the blind project: Time to save the world.

16 Mar

After having dinner with a friend last night, I was made aware of a really great and fashionable cause called The Blind Project. This project entails a group of people working to stop the horrifying sex trade of women and children in southeast Asia. Along with various other partnerships and projects, they have created a sustainable style brand that helps to provide employment and a second chance for sex trafficking victims. Many of them are thrust back into the evil world of sex trafficking due to lack of resources and low economic means.

To donate or learn more go to The Blind Project’s Website: http://www.theblindproject.com/

And their blog: http://theblindproject.com/blog/

Makes you realize that your Starbucks order getting messed up this morning, a pimple on your face, a run in your hose, or a fight with a friend doesn’t seem like such a big deal now, huh?

We all need to do our part to have compassion, making the world a better place.

These girls who started the project  are an excellent example of the power of ideas, the power of the individual, and the power of a good heart.
