I first met Tim Ballard, Founder and CEO of Operation Underground Railroad, 19 years ago. Since then he's worked for the CIA and Homeland Security taking down child traffickers with a connection to the United States. In 2013 he started Operation Underground Railroad so that his team could go after child predators and traffickers regardless of whether or not they are U.S. citizens. Ever since I heard about the work that he's been doing, I've had trouble sleeping... worrying about the 2 million kids held against their wills, away from their families. Worst of all they are bought and sold as sex slaves. I can't look the other way anymore and leave these young kids to fend for themselves against these brutal monsters. I decided I had to do something to help rescue these kids.
On Monday 9/14 Tim and his team came to my home in Kaysville to tell me and a handful of friends about an exciting undercover mission in South America that needs a sponsor. A Jump Team has already made contact with the traffickers and met 4 of several children they are trying to "rent". We've seen their faces: 3 girls and 1 boy, ages 11-14. Please... join us. Let's stand up to the plague of child traffickers and help rescue these kids. Don't wait, every night is another nightmare for these children. The undercover raid will cost $50k.
