- Garage Sale Campaign
Freedom Firm has Rescued over 220 girls out of sex slavery! But rescuing them isn't enough. These girls need someone to walk with them through their process of Restoration. Finding self-worth and becoming independent is the only way these beautiful girls will not end up forced back into a brothel. With so many young women to follow up with, we need your help to provide them with counseling, medical care, education and job training. Our goal is to have Garage Sales all over the United States this year raise $5,000 to help meet these needs while also raising awareness in their communities about modern-day slavery and what Freedom Firm is doing to fight it! Join us with a sale of your own!
