In the spring of 2011, our family was preparing to adopt. I encouraged my kids to be praying about how God would provide for this adoption. Soon after praying, my 11 year old daughter, Sarah, told me that she felt we should go door to door selling chocolate covered pretzels. I really only agreed to this to support her and secretly prayed that people would buy the pretzels so that we didn’t lose money on this endeavor…Long story short, we quickly sold out. Several people contacted us volunteering to put our pretzels in their work place and within a short period of time we were in 32 locations…Our fundraiser was in full swing and God provided all of the money for our adoption through our pretzel sales.
Fast forward to now…10 years later. As a single mom with a need to provide for my children, combined with a burning passion to help women and children in abusive situations. . . When I learned that child sex trafficking is the fastest growing crime in America and that there are more than 100,000 victims with less than 600 beds available nationwide for child sex trafficking survivors, I knew I had to do something!
We decided to start a gourmet pretzel business. And in honor of my oldest daughters door to door chocolate covered pretzel idea many years ago, we decided to name it “Sarah’s Gourmet Pretzels.”
My daughter EmmaLeigh says “We want to fight trafficking one pretzel at a time!”
Will you join us in the fight against child trafficking?
