BEAUTY FROM ASHES CHILD OF GOD CD:  Use your Christmas buying power to fight human slavery.  What better gift than the Beauty From Ashes (BFA)  private label CD, Child of God, produced by Music for the Soul?  We've reduced the price and 100% of the proceeds will go to provide specialized programs for victims of commercialized sexual exploitation & trafficking.   The 10 song CD: Child of God, Not Too Far From Here, Time For a Breakdown, Every Single Tear, Somebody's Daughter, Keep Breathing, In the Image of God, Binder of the Broken, No One Can Love Me Like You Do & Twenty Three is available for minimum donation of $20 + $5 shipping.  For more information and to order:  CLICK HERE  

CAR NEEDED FOR SURVIVOR:  Thanks to our generous partners, we have raised $785 for the human sex trafficking survivor, single mother, that we told you about 7 weeks ago.  However, we sill need another $715 to purchase the $1500 car for her to use as transportation.  Will you please consider giving a tax deductible donation today so that we can provide to her a car for Christmas?  Any amount will be appreciated and it all adds up!  If you have a well running vehicle that you would like to donate, please contact Julie Shematz.
