Cheers! The Abolitionists
Today Renee and I are cheering for a cause we believe in.
It makes our stomach churn and is uncomfortable to talk about. BUT it is too important NOT to bring your attention to it.
What is this epidemic? Child sex trafficking.
Today we are cheering for The Abolitionists Movie and the heroes fighting for these children.
There are over two million enslaved children forced into the sex industry. This is a story about their rescue and the team’s exploits as they investigate and liberate enslaved children from around the world.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
Save The Children | The Abolitionist Movie
On December 10th, 2013 Special Agent Tim Ballard turned in his Homeland Security badge and resigned from his employment with the United States government. He had spent over a decade rescuing children from child sex tourism both domestically and overseas.
These children constitute over 90% of the children lost to child sex slavery and he could do nothing to help them while in the employment of the US government.
Renee and I had the life-changing opportunity to watch “The Abolitionists” a couple months ago. We sat next to the heroes who were risking their lives on the screen. Watching their faces during the movie and seeing how committed they are to this cause was life-changing for us.
We knew we wanted to help but we didn’t know how. Until now.
WE CAN ALL DO SOMETHING.
The Abolitionists is a movie that will bring this desperate problem to the attention of the masses. But only if the masses go and see the movie.
On May 16th, 2016 The Abolitionists is being released in limited theaters.
Help fill movie theaters! Share the movie with your friends, family, coworkers and community.
If enough people buy tickets, more theaters will open up and more people will join the fight. We need to send a message to Hollywood that this should be a top priority for people and governments around the world.
Educate yourself on Operation Underground Rescue and their mission to rescue these lost children.
We need every single person to help end this.
