Over 25 million people are suffering from human trafficking worldwide, leaving many survivors with inadequate resources for dealing with trauma, abuse, and addiction. Despite these odds, Worthwhile Wear offers hope and a way for everyone to be a part of the solution.
Now, through July 30, everyone everywhere is invited to walk, bike, run, swim or even kayak to support survivors of human trafficking in Worthwhile Wear’s national “Act Challenge.”
For every mile logged at WorthwhileWear.org, Act Challenge sponsors will make a donation of $2.79 per mile (as of the date of publication) that helps provide safe housing and restorative programming to survivors of human trafficking in America. The Act Challenge is a free event and is open to all ages and abilities.
Schools, businesses, gyms, churches, and even other organizations are capitalizing on the opportunity this event offers. Educate students, clients, and colleagues on the issue of human trafficking, and then host a walk/jog/ride to make a positive impact in the life of someone affected by human trafficking. Each mile logged by anyone becomes a donation of $2.79 to support US-based survivors!
This year’s Act Challenge goal is to complete 30,000 miles by July 30, “World Day Against Human Trafficking.” Join in raising awareness about the issue of human trafficking and help expand housing capacity and outreach programs for human trafficking survivors by logging miles today.
To help human trafficking survivors, follow these steps:
Track miles while walking, running, biking, swimming, kayaking, etc.
Record completed miles on the submission form at worthwhilewear.org. Miles may be submitted every day, now through 7/30.
Share about the Act Challenge on social media with the hashtag #ActWorthwhile and help raise greater awareness.
