1/14/2013 - Vota Seeks to Stop Human Trafficking Across Nepal/India Border Through 'Love Found Me' Campaign
Christian pop/rock band VOTA is partnering with Tiny Hands International to help stop the flow of human trafficking across the border of Nepal into India, by raising support for five border monitoring stations for the next five years. For a donation of any amount, campaign supporters are able to download VOTA’s new release, Love Found Me, along with a second acoustic recording, No Plan B. All proceeds go directly to Tiny Hands International. The Love Found Me Campaign features a special video message from VOTA founding member and lead vocalist Bryan Olesen, which can be viewed at www.lovefoundme.org.
“15,000 girls are taken across the border from Nepal into India each year and sold into sexual slavery,” explains Olesen. “There are 26 border points, each with a border monitoring station, that are able to intercept as many as 130 girls each year. Partnering with Tiny Hands, it is our goal to fund five stations for five years so that potentially more than 3000 girls can be rescued from an unthinkable existence. As a band, we can think of no greater purpose than to bring real hope and change to even one girl’s life.”
Love Found Me marks VOTA’s first new studio recording in five years. Produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning Nathan Dantzler (Audio Audrenaline) and Riley Friesen (Family Force 5), Love Found Me features 10 new songs, most written or co-written by Olesen. “God Of The Universe,” the project’s debut single featuring a surprise guest artist, will go for adds at Christian AC and CHR Radio January 18.
Founded in 2004, Tiny Hands International is a Christian non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the church in the developing world to help the poor overcome poverty and become lights of the world. Based in Lincoln, Nebraska, Tiny Hands is committed to finding the greatest injustices in the world, and working towards relieving them however possible. They have founded children’s homes in Nepal, India and Bangladesh, and have intercepted thousands of women and children being trafficked across the Nepal/India border since 2009.
