Help Save A Life End Sex Trafficking

One of my favorite quotes by Rev. Martin Luther King says, “Only light can drive out the darkness.” Unfortunately, sometimes, the more you know, the darker that darkness seems.

“Someone ought to do something about that,” we say, and we mean it. We really would help if we could.

Me too! I totally get it.


Matt and I found out a couple of years ago that in our city, young girls are being bought and sold as sex slaves. At first, my mind wouldn’t even go there. I couldn’t comprehend what we were being told. What did they mean, “sex slaves”? How could that possibly even be thing?


Soon, though, I realized human trafficking was and is a reality. Yes, even in Spokane.


The couple who told us about it took action. Aaron and Bindi Tilbury were the right people for the job. Not only did they have the “calling,” they had the smarts to organize, advertise, and go all out to rescue and help the children who had been enslaved, some for years, and help them transition into a new life.


We watched in awe as The Jonah Project went from horrified moral outrage to fully-formed, doing-the-work, getting-it-done reality. Aaron and Bindi also discovered that, all across America, a new underground railroad is being pieced together by like-minded people.


Here in Spokane, light is beginning to drive out the darkness. The Jonah Project now has homes in which to house rescued teens to help them get on their feet, access much-needed counseling, and connect them with either their own families or a willing family.


There is much more to be done, but, at least someone is doing something about it, and you can help. The houses have an ongoing need for the simplest of things that help enormously with this complex undertaking.
