The Driving Force

This blog has come about because of a deep desire to make a difference in the lives of girls who are trafficked into the sex slave industry around the world. We are about raising awareness of the shocking figures and statistics which show slavery is on the increase and is now more prevelant than ever in our history. It is too easy to be put off by the huge numbers (1.4 million girls and women, 27 million slaves) but we are putting our hand up to do all we can to support those who are stepping out and making a difference! We will be holding get-togethers, cocktail evenings, silent auctions and other fundraising events to both raise awareness and funds. Please join us! It starts with one step...

A very successful night!

We are amazed at the wonderful support of all who attended the evening.  We have raised $4500 to send to A21, enabling them to rescue and restore more girls.  The team did a fabulous job organising the night including set up, bar and food service.  The girls in the kitchen did a wonderful job plating up the donated canapĂ© items - thank you to all those ladies who provided the delicious mini toasts, pastries, slices, tarts, quiches, mini muffins and all the other savouries and sweets.  Our bar staff did a wonderful job, serving over 180 cocktails and mocktails.  The auction items were well contested with everyone getting into the spirit of raising money.

We had a very successful night and pray that the money we will be able to contribute will be extended and multiplied miraculously to save women and girls who would otherwise be trapped and never rescued.  Thank you so much to all our supporters who gave items and to those who attended and contributed.  See you next year and check back in here for other events and updates!

Don't forget to check out the A21 Campaign website and sign up to their newsletter for current events in Greece, Europe and around the world.

It's getting closer - AND we are sold out!!

We are so incredibly excited with the huge support that has been shown for this cause, both from donations and ticket purchases.  We have decided to cap ticket sales at 75 and think that this will be a great number.  We are sold out!  Looking forward to a great night!
