Juggle For Their Lives 2013

What is Juggle For Their Lives?

Juggle For Their Lives is a fundraiser to help support Freedom 4/24, a charity that exists to raise awareness of the rampant sexual exploitation of women around the world. As a non-profit organization, Freedom 4/24’s mission is to provide a pathway to freedom for the sexually exploited through Christ-centered ministries that seek to rescue enslaved women and children. You can read more about Freedom 4/24 by visiting their website at www.freedom424.org.

On Sunday June 2, 2013, the Juggle For Their Lives event will be held at FYAA’s Jump Park (3722 Thomas Jefferson Road, Forest, VA 24551). At this event we will all juggle a soccer ball with our feet for 10 minutes and each record our total number of juggles. Prior to this event you will ask people to sponsor you per juggle (e.g. 1c per juggle) or a one-time flat donation. Once the event is over, you will then inform your pledgers of your total number of juggles and collect the money they pledged to you.

Last year we raised over $1,600 which provided 67 women the opportunity for freedom. Our goal in 2013 is to raise $12,000 which will offer 500 women and children an opportunity for freedom. See our video below for highlights of our 2012 J4TL event!

Can I Really Help Make A Difference?

Your partnership with Freedom 4/24 brings the hope of freedom to women and children around the world.  As Freedom 4/24 continues their fight against the injustice of this issue, we know that a life of freedom begins with a day. One day. 24 hours that can be the beginning of a life of freedom. A life of opportunity, education, employment, and health care (physical, emotional, spiritual). Let freedom begin with $24. Let it begin with one exploited woman or child offered freedom at a time. Let it begin with you.
