Dear John A. McArthur,
On behalf of My Refuge House, I am writing to you in regards to an upcoming fundraiser we are planning. My Refuge House is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that provides a safe home to empower and restore survivors of commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) and abuse. With our main location in Cebu, Philippines, My Refuge House provides holistic care intended to enable the trafficking survivors educationally, spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally to stand on their own again.
We recently joined forces with Slavery No More, an organization working to combat and abolish modern-day slavery and human trafficking, and to create awareness and a diversity of opportunities for meaningful personal engagement, located in Calabasas, California. Together we will serve the victims of human trafficking.
On Friday, June 14th, members of both My Refuge House and Slavery No More, along with their survivors, will par take in The Silent Walk. The Silent Walk will commence at sunset and all participants will walk for an hour of silence with a candle in hand. The walk will take place at the location of Slavery No More in Calabasas, California; in addition, all of our members and survivors in Philippines will participate there as well.
We are opening The Silent Walk to the community of Calabasas, with a $15 entrance fee, in hopes of the people in our community joining us. All participants will receive a free wrist band, with the fundraiser and date on it. Our hope is to raise as much money as we can, while honoring our rescued survivors and the victims still at harm. No amount is insignificant.
