The Reclaim3d Cinco De Mayo Gala raised $17,192! These 3 missions will each get a $5,000 check with the balance going towards local needs.
1. Heart for Africa – Provides self-sustainable homes for orphans in Swaziland, Africa. Mrs. Janine Maxwell, co-founder of Heart for Africa traveled in from Swaziland, Africa to speak at the event.
2. Destiny Rescue – Provides hope and healing by rescuing girls from human trafficking in Cambodia and Thailand. A representative from Destiny Rescue attended the event and also spoke about what their organization is doing to rescue and restore these young girls from the horror of human trafficking.
3. Ms. Pearl from Good News Daycare – Provides free Christ-centered daycare for children in the Roseland community, one of the toughest areas of Chicago. While the children are being well cared for and loved, the moms can get an education, work, and provide for their families.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who made this event a success – those that donated, hit the streets collecting donations, helped organize and set up the event, cooked for the event, cleaned up, and more!
