October was a busy month with the #adaynhershoes campaign. The idea was to wear heels for a day and to donate to our Restore Home for survivors of human trafficking. We saw people from all over the world participate with photos coming in from abolishionists in Australia, UK, USA, Romania and even Spain.
Our goal for this campaign was to raise awareness about human trafficking through generating conversations and also to raise funds for our very first Restore Home and Community Care services for survivors of human trafficking.
Many of the girls who manage to escape trafficking situations have no place to go. Often, a family member has been involved in them being trafficked and, as a result, it is unsafe for them to return home. #adayinhershoes raised much needed funds to provide a safe place for these courageous survivors to live, restore and become independent.
We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who wore heels, donated or sponsored someone in the #adayinhershoes campaign. You have helped to create a safe environment for survivors to live.
We especially want to thank Jason Kelaart, who was our top fundraiser in the campaign. He encouraged his friends to donate on his #dayinhershoes fundraising page. He told his friends he would wear heels and a skirt if he raised more than $1000. His friends were up to the challenge and made it all happen, all whilst raising funds for the Restore Home. Thanks Jason!
