Culinary Butterfly is a proud supporter of Operation Underground Railroad.
As a person with a sincere love for people around the world, my passion for those in every corner of the globe runs much deeper than the food that represents their culture. Protecting children, the most vulnerable among us, makes my heart overflow with compassion.
A few years ago, I discovered Tim Ballard’s organization, O.U.R. Operation Underground Railroad. An incredible organization dedicated to rescuing children in the sex slave trade. O.U.R.’s mission is to shine a light for the world on the global epidemic of child sex trafficking, and in doing so rescue children from slavery and assist law enforcement in the prosecution of trafficking offenders. They place rescued children in safe havens providing appropriate recovery aftercare. After learning of the great work this organization does, it compelled my soul to support their efforts. If you are not yet familiar with O.U.R., let me take a moment to inspire you.
“…. I feel now that the time is come when even a woman or a child who can speak a word for freedom and humanity is bound to speak.
… I hope EVERYONE who can write will not be silent.”
