It’s Personal

Distance changes things. If you’ve even been at a harried airport or a in a busy downtown square, the scene plays out the same, time and time again. After waving at a person who looks just like your college roommate, you bound closer, only to find yourself embracing a perfect stranger. What looks familiar from fifty feet away, can suddenly look foreign from five feet away.

Sometimes, distance can provide a false sense of security. Issues, problems, or phenomena reported in other regions don’t really affect our daily lives. An event that shatters one woman’s life, doesn’t necessarily stop another from going about her daily business.

More often than not, we don’t make it personal. Because, making it personal is uncomfortable.

As the final three days of The Ask Project pass by, I’d like to ask you to think of eight women in your life, by name, including yourself. In Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 1 in 9 women are a part of the sex industry. When the odds of living a hopeless existence are at the doorstep, life gets real. Life gets raw.

Whether it’s $10 or $100, we can make it personal and save one more. Prayerfully leaning in for $300 more. Click to join:
