I have spoken here about my involvement with a group called A Beautiful Rescue. Our mission is to end sex trafficking in our hometown, Duluth, Minnesota, and to provide healing for victims. Our vision is to accomplish this through the arts. We will be selling art by local artists to raise money in order to get our organization off the ground, working toward opening a safe house for victims. After that, the goal is to use art to help victims heal, and to provide them an outlet to sell their work in order to earn an income, as well as continue to fund the program.
For right now, the only art available to purchase online is located at my new Zazzle.com store, located at http://www.zazzle.com/duluthabolitionist. At the moment I only have 8″ x 10″ photo prints available for sale, but I intend to add many other products featuring my photography. For every print you order, 50% will be donated to A Beautiful Rescue. Please note, however, that I am not a 501(c)3 non-profit, and neither is A Beautiful Rescue—Yet. We are working toward 501(c)3 non-profit status. This means your purchase will not be tax deductible. However, you will be supporting a great cause and helping victims of sex trafficking in the Duluth-Superior area become survivors.
Please check out my store and consider purchasing one of my photo prints. http://www.zazzle.com/duluthabolitionist

If you’d like to donate to A Beautiful Rescue, but don’t wish to purchase any photography, you can do so at ABeautifulRescue.com
A Beautiful Rescue has ceased to exist as an active organization and donations are no longer accepted. The money we raised went to local organizations who shared the same vision to see sexual violence and human trafficking end. Even though we’re closed, you can still get some great information at our website, which will be left up for the foreseeable future.
