Giving Tuesday 2023

Food and Shelter

As the calendar inches closer to the much-anticipated Giving Tuesday, the atmosphere is buzzing with excitement and anticipation. It's a day when the world unites in a spirit of generosity and compassion, setting aside the chaos of consumerism to focus on the true meaning of giving. At Beauty For Ashes, we are absolutely thrilled to be a part of this global movement. We are committed to making a real impact in the lives of vulnerable girls, and we believe that together, we can create a brighter future for them. It is a day that promises to be filled with hope, compassion, and the power to make a difference.

Beauty For Ashes Africa is eager to reveal more about our cause and how you can become an integral part of our mission. We understand the importance of community and collaboration, and we want you to be a part of our journey to transform the lives of young girls in need. This year our focus will be on breaking the cycle of two specific vulnerabilities we see most often: Food and Shelter. These two essential needs are the pillars that hold up an individuals ability to have freedom and choices. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to cover the cost of food and housing for 8 girls in our Healing House Transition Home for this coming year.  These girls in our home would otherwise be on the street in prostitution if our Healing House were not open. We believe that together, we can be the catalyst for change, providing these girls with opportunities, support, and a chance at a brighter future. You can take action today by donating and joining others in helping provide food and shelter for girls at-risk to human trafficking.
