Holiday Outreach 2012: Wellspring Living

| December 15, 2012

We should all count our many blessings at Christmas time, and this year is no different. Odyssey Personal Financial Advisors announced their 8th Annual Holiday Outreach a few weeks ago asking their clients to help change the lives of a few girls this Holiday season – and they responded. After receiving $1200 worth of gifts and cash donations Odyssey added their $1000 match bringing the total for this year’s campaign to $2200. Thanks to the generosity of the clients and staff of Odyssey the young woman and girls at Wellspring Living will experience a better Christmas this year.

According to the FBI, Atlanta is one of the top cities for sex trafficking. 90% of runaways become part of the sex trade industry, and more than 400 adolescent girls are exploited annually. Statistics show that in Georgia 12,400 men pay for sex each month with nearly 7,200 of the victims being adolescents.

Fortunately, there is a place where these victims can be saved.Wellspring Living is a great organization. They provide restorative homes where the young women and girls learn about self-worth, trust, love, faith and develop skills to build a better future. They help these victims grow their mind, body, and spirit, and teach them the importance of healthy and safe relationships.
