Lauren Edens and Tanzania

My friend, Lauren Edens, is living and working in Tanzania with an organization called Courage to Be You. They are working to free young girls from being sex slaves and are building a home for these girls to be rehabilitated and cared for in a safe environment. Please watch Lauren's video. At the end of the video, you will have a chance to vote for it. If they win the contest, the guy that shot the video will receive $10,000 to use to make a full documentary. This would help continue to raise awareness of this world-wide problem.
