For 2015, Next Level Gives supports
C.A.T.C.H. (CHANGING ACTIONS TO CHANGE HABITS) COURT IS A PROGRAM FOR SURVIVORS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING, operating THROUGH THE FRANKLIN COUNTY MUNICIPAL COURT SPECIALized DOCKETS in Columbus, Ohio!
Our Projects Include:
Transformation Butterfly and Bumblebee Garden- VIP2 will create a safe, beautiful space where the women of CATCH Court can come together since their only other safe “together” space is the courtroom. This also represents change, transformation and revitalization in the threat of extinction.
National Awareness Campaign- VIP2 intends to not only impact the lives of the women actively participating in C.A.T.C.H. Court in Columbus, but to make an impact at a National and Global level. By creating "National Wear White Day" on August 22nd, 2015, we will raise awareness on the issue of human trafficking and the work that C.A.T.C.H. Court is doing. The event will help us source monetary donations to our Indiegogo campaign, allowing us to purchase gift cards for the women of C.A.T.CH. for clothing and supplies for themselves and their families. Our NATIONAL WEAR WHITE DAY event on Facebook allows everyone across the nation to get involved by donating, wearing white, and posting photos throughout the day using the hashtag #wearwhiteday!
Satellite Wear White Day events- On August 22nd, 2015, Wear White Day Events will take place in New York City, Portland OR, Nashville TN, and Madison WI. VIP2 members will gather groups together wearing white to distribute flyers on C.A.T.C.H. court, outlining our cause and ways in which people can get involved and donate. We will also hand out flyers highlighting statistics on human trafficking. Throughout the day, people gathered at these events will post photos on Facebook and Instagram using our hashtag.
