Celebrate the Spirit of Giving this Holiday Season

December 14, 2017 Dragonfly

The Dragonfly Home is grateful to celebrate the generous holiday season, kicked off by #GivingTuesday on November 28th. In the midst of holiday shopping, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, we encourage you to take a break from the holiday shopping and give back to local organizations with your time, lending your voice to a cause, or donating to an organization you believe in.  

Show your love for human trafficking survivors this holiday season by making a tax-deductible donation to The Dragonfly Home, and help us reach our goal of raising $25,000 by the end of the year.

I am the Content Creation Coordinator for The Dragonfly Home, and I have seen the impact of a monthly partnership and the many ways it changes human trafficking survivors’ lives. Monthly partnerships allow The Dragonfly Home to transport survivors to safety, cover the cost of medical bills, provide the survivors with temporary housing, and much more. It is not uncommon for survivors of human trafficking and their children to come to The Dragonfly Home with little to nothing. The simple donation of a backpack, blanket or school supplies helps us provide survivors and their children with basic necessities they often lack.

I have also witnessed first-hand what a great impact volunteering a little bit of time has done for helping survivors of human trafficking. If you are interested in getting involved with The Dragonfly Home but aren’t sure of the area that you would like to volunteer, or if you even have the right skill sets to be useful- don’t fret. Team Dragonfly is made up of an incredibly diverse group with a common passion to assist survivors of human trafficking. 

Your participation in our year-end giving campaign helps survivors of human trafficking across the nation.

Because giving is one of the most genuine forms of showing love and care, we ask that you evaluate who you are giving to and what you are giving. Giving does not always come with a price tag. Sometimes the greatest gifts you can give is in the form of special attention and time well spent. Other times, a gift or donation is exactly what someone needs.

We ask that you give back to your community by partnering with The Dragonfly Home in stopping human trafficking in our community and nation-wide. If you believe a donation would be the most effective way for you to partner with us, know that your donation will be used to directly impact survivors lives. Your support of the Dragonfly Home gives survivors of human trafficking access to safe shelter, food and clothing, medical and dental services, mental health counseling, education and employment assistance, and legal assistance.

We appreciate your generous giving, as it plays a vital role in helping survivors of human trafficking regain control of their lives and step onto the path to a future of freedom.
