Happy Thanksgiving!

Lindsey Malcolm

In a world where current events are turbulent and stability is wavering, we turn our thoughts to what we know. We know that this world is not as it should be. We know there are greater things that exist beyond what our eyes can see. Courage. Commitment. Dedication. Sacrifice.

At International Sanctuary, these traits are evident every day. I see it in the courageous young women that walk through our doors at our sanctuary in Orange County. I see it in the young women that embrace challenging concepts at our Academy in Mumbai. I see it in our dedicated staff who work tirelessly to provide avenues for lives to be transformed. I see it in the commitment of our volunteers and interns that faithfully serve each week. I see it in our supporters that give sacrificially.

During this season of gratefulness, we choose to focus on these things. Rather than highlighting the evil that drives us to do the work we do, we celebrate the unifying force of hope, the confidence of faith, and the power of unconditional love.

May you experience truth, peace, and hope this season!

Investing in Connected Communities: OC Giving Day April 21-22

Lindsey Malcolm

Alexis Miller is the new Development and Fundraising Coordinator for iSanctuary. Learn more about her here. 

I’ve lived in Orange County on and off for 12 years. Every time I move away, it always draws me back. But it isn’t just the 75-degrees-and-sunny January beach days that keep me close, I’m invested here because of the passionate people who are committed to making a difference in our community. Those passionate, dedicated people are why I joined iSanctuary a month ago to work as the Development and Fundraising Coordinator, allowing me the privilege to engage the community with our work and vision for the future of human trafficking aftercare.

As a newcomer to the organization, I see the impact of the work with fresh eyes, and it is empowering. I see each piece of our PURPOSE jewelry as special because the hands that create these pieces are the reason why we want to grow our impact. Our US team couldn’t exist without our India team. And neither could exist without our loyal volunteers, customers, and donors. 

With the foundational pieces in place, we are excited and ready to grow, partner, and invite more women and girls into our community. In order to grow our OC headquarters, our leaders in India, and establish new Sanctuaries globally, we need the support of our community as we seek out new individual, corporate, and foundation partners to raise funds to meet the objectives in our 2020 vision.

One way we are working toward this goal is by participating in the Orange County Community Foundation’s Giving Day on April 21-22. Giving Day is a 30-hour opportunity for supporters to invest in the Orange County community, which for us, means investing in our OC and India teams.

Will you join us on April 21-22 for #iheartoc Giving Day? We have a customized link: https://iheartoc.org/#npo/international-sanctuary that allows you to invest directly in our program, and it will be posted on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds during the 30 hour event. Learn more about OCCF’s Giving Day here and mark your calendars to join us as we work to build stronger, wiser women!
