Can a song provide Rescue?

When I was a little girl (around 7 years old), growing up in a small town in Illinois, the color of my skin did not help me to fit in. I was taking piano lessons in a Catholic College and my music teacher scared me.  She would hit my hands with a ruler because my hands were not curved on the keyboard.  It was like all the adult figures in my life were mean, which included my mother, who had mental health issues.  The shining light was that while I was waiting for music lessons, there was a communal room and there was always music playing loudly and college students (a.k.a crazy big people).

I want to share this song that I have been waking up to in the wee hours of the morning.  It is a song that makes me realize that we are all able to help one another.  Some of you may actually remember this TV show called, Soul Train….I know that this dates me as prehistoric…oh well, this song is an oldie but goodie.

Lastly no matter what you are going through, listen to music which helps build your faith and feeds your soul…just listen and there will be a strong voice in your head saying or singing words of Love and Kindness. (Shut out the words that are negative.) One thing that I have learned while being here in Texas is that your churches and the worship music are filled with words and songs that help you realize that you are not alone, if you are willing to really listen to the words.  If someone drags you to church, at least go for the music and you might just get hooked on the message as well.

 
 

How can you get involved in Rescue?

This month Rescue Party Give is preparing for two opportunities to help fund our work:

  1. We are participating in North Texas Giving Day from Sept 9 through Sept 19. Here you will have the opportunity to assist us by promoting and donating to Rescue Party Give with an 18-hour online giving event.  This event is designed to empower every person to give back to our community by supporting local non-profits with an easy-to-use platform. Get more info HERE.

  2. On October 19, we are preparing and planning to host our next “Block Party for Freedom” with the help of the retailers at The Shops of Stonebrook and Visit Frisco.  It will be a day celebrating freedom and will feature the talents of local artisans and musicians.  Come see the community come together to raise awareness, protect children and change lives.

Why is so much rescue needed in the world?

There are more Jeffery Epsteins in the world.  Finally, his money could not protect him any longer.  How many more individuals who have committed similar crimes have been able to buy political favor, or have lawyers find loopholes for a reduced sentence.  We live in a corrupt world.  During my visit this past May to the Dominican Republic, I heard a child trafficker’s response to the judge for the reason he used money to purchase young girls.  He responded, “What else was I supposed to do with my money?”

At Rescue Party Give, we believe that money can be used for good.  We will help rescue people by promoting awareness that we collectively can come together and help reduce the supply and demand of human trafficking.  This is about community and we can help rescue others by throwing parties which highlight love, harmony and healing using the talents of others.  Our weapon will be art, food, music and laughter. 

My Personal Assignment - Jennifer Keltner - July 2019

The doors keep opening for Rescue Party Give (RPG).  Join us as we launch the RescuePartyGive.org website today to celebrate Independence Day with the truth that all people are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

We are creating a community to raise awareness of the issues of human trafficking.  RPG is investigating ways of solving this problem, collaborating with like-minded sponsors, and finding non-profits that actively disrupt this evil marketplace.  By organizing these events, we not only create awareness but provide opportunities that leverage the collective soul and talents of our community.  Yes, it will take a lot money to fight this industry of slavery, so there is a financial element as well.  Our events are open to everyone.  Please consider joining our community online at http://rescuepartygive.org, and we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event.

Our world has allowed human trafficking to become a $150 Billion industry.  Every 2.5 hours a child is a victim of human trafficking.  Together, we can help make our earth become a safer place, where Butterflies are free to fly.  It takes community!
