Entering into a Difficult Space with Hope
Recently, our partner non-profit, Traffick911, posted this powerful photo and story. We wanted to share it with you so you knew the kind of work your candle purchase is supporting. We are honored and proud to support Traffick911's team of advocates as they serve young survivors in need.
"Recently, one of our advocates responded to a crisis call for a 13 year old girl recovered from trafficking in North Texas. The Traffick911 advocate dropped everything and drove to physically be with her, bringing food and a new set of comfortable clothes. Entering into a difficult space with hope. ⠀
With tears in her eyes, she said she doesn't remember the last time she received a gift. She is safe today, but after the trauma of her recent experiences, she likely doesn’t feel safe.
This is why our specialized team responds to each recovery within 60 minutes: we establish what is called “felt safety,” helping them feel secure during chaotic moments, by gifting them with a soft teddy bear, blanket, and other necessities to mark a new beginning."
