We’d like to congratulate one of our Pioneer members: Caitlin Crane.
Caitlin runs a non-profit called just1. It’s a world-changing operation — they raise money to build safe houses that provide shelter for girls escaping from human trafficking.
To hear some of the stories of these trafficked girls, and the way one of these shelters and just a little bit of help can turn their lives around—it's really inspiring!
It’s truly a great thing that we have people out there like Caitlin. People that see a worthwhile challenge, and charge full steam ahead, changing lives in the process.
So Caitlin had the opportunity to raise TWENTY THOUSAND dollars and have that MATCHED by a private donor. That FORTY THOUSAND DOLLARS would effectively pay for MOST of a shelter in Kenya.
Again, these buildings provide an escape for dozens of girls. That’s hard for our minds to fathom. One of these shelters can conceivably save the life of someone. Dozens of someones. Let that sink in. That’s real impact.
Caitlin had her work cut out for her, and it was inspiring to watch as she plugged away at it, day after day, climbing this huge mountain of fundraising.
Well… just a few days ago she announced: all twenty thousand dollars was raised, meaning a donation of FORTY THOUSAND dollars to building a shelter in Kenya.
Absolutely inspiring Caitlin. Way to go!
