Since this day, @lifeleadrship Members have raised this number to over $800,000! In October, Life Leadership held a push-up contest in Kentucky where the entire LIFE community was invited to participate in an O.U.R. fundraiser. We are incredibly grateful for everyone’s generosity and support in fighting human trafficking! Link in profile for full story. #OURrescue #jointhefight
One of the key pillars of our mission at O.U.R. is to empower local law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges. We believe that “teaching a person to fish” will lead to more sustainable and systematic improvement, as well as generational change. 
In November, O.U.R. facilitated the travel of current U.S. law enforcement officers, as well a former prosecutor, to Bogota, Colombia to train the Colombian National Police team which works closely with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Over the course of a week, our Colombian partners learned about online investigation techniques, undercover investigation, and basic computer forensics. We believe that these tools will assist Colombia in its goal to track down and apprehend child predators and child pornographers both within their borders and around the world. #JointheFight #Collaboration

This is Arther, who works in the hotel business for Hotel Equities. After receiving some training last month about how to stop trafficking in hotels, he suggested to have the company put these signs up in all of their hotels. O.U.R. Aftercare Director Jessica Mass has said of this issue, "many of us do not realize that when traffickers were no longer able to use brothels, they transitioned to hotel rooms." Thank you, Arther, for fighting trafficking in such an important place! Read our blog about what other hotel owners are doing to join the fight in their businesses. (Link in profile) #ShineOURLight
When you turned five years old, what did you hope to get on your birthday? This little superhero is one-of-a-kind: He asked for no presents, and wished to help "real-life superheroes" who save lost children. His parents had mentioned what the O.U.R. jump team does to save kids (in a simplified way that he could understand.) This birthday boy felt inspired to have a 1K superhero race with his friends to support the cause! No matter your age, no matter your size or ability, you can join the fight and #ShineOURLight! See link in profile to read more of this wonderful story.

Two players from the Pittsburgh @steelers, Ben Roethlisberger and Jordan Berry, will be wearing special O.U.R. cleats during this Monday’s game to support the fight against child trafficking. Each player on the team will be representing a cause as a part of the “My Cause, My Cleats” initiative. We're very grateful for this partnership and are excited to see these players rep O.U.R. on the field! #JointheFight
We are excited to announce the rescue of 25 survivors in Central America! This is after a months-long investigation and operation supported by O.U.R. Authorities are continuing to work the case and hoping for more rescues and arrests!  Stay tuned #OURrescue #freedom

Wonderful to be a keynote speaker at the first Anti-Trafficking Summit in Mexico this week. Nearly every country in the western hemisphere was represented. Big things to come for @ourrescue in Latin America! #EndHumanTrafficking #OURrescue #juntoscontralatrata #aquiestoy
