What?
Come hang out and make cards with us!

We are hosting our second annual card making event on May 31st. This is a time when we come together for a few hours to make homemade, handwritten cards with words of encouragement and inspiration for human trafficking (modern-day slavery) victims and survivors currently residing in safe houses and shelters. According to staff and volunteers, there are positive responses from the recipients, so we want to continue to help encourage and uplift in any way we can. We collaborate with Written on Your Heart- Houston, who will deliver the cards.

Additionally, we will collect monetary donations for the Houston Rescue and Restore Coalition (HRRC), an organization seeking to prevent modern-day slavery through education, training, and community empowerment. Monies collected from the event will go directly to this organization.

We will provide the supplies needed to create the cards. Feel free to bring any other supplies you want to use to spark your creativity. There will be refreshments served and we will provide information related to human
trafficking.
