Operation Underground Railroad exists to rescue children from human trafficking, and we recently partnered with them to help make this a reality. Their expertise allows them to run operations that successfully rescue children from unthinkable situations, and nurture them back to a better life. An average rescue mission cost is $50,000, so through this partnership we set a goal to raise $100,000! Due to the support of our Merchandisers and Customers, in less than five months we achieved it! We were able to present the founder of O.U.R., Tim Ballard, our donation at our recent Convention, and we could not be more grateful to all of you who helped us give back.
