Yesterday, I was at Sears buying some of the remaining items we need for the Kern County Daughter Project Shelter. Firstly, the people at Sears gave me a discount when they heard what it was for. Thank you! Then, the couple behind me in line asked what all the items were for. When I told them we are opening a shelter for young girls who have been trafficked and abused, the man began to tear up and the woman handed me her credit card saying she wanted to pay $100 of the $417 bill. This couple, complete strangers, immediately wanted to help when they heard about the injustices these girls experience and how we will be caring for them. Wow.
I am asking all of you to do the same and help with the $317 remainder. You can give right now at http://www.daughterproject.org/give-1#give-2 and choose the local shelter or mail a check to:
