nationwide growing problem which could affect a child in their lives and the future of our country’s youth.
