Our first Women for Women meeting was a Rescue Party benefitting International Justice Mission, a global organization partnering with local justice systems to end violence against people living in poverty. IJM finds enslaved people, brings them to safety, and walks alongside them until they are restored.
We welcomed a special guest, Richard Spalholz, who worked for IJM and has seen firsthand the cruelties of human trafficking.
Our gathering of women raised over $2,000. As well, some women signed up to be a freedom partner, offering monthly support to IJM.
We were excited about that – and even more excited when a generous donor matched our contribution!
This first meeting was a fantastic kickoff to what we hope will be many thousands of dollars raised to benefit women around the world!
