Definition (Google) – unselfish love of one person for another
My favorite example of AGAPE is the way Jesus reacted on the cross. Even while being persecuted he said “father forgive them they don’t know what they are doing.” For me that is the definition of unselfishness. Loving in way that requires you to step outside of your comfort zone. This is where the idea for my non-profit came from.
Something that I am very passionate about is fighting against human trafficking. I believe I have the privilege of a platform where I can learn, speak and advocate. For the past few months I have been thinking about the ways I could contribute to the fight against human trafficking. So out of a lot of prayer and research Freely Elegant was born (learn more about what that means on the about page).
One aspect of the freedom part of this blog is #AGAPE. The goal is to raise funds for, and awareness about, human trafficking. The organization I plan to support is Wipe Every Tear. They are an organization actively fighting against sexual trafficking. They provide a way out, safe houses and education to the young women and girls whose lives are being restored.
So what’s the plan?
- Sell the AGAPE t-shirts I designed and a 100% of the profits will go towards fighting human trafficking.
- These t-shirts not only help abolish human trafficking but also raise awareness of this issue
AGAPE = Raising Awareness + Raising Money
