You and your friends are invited to help rescue human trafficking victims by shopping for Christmas at two Women at Risk benefit events.  The first will be Friday, December 6 from 10-2:30 in the Community Room at the Champaign County Government Building located at 1512 S. Highway 68 just south of Urbana.  The second benefit will be Sunday, December 8 from 12-5 pm at Mt. Carmel Friends Church.  The church is located at 3470 Kennard Kingscreek Rd. off of Ludlow Road in Champaign County. 

     Women At Risk, WAR for short, rescues persons trapped in human trafficking.  This organization provides safe houses, vocational training and support for former victims to help them heal and become financially independent.  Persons helped are given the opportunity to create jewelry, scarves, wooden items, glass ornaments, toys, purses and other products which are sold at benefit parties.  Of the monies raised, ninety percent is returned to the creators of the products, while ten percent is used for administrative costs and rescue efforts.
