Give to the Max Day has finally arrived! It's time for Minnesotans to show the rest of the world how nice we really are by donating to non-profit organizations we believe in to help them continue to do great work!

This year, Breaking Free's goal is to raise $10,000!

The work that we do is not only important, but the impact is immediate for victims of sex trafficking. $10,000 will provide the women and girls with financial assistance to cover legal fee's, education and transportation costs. The funds will provide interest free loans to help meet the
financial gap that occurs with expenses directly related to legal, education and transportation cost.

Watch Vednita Cater's TED talk below!

Vednita Carter, Founder of Breaking Free, shares a powerful message in this TED talk presented at TEDxMinneapolis in July 2015. Carter begins by telling her own story of survival as a high school graduate trafficked in a strip club in Minneapolis. She explains how she got out of the Life and went on to found Breaking Free in October 1996 as a place for women to find safety and refuge. "No woman, no girl, no one deserves to be bought and sold," she declares in her talk. "This is no one's destiny-no one's."
