Last year I gave half my salary of $10,000 to One Day’s Wages to fight human trafficking, and I began a campaign to raise $10k more.
Someone just donated the ENTIRE amount left for the campaign, which was $8,085, to reach the goal of $20,000.
My jaw is all over the floor.

Whoever you are, thank you.
Thank God for you.
How are you doing? I hope that you are doing well and enjoying your day so far! I am a fan of your blog, posts and wisdom and just thought I should pop by and say hi! 🙂 I remember you saying that you were giving half of your salary to charity in a post last year, on February 12th, 2012.
Now that the anniversary of this date is coming up, how do you feel? What is the most significant thing that you learned? Are you looking forward to having access to your full income, or is the thought overwhelming at all? I can’t imagine being brave enough to do the sacrifice that you have done! I would truly love to have more insight regarding your experience, if you have a moment to share your thoughts! Thank you so much, have a fantastic day, and take care!
Can I tell you first: thank you for asking me how I’m doing and how my day was. Not enough people ask those simple questions and you’re awesome for doing it. I am well and today is a good day, and thank you for all your kind encouraging words. 🙂
I did indeed give away half my income at the end of last year to fight human trafficking, and began a campaign with the charity One Day’s Wages to raise more money. Please allow me to shamelessly plug that campaign here — you can still contribute any amount that you like. Just scroll to the bottom, and you’ll also see a list of everyone else who’s donated.
Now to answer your questions!

Birthday Campaign to Fight Human Trafficking
Last year I donated half my salary ($10,000) to fight human trafficking.
Today, March 7th, is my birthday. Instead of gifts, I’m asking that you consider donating with me to fight for this cause together ..!
You can donate here to my campaign (scroll to the middle of the page), and all proceeds go directly to fighting human trafficking and sex slavery.
Please consider giving $5, 10, 25, or any amount you’d like!
Here’s what your contribution can do:
- $50 provides one month of education/vocation training for one rescued girl (age ranged from middle school/highschool)
- $37.50 provides one month of Health + Hygiene (Medication, toiletries, medical visits, water) for a rescued girl
- $250 covers the cost of 6 days of aftercare for a trafficked victim
- $500 covers the cost of 7 days of legal advocacy
Thanks for considering. Love y’all!
