Yard Sale for FREEDOM!
This is a different kind of Meetup, because it doesn’t require a “Meetup” at all. You can do this in your own community, neighborhood, even driveway!!!
The earthquake in Haiti three weeks ago has brought attention to the dispicable practice of human trafficking. Every 30 seconds, another person becomes a victim of slavery, with 27 million people enslaved worldwide — that’s more than the population of Texas. Sadly, over 80% of the victims are women and children. Florida is #2 in the nation for reported cases of human trafficking. As if the story wasn’t sad enough, to find that this blight touches us in our own backyard is a wake up call. Read this article from the Palm Beach Post.

Your yard sale will be advertised in the Palm Beach Post, Sun-Sentinel, craigslist, and various public libraries.
Start your spring cleaning a little bit early this year, by sorting through your household for unwanted items, and asking your friends to contribute items. Realize that just about anything will sell if it’s a bargain. Make sure your yard signs say specifically “YARD SALE FOR FREEDOM” on them, so people will know that your sale has a higher purpose.
