Can you imagine not having any electricity in this Houston weather? No lights at night? No food in the fridge? Your stomach grumbling? How would you feel? Pretty miserable and hopeless. Thankfully, we were able to go to the grocery store, buy groceries, and bring them to her.
What teenager should have to ask for groceries for her and her siblings? She should be carefree, not hungry and worried about her next meal. Will you help us meet the needs of our teen trafficking survivors? We need gift cards from Walmart, HEB, Kroger, or Visa prepaid cards. Please mail them to Free the Captives, 2211 Rayford Road, Suite 111-418, Spring, TX 77386. No child should go without food.

Yoga Mats, Pilates and Kickboxing! Help our Girls get in Shape!
Many teen trafficking victims struggle with being healthy. They often come from families with severe health issues. Many of these girls have lost parents to illness. We want them to be healthy so we are adding a workout session to our weekly group meetings. Can you help us?
We are looking for volunteer instructors to teach our girls Pilates, yoga, kickboxing, Zumba and more! If you can help with a class on Tuesday nights in the Heights at 7pm, please email email@example.com.
We also need yoga mats for the girls. They will cost $320. If you can help with this cost, please make a donation athttp://www.freethecaptiveshouston.com/take-action/support-our-work/. You can also mail a check to Free the Captives, 2211 Rayford Road, Suite 111-418, Spring, TX 77386.
