I recently came home after 5 months of touring, experiencing Japan and Hawaii, and while there I learned a great deal about people and more so, myself. I found myself wanting to give back more than I ever have and am now on my way to fund raising a trip to India in which I will take off with the Faceless International group (Sarah Freeman, Stephen of Anberlin and many more) to assist in combating the sex trade industry. If you have read the other posts about this mission you know whats up. If you havent, here are some links:

Ok, so back to my story. I came home and found my room cluttered with clothing, and gizmos and all kinds of crap I realized I just don’t need. To be honest, I never needed. I was a little disturbed by the amount of items in my room and life that are not being used. Clothing on hangers that never get worn, electronics that never get plugged in and so much more.

I decided that instead of letting them sit, I am going to sell them. Sell them in bundles so they go fast and the money that is garnered from the sale of these items are going to add to my incredible price tag to do this mission to India.

Why is this important to you. Well, if you see something you like, then you can bid on it and if you win, you get a bunch of new and used stuff that’s now yours but even more important, you just contributed to helping send me as a representative to India for you, for me, for us and for them so its a quadruple win win win win.

I don’t mind letting go of my material possessions mainly because as im learning more about myself, others and the world, im finding that these things mean very little to me with where I am going and what my life will continue to do. My goal is to try and strip myself as much as possible from the majority of my posessions.

Help me do that! If you see something, go for it. If you don’t, please tell your friends and pass this on in a myspace bulliten or an email. Sweet, that’s all for now.

Nice idea. I want to bid on something, but I don't want to make an eBay account. :/ Maybe I will now. Ha. Or....Danny would let me buy it off of him now. Please.

Danny, I hate the fact that I'm paying off my credit card right now and I cannot afford to spend anything. But how about this --- this is Nicole from Pensacola, FL, by the way --- when you boys are in the DC area in the future, bring something totally sweet that you think I would love (oh, and more of those 'hotpants' you couldn't sell at the red door), and I'll buy it from you. Deal?

I plan on eventually doing my grad research on modern day slavery and human trafficking in the Arab world (if I ever get through my undergrad). It's amazing how unknown these issues are. Thank you for doing this and good luck. I think it is outstanding and I will definitely check out your auction and see if I can contribute.

Your welcome, and whats even more amazing is that its happening insanely quite a bit even in your hometown and you dont even know it. Mine as well. I just a news break on 200 underage teenagers who were selling themselves in a ring. They were aware of what they were doing but needed the money and they willingly did this. Young as 13 in northern california. The cops said all they could do is beg them to not lead that lifestyle. Very sad.
