This year Worthwhile Wear is shifting its focus from overseas to something closer to home. In the final part of 2013 Worthwhile Wear will launch a new program called “The Well.” This is a long-term aftercare and housing program for women who have been sexually exploited or trafficked in and around the greater Philadelphia area. This year's fundraising goal is $50,000 to help in the launch of "The Well" program.

What can you expect at this SEMI-FORMAL evening out:
- Wonderful food & drinks
- Music and art
- Silent auction
- Learn more about the pandemic of sex trafficking
- Learn what we are doing about it and how you can get involved
- Handmade jewelry, Shirts and handbags made by rescued women

- Hear a personal story of triumph from our guest speaker; Shandra Woworuntu


About our Speaker: 

SHANDRA WOWORUNTU would not have been considered at risk of being trafficked. She would never have been considered vulnerable. And yet, when she was 25 years old, Shandra became a victim of human trafficking.

Shandra graduated from college with a major in Finance and Bank Management in her native Indonesia. After graduation, she became the manager of the Treasury Department of the Korea Exchange Bank in Indonesia, specializing in money market trading. She was a brilliant financial analyst and was well on her way to a very promising career. She was also an avid human rights activist who spoke out on behalf of labor rights. READ MORE
