Grace to host Destiny Rescue Night on Wednesday
Grace’s women’s basketball team will hold a Black Out in support of non-profit organization Destiny Rescue on Wednesday.
The Lady Lancers are asking all fans to participate in the Black Out by wearing black for the Jan. 16 evening game against Indiana Wesleyan at the Manahan Orthopaedic Capital Center.
The Black Out is to create awareness for child sex trafficking and to raise funds to rescue children through the ministry of Destiny Rescue.
All Crossroads League women’s basketball teams are partnering in the event during the month of January. The goal for each school is to raise $1,500 during the campaign, approximately the amount needed to rescue one child from sex trafficking.
“Black Out” shirts will be sold to fans on game day, and a Destiny Rescue representative will be on site to provide education and information to the teams, campus and community.
About Destiny Rescue (www.destinyrescue.org)
Destiny Rescue is an internationally-recognized Christian non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing children trapped in the sex trade. Our vision is to rescue the sexually exploited and enslaved, restore the abused, protect the vulnerable, empower the poor and be a voice for those who can’t speak up for themselves.
We currently operate our various programs in Thailand, Cambodia, the Philippines and India. We also have offices in three donor nations: United States, Australia and New Zealand.
Since 2011, we’ve rescued over 3,000 children enslaved around the world, helped keep hundreds more from entering the sex trade through our various prevention programs, ensured justice for those who have been wronged, and raised awareness to untold numbers. And we’ll continue to expand to reach even more children in the days ahead!
Destiny Rescue realizes that human trafficking is a global problem. We’re determined to respond to God’s call to set captives free worldwide. Until no more children are sold, forced or coerced into the sex trade, Destiny Rescue is fully committed to fighting for their freedom, their restoration and their futures.
