Something old, something new, something borrowed, something beautiful.

In the U.S. alone $72 billion is spent each year on weddings. Imagine what you could do...
I received this email last week and was so encouraged. It's amazing to see the abolition movement growing. Thank you to Kim and her daughter, we are so grateful for your thoughtfulness. Everyone at Love146 wishes the bride and groom all happiness. 

Sincerely,
Desirea

"We asked the guests at my daughter's bridal shower to bring a donation for Love146 instead of spending the money on a greeting card. So we had lunch, then my daughter spoke to the ladies about human trafficking. We then showed the video and collected over $200 for Love146. She will also be doing this at her wedding reception. We will include info. on our intentions to collect for you on our invitations.. If there is a poster that we can display at our 'giving table' at her wedding reception, please let us know. We purchased the dvd and info packet with 100 postcards, and will show that at the reception as well. We pray, and wish we could do more." Kim

That's awesome! I'm planning on doing that too (but it's a long time from now)
