Ride to Freedom

A few weeks ago, Mr. Nielson was honored to join
the jump team for Operation Underground Railroad (or O.U.R.)
He and some of the coolest guys you'll ever meet prepared physically 
and emotionally for their mission in the Dominican Republic.
Their mission was to "steal" 26 slave children ages 11-14,
boys and girls, but mostly girls.
It's sad and horrible and the details are enough to make you sick,
 but the mission was successful and these children are free now. 
Mr. Nielson was part of the O.U.R. undercover team
who acted as purchasers to the child-traffickers.
They actually "purchased" the children to save them,
then helped the government prosecute the bad guys.
The O.U.R experts plan each mission carefully so it's legal and safe.
And the countries they work in are 100% behind O.U.R. guys
(some of whom are former Navy Seals and CIA operatives).

Watch the video on O.U.R.: 

Mr. Nielson returned home after the mission and hugged our Little Nies. 
 I think his heart was breaking, but he was also so thankful. 
 He had seen some pretty hard and sad images.  He was overwhelmed.
After he showered up he slept most of the day
since it was pretty intense and he was a little sleep-deprived.
I love you Mr. Nielson.  You are my brave man.
Also to note: You should know Tim Ballard because he is a hero.
He is someone that our children need to know.
He is someone our sons need to emulate and grow up to be like.
He is everything a man ought to be.
(Thanks Tim from the bottom of our hearts.)
((also, Tim kind of looks like Paul Walker and has a sexy voice))
(above: This is instagram that I got when the jump was complete!
  I was so thrilled.

But there are millions more waiting to be saved and waiting for help. 
We can help.
Please donate to OUR and help them fund their next "jump" (or mission).

Also, be on the look out for the upcoming movie "The Abolitionists"
which will be a fill-length documentary on Tim Ballard and his team.
 Due out soon.
