01.23.12 Please help support Ride2Rescue - Four young Australian men cycling from London to Melbourne to raise the awareness of child trafficking...


Each day, there are children all over the world being tricked, forced and sold into slavery, hazardous labour, combat and prostitution. Millions end up in brothels, factories, sweatshops and private homes. We don’t see them or hear their suffering.

These children have no voice.

Simply because they don’t have a birth certificate or fixed address, many of these children are deprived of their basic rights to protection, to go to school and to receive healthcare. World Vision Australia’s Child Rescue raises funds to provide rehabilitation and support for children who are at risk of, or have been the victims of exploitation and abuse. It also supports children who are made vulnerable by terrible circumstances, and who cannot be reached by Child Sponsorship.



Ride2Rescue’s purpose is to raise the awareness of child trafficking and raise much needed funds. For as little as $15 a month you can help support this important initiative to rescue, rehabilitate and protect children. To put things in perspective the cost of supporting Child Rescue is about the same cost of purchasing one coffee a week.
"We are proud to be able to support the amazing Ride2Rescue London to Melbourne cycle trip.

We have known Daniel Seehusen for almost a year now and for him to be part of such an ambitious adventure comes as no surprise, because he has such tremendous drive, energy, self-assurance and a genuinely big heart.

Child trafficking is a global problem and one of humanity's most terrible crimes, and one which should be exposed and tackled as a matter of urgency. We applaud these five guys for their commitment to this cause, and wish them all the luck in the world."

- Trudie Styler and Sting.

Normally everyone forgets about tragedies a few weeks or months after they happen. Not so with this group. Despite it being two full years since the 7.0 magnitude earthquake leveled the capital city of Port-au-Prince, more than 40 high profile personalities will use their social media accounts to rekindle interest in helping Haiti. The lineup, which includes Maroon 5, Sting, Alicia Keys, Lady Antebellum, Hugh Jackman, Sheryl Crow, Tim McGraw, Martha Stewart, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Don Cheadle, Deepak Chopra and NBA stars Paul Pierce, Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul, has a combined total of 125 million social media followers...
