We simply cannot believe what an incredible, generous community that you are. We have been totally overwhelmed with how you are giving to make a real difference.
Last week, we shared with you the opportunity to lock arms with our friends Christine Caine, Bianca Olthoff, & A21, a global anti-human trafficking organization, to provide critical care for refugees in crisis. We announced a fundraising goal of $25,000 to provide a Freedom Container that will give refugees the chance to get hydrated, clean their clothes, and shower on their long, dark journey.
This week, we chatted with Bianca Olthoff, A21’s Chief Storyteller, to hear more about her experience visiting the front lines of the refugee crisis in Greece. Regarding the change she has seen happen through the aid provided to over a quarter-million refugees through A21, Bianca said:
“It has shifted from an abyss of darkness to an oasis of light and hope.”

We set a goal of raising $25,000 by the end of Giving Tuesday, December 1st, and you guys did it! We are so grateful for the way God provided through women rallying #TogetherforRefugees. Now there will be a new Freedom Container on the island of Samos, Greece where more than 81,000 refugees have passed through.
But your chance to impact refugees is not over.
If you desire to do something this Giving Tuesday that will directly give hope, care, and aid to some of the most vulnerable women and children refugees, donate what you can to A21. All funds raised go directly to meeting these needs.
We hope by making an impact that we reach to the ends of the earth for God’s glory and for the good of others, especially for those in need. Thank you for your support!
