If you love Vietnamese food and love a good cause, have I got just the thing for you. The Southeast Asia Children's Project (SACP) is holding a fundraiser on June 24.
Jim Keim, the director of SACP, wrote to let me know about the organization's efforts: "SACP is dedicated to the prevention of human trafficking and to the treatment of its victims. Our volunteers, mainly from the Bay Area, travel on a regular basis to Southeast Asia to work on various projects including the creation of a documentary on trafficking (the plight of Vietnamese women trafficked into Cambodia), in the training of social workers, and in the provision of educational scholarships to girls at risk for being sold into prostitution. We are currently active in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand."
More details on the fundraiser can be found here, but below is the general info:
June 24, 7-9pm
Devi Yoga Studio

P.S. Even if you can't make it to the event, you can contribute in other ways. To support the important work that SACP does, I'm putting a donation in the mail this week.
