BCM to raise money for trafficking victims

October 21, 2017

The Baptist Collegiate Ministry is part of a fundraising project aimed to benefit human
trafficking victims in China.

The BCM is currently selling coffee k-pods for one dollar and donating all of the money
to a Chinese bakery which helps victims of human trafficking.

Jessica Drezinski, the Colonels Against Trafficking vice president, explained how the
fundraiser aims to make a difference.

“So we just have coffee k-pods that we sell for a dollar, every dollar goes to a bakery in
China and that bakery has women who were in human trafficking. It’s a non-profit…in order for
them to pay monthly rent and just support the women, that’s where the money will go,” said
Drezinski.

The group is looking to go to China over spring break and donate the proceeds to the
bakery in person. Drezinski said she hopes that this project can help spread faith, as well as
benefit those in need.

“Well I’m a Christian, and the group is going to love on people and share the Gospel
with them. But on another level, human trafficking is a horrible thing and just being able to do a
small part, because as a college student you can’t just go save people,” said Drezinski.
