The Journey radio network held its 3rd Partner Event last week and surpassed its fundraising goal by 104%. In addition, the goal itself was 50% above the previous fundraising goal.

The Journey shares a mentoring relationship with KSBJ and wants to thank Jon Hull for contributing as both on air host and coach during the Partner Event.
The Journey is only about 15 months old as a format and the Journey staff is excited and grateful in the afterglow of what was a wonderful Partner Event.

This was the fifth year of the morning show effort, led by Carmen Brown¸who in 2012 established a partnership with Curb recording artistNatalie Grant, founder of Abolition International, (which merged with Hope for Justice in 2015) and formed Free To Run. At that time, TeamFreedom numbered 132 participants and raised $60,000 for the cause. Hope for Justice works globally and locally to to "end human traffickingand slavery in our generation."
According to the Hope for Justice website, www.hopeforjustice.org, there are over 20 million persons enslaved today, many who are sexually exploited children. The youngest victim rescued to-date was a one-year old, according to the organization's 2013 report. More recently, support from Team Freedom has been used to launch a Cambodian Educational Pilot program for girls rescued from trafficking. The program seeks to empower girls through education and training.
