Starts today

Today marks the launch of Blue Dragon's 2013 major appeal, which we're calling: Whatever it takes.

Anyone who has read the stories here or looked over the Blue Dragon Facebook page knows the sort of work we do. We find kids in danger, get them out, and then look after them for the long term. And our strategy is simple: Whatever it takes.

If we know of a child enslaved in a factory, we find the factory and demand the release of the child. If we know of a girl in a brothel across the border, we travel to where ever she is and help her escape. If we meet a boy living on the streets, we help him sort out his family problems and give him a place to live and grow. That's just what we do.

To make that all happen, we need to put fuel in the motor. It's the topic we all hate to raise: money. But giving kids a home, helping a child escape slavery, sending a student to school: it all takes money.

Blue Dragon is getting ready now to face the challenges of the 2013-2014 cycle. We already know that there'll be plenty of challenges to deal with.

If you like what we do, if you want these kids to get the help they need, please help any way you can. Even a few dollars will help. The goal is to raise $192,000, and we can do that if everyone contributes their bit.
