The overwhelming horror that exists in our world due to the exploitation of the most vulnerable can, and most often does, paralyze us from doing something about it. But help doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Just because the problem is big doesn’t mean any one of us has to be or come up with the solution. If we each do a little something we can part of a bigger solution.
Join a "go team" to raise awareness and funds
to help Yobel continue to bring sustainable
solutions for people around the world.
Working together we can continue to eliminate extreme poverty, unjust labor and human trafficking in our community and around the world.
What's a Go Team?
A Go Team is a group or an individual that wants to do something to relieve poverty. We want you to use whatever resources, skills, hobbies, etc. you already have as a platform to raise money and tell everyone about Yobel! Don't sit around waiting for us to have a fundraiser that works for you, YOU have the ability to do something! Take initiative and be creative, people are more likely to listen to you if it is authentic and true to you. Don't forget to get your friends in on it with you.
What should I do?
Hike a mountain, run a race, dance for an entire day, and do it to raise awareness for unjust labor
For your birthday or special holiday, instead of asking for presents, ask for donations to end poverty
Host an Event
Organize a party, concert, or other fun event as a fundraiser on behalf of Yobel
Are you good at video games? Board games? Growing a beard? Painting? Baking Cupcakes? Giving high fives? Whatever it is, do your part to change the world!

Jen Jones runs 100 miles
This is a great example of someone doing what they love, and doing for Yobel! Jen LOVES to run. So, why not take it to the next level and run a crazy 100 mile race in the mountains? She wanted to do it anyway, and she loves Yobel and what we do, so she chose to combine the 2 and raise money and awareness for Yobel's mission while training.
