A few weeks ago on G.B.Y.S, we mentioned an organization called BeLoved Atlanta; which is an organization that seeks to combat sexual exploitation among women. Specifically, this is an non-profit organization based out of Atlanta that is dedicated to helping women who are 22 and over who have been/are victims of sexual exploitation (prostitution, exotic dancing, etc) ( BeLoved Atlanta, 2014). According to the stats, taken directly from their website, Atlanta is the number ONE city in the U.S with the highest sex economy income ( as cited on BeLoved Atlanta ).
That being said, BeLoved Atlanta seeks to combat this issue through their restorative programs, by providing residential housing, and educational and employment resources; all with the center of their belief being that “every woman has value and deserves to be respected by their community”. I don’t know about you, but I love that they are bringing Christ into their mission! Hence the name: BeLoved which literally just speaks more so about how God created us and how he loves us ( we are dearly loved by Christ) and how we are to show love unto others( let these women know that they are LOVED).
Well, we here at G.B.Y.S wanted to show our support of their purpose so we wanted to send BeLoved Atlanta an item on their needs list BUUT we wanted to hear from you guys which item you would like to see shipped. So, go ahead and comment below with the item and the item that has been most commented = will be shipped. By all means, of course we want to encourage you guys to send whatever you may feel led to yourself because everything and anything would be appreciated. Their needs list:
