Here at Chains Interrupted, every single dollar donated is prayerfully spent toward the fight; either in prevention, rescue or restoration. Donations are tax-deductible and can be sent to PO Box 583 Cedar Rapids, Iowa 52406, or through the link below. Your help in funding is greatly appreciated!
Got stuff? Everyone has "stuff" cluttering their life. Take what you no longer want to Stuff Etc (252 Blairs Ferry Road NE, Cedar Rapids), and tell them you want to donate profits to "Chains Interrupted." When an item sells, Stuff Etc. donates 50% of the profit to help fight human trafficking! (you can get a tax deduction receipt for 50% of the value donated as well) Thank you for helping in this way!
Everyone has something to give. We cannot win in this fight without the entire community being involved. Police and legal agents cannot be everywhere, nor see everything. Everyone should become educated on the signs and symptoms of human trafficking and what to do if they suspect it.
Start with educating yourself and circle of family and friends.
Seek to "Look Beneath the Surface" and ask "Are you OK?"
