While this blog is typically chock full of tips and explanations regarding ways in which you can live more comfortably, we have something different to discuss with you today. Design Comfort is teaming up with Operation Underground Railroad in order to raise money with which to rescue kids from human traffickers and to ensure that they are able to resume safe, productive, and enjoyable lives. This is a complicated undertaking, and it is not something that any company or organization can achieve on its own. That is why we are asking you to join the Design Comfort team on December 5th, at 9:00 am, to participate in this fundraising 5K. Additionally, we encourage you to learn more about Operation Underground Railroad here, and to consider other ways in which to get involved in this great cause.
Not On O.U.R. Watch
Operation Underground Railroad, or O.U.R., is an organization dedicated to rescuing children from the world of underground human trafficking. While this may sound like a story that you’d see in the local cinema, the sad fact of the matter is that human trafficking, and the exploitation of minors in the world of sexual enslavement, is all too much a reality. OUR Bountiful Rescue is a movement in Bountiful, UT, devoted to raising awareness surrounding these issues, as well as to raising funds for Operation Underground Railroad. It is a cause near and dear to our hearts, and one which we hope you will consider supporting.
How You Can Help
As you’ll see in following the links above, there are a number of ways in which you can make a real difference in the lives of these exploited children. OUR Bountiful Rescue aims to raise $75,000 or more for this organization, and we need your help. Donations are always welcome—follow the links for more information on how to donate—but we also hope to see you in person at the upcoming 5k. This is a great way in which to get involved in this community, so bring your family, neighbors, and friends to the Old 5 Points Mall at 1875 S 400 W Bountiful on December 5th. There will be food, music, activities and awards, and it all serves to benefit a great organization with a noble mission. We hope to see you there.
