Up All Night – Stay Up Way Past Your Bedtime to Support Victims of Sex Trafficking

by Michelle Brock on April 20th, 2015

icon 16Do you like to sleep?  Do you care about victims of sex trafficking and abuse?  Next month, you can take part in an awesome new event called Up All Night, a no-sleep-a-thon fundraiser that supports charities serving victims and survivors of slavery, trafficking and abuse.

On May 29th, groups and individuals across the country will be giving up the one thing we all need every single night – SLEEP.  It is a symbolic gesture of solidarity with those who are often up all night themselves, working against their will in very dark circumstances.

icon 7Each participant can register for either an 18 hour or 24 hour commitment.  You can also select which charity to support through your efforts:

It’s not too late – so whether you are signing up alone, with a group, or with your family, register today!
