Happy Birthday, Rethreaded!

by | Jul 20, 2022

Ya’ know, it seems like each year at my birthday, I think that things should be getting easier. I mean, I’ve done this thing called life for a little while now. If you’re anything like me, I’m guessing you’d agree it doesn’t seem to work that way. I’ve found that to be true at Rethreaded, too. We’re 11 years in at this point, and we are finding that the work is just beginning. We still have so much to do in this fight against trafficking and the generational effects it has on the survivors and their families.  

Over the last 11 years, we’ve employed 78 survivors. We’ve provided over 140,000 hours of employment, counseling, personal development and job training. And we’ve provided connection, community, and hope for hundreds of survivors who may never come to Rethreaded but are encouraged and loved by the survivors who leave Rethreaded and carry the light of hope back into our communities.

This will be our biggest Birthday party yet, and it will be a night of fun; and together with you, we will help provide hope and renewal for survivors right here in our city, for another year. Please mark your calendars and plan to be with us on July 30, from 4 – 7. It’s a free event, and family friendly. Invite your friends and come on out for a powerful, and fun-filled night celebrating 11 years of Reclaiming the Light. 

We LOVE our birthday every year. It’s one of our favorite days of the year. This year we will have an exciting raffle, dancing, games, music, food, our Fall 2022 product launch, and live debossing to put your initials on your favorite new leather items. It’s our first birthday at the Delores Barr Weaver Campus of Hope, and we plan for it to be one for the record books. The theme will be NEON, 11 Years of Reclaiming the Light, and we will blast back to the 80’s. Remember those great memories? The fun music? If so, come on to the birthday party in your favorite 80’s outfit and relive the glory days! If you don’t remember the 80’s, come on by and experience the fun! 

Our annual birthday party is one of our main events each year. This event celebrates our community that has made another year of renewal in the lives of survivors possible. Each year we have a significant goal to reach at our birthday party. This year is no exception. Our goal is to raise $60,000 to help fund the survivor hiring class that will start just a few days after the birthday party. 

We love our extended Rethreaded family and the community that has rallied around Rethreaded and the mission to renew hope, reignite dreams, and release the potential for survivors of human trafficking. We would love to spend time with you all at our birthday party, and we ask you to join us for an incredible evening with great music, good food, and friends and family. It is a perfect way to cap off summer.   

If you would like to donate now to help us reach our goal, you can do so here. Please RSVP here and come spend the evening with us. Wear your best 80’s outfit.  

Can’t wait to see you and party like it’s 1985 with you!
