Help Bring Freedom
You are invited to promote True Freedom with Newman Realty Group.
Beyond finding the perfect homes for clients and getting top dollar in a seamless sale of property, Newman Realty Group strives to make a bigger impact. Our next service project is all about freedom, True Freedom!
What if you could help bring freedom to survivors of sex trafficking with something surprisingly simple?
Human trafficking robs freedom from millions of people each year. Free The Girls is an organization that helps those affected and Newman Realty Group is excited to promote and support what they do. And you are invited to join in!
Bra + Buck’s Drive
Free the Girls supplies bra’s (and training to sell bra’s) to women rescued out of sex trafficking. We plan on collecting new and gently used bra’s for these women. If you are a woman, you probably have one or two extra’s you could donate. Or you may just know someone who could.
Drop off your bra’s at one of many locations around Denver and Castle Rock from July 1-31, or if you are in the Denver area, we will even come pick them up (Sometime around August 1). Let us know you want to participate and we’ll send you the drop off points or coordinate picking them up!
And if you feel led, you could throw in a donation to help with shipping and Free the Girls training costs.
WE ARE FOR RESCUING
Free The Girls exists “to help women rescued from sex trafficking reintegrate into their communities.” And we can definitely stand behind that!
WE ARE FOR RESTORATION
Free The Girls strives to “see a world in which previously enslaved women are leading vibrant, successful, integrated lives. “ And Newman Realty Group is all about vibrant lives that contribute and serve others.
WE ARE FOR TRUE FREEDOM
For us at Newman Realty group, our faith demonstrates what true freedom looks like and for Free the Girls they say….
“OUR MODEL IS TRUE FREEDOM. NOT SIMPLY DISTANCE FROM A TRAFFICKER. TRUE FREEDOM IS NOTHING LESS THAN WOMEN WALKING IN WHOLENESS PHYSICALLY, FINANCIALLY, EMOTIONALLY, MENTALLY, AND SPIRITUALLY.
So, we are thrilled to come alongside and promote this good cause; promote rescuing, promote restoration, and champion true freedom.
Q. WHEN is the BRA+BUCK’s drive?
