Hey everyone! I am Joshua Shierling and I am walking across America, starting May 27, 2018. I have always wanted to hit the open road to see where life takes me. My hope is that this journey across America will be only the beginning of an exciting adventure through life.
When my brother heard I was going to walk across America, he approached me with the idea that I should look into using this trip to raise funds for an organization. We started talking about how there are more slaves today than the entire 16th century slave trade and one example of modern slavery is sex trafficking. I started reading about O.U.R., an organization that specializes in stopping sex trafficking, capturing the sex traffickers, and saving the men, women, and even children who are sex slaves. After giving it some thought, I decided to use my walk across America as a fundraiser for O.U.R. I am now in the process of making websites and fundraisers so this can all come together. Many people do not realize that slavery is still around and actually growing by the day. I hope to raise awareness about modern slavery and encourage people to become abolitionists against human trafficking.
All donated money goes straight to O.U.R. SO START DONATING TODAY!! You can donate once or you can have a plan and donate $5 or more a month. How you want to do it is up to you. I just want to encourage you to begin today and do something to help make a difference.
