We Are Overlooked and Love146

So tonight I received a notice online from We Are Overlooked. It's this great organization I stumbled across somewhere. They make TShirts to sell in order to fund different things. A shirt purchase will feed a child, or give them a water purifier, or a mosquito net, or something.. They added a new shirt to their lineup and it made me want to cry just reading it. The front says "because some things are never meant to be caged" and it has a drawing of a child in a cage.  On the back it says that "Two children per minute are trafficked for sexual exploitation. The purchase of this shirt aids in prevention and aftercare. WeAreOverlooked.com" I read that and I wanted to cry. I went to the website that they said sales of this shirt supports. I watched their videos and I thought of my daughter Sheridan and I wanted to cry. Actually I did cry a little. It's just so awful to me that these things happen, and I feel like I can't do anything about it. So when I get paid I'm going to buy a shirt and I'm going to send money to love146. I'm going to buy the shirt so that maybe when it is worn someone will ask about it and maybe someone else will do something. Because even that little bit is more than what I was doing yesterday.

If any of you are interested in finding out more, here are the websites.
