I have donated $25 to fight child trafficking in Southeast Asia. As a child of Vietnamese immigrants, I feel a very strong responsibility to help those in that region. Please consider making a donation--in ANY amount--towards this wonderful organization!
If you are unable to sponsor me, please considering praying or sending good thoughts/vibes my way on May 7th during the 5k! Let's hope I can make it the whole way without complaining/passing out! ha! Thank you!
**Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.**
