We celebrate Freedom and confirm that every life is precious. We have gathered creative talents, foodies and fashionistas to help fight against modern day slavery. Artists have created pieces of art or music to fight for Freedom. At RescuePartyGive we have auctioned off these artists works to raise awareness for the plight of children in slavery and to support efforts for their rescue and rehabilitation.
Volunteer Vendor: Mixin’ Up Smiles
Donna Patten, a fellow Plano bakery owner was approached by a friend to help. Donna did not even know Jennifer Keltner, but she was drawn to help fight against human trafficking. She was contacted just 4 days before the March 15 event, but she lovingly supplied 200 individually wrapped cookies with the RescuePartyGive logo on each one.
Donna has been in business since 2017, loves to bake and is thrilled that her cookie making talent can help save lives.
Mixin' Up Smiles bakes small-batch "home-style" cookies to order with fresh, quality ingredients, and creates custom labeling and packaging to suit your business or personal needs. These treats are delivered to your door (in the local D/FW area) or shipped to other areas in the U.S.

He taught art and design & technology in Indonesia for several years. There his eyes and heart were opened to the issues of sex trafficking and corruption. He wants to use the skills and talents God has given him to help in any way, which is why he joined RescuePartyGive for A Night to Fight for Freedom. He was honored to be asked to create a piece of art which represented Freedom and helps to end human trafficking. He called this piece, Until All Are Free (IJMs motto). The girl represents those who have found freedom and are seeking to find it for others.
