friends of maiti

Watch this video.  I cried.  CNN's Hero of the Year for 2010 is Anuradha Koirala, a woman in Nepal who rescues girls from human trafficking.  She’s rescued more than 12,000 girls from sex slavery and thanks to her recognition as a CNN hero, Koirala will receive $125,000 to continue her work with girls in Nepal. You can help her continue her work, too.

If you watched the video, you have already learned a little bit about the refuge that Koirala runs in Nepal for rescued girls.  Friends of Maiti Nepal is a non-profit all-volunteer organization dedicated to addressing the human rights crisis of girl sex-trafficking through prevention, interception, rescue and rehabilitation of victims; and criminal prosecution of perpetrators.  Get it.

Help her.  If karma exists, she deserves it.  And a Nobel Peace Prize.  You can at least make a donation.

As always, Facebook and Twitter it up, y'all.  Let's show this hero some love.
