All Kinds of Blinds owner takes on 5-day Freedom Challenge to combat Sex Trafficking Worldwide
Angela Conroy, one of the co-owners of All Kinds of Blinds, has accepted the challenge is a 5-day wilderness backpacking hike in Catalina Island, California. We will be walking approximately 40 miles. Angela Conroy will be paying all my own expenses but Angela Conroy has committed to raising $5,000 to support the projects of the Freedom Challenge that are in the most heavily trafficked areas of the globe – specifically Greece, Moldova, Southern Asia, and areas of Africa. Over 50% of those trafficked come from these areas. Will you help Angela Conroy to meet this challenge?
Angela Conroy Story
God has put it on my heart to give my time, my resources, and my life – to reflect the heart of a servant, and to look to the interests of others. I want to be the hands and feet of Christ, and the voice for those who have no voice.
Researchers estimate that 40 million people are enslaved worldwide, generating over $150 billion each year in illicit profits for traffickers. 71% of those enslaved are women and children. Slavery today is a hidden crime, making it harder for the public to see, and for those in slavery to call out for help.
I can’t stand by while this is happening around our world. The Freedom Challenge (https://www.thefreedomchallenge.com/about), is a movement of passionate women dedicated to freeing oppressed and enslaved women and children around the world. We do this by participating in physical challenges that test our limits while raising funds and awareness to combat these dark social injustices and set women and children on the pathway to freedom.
Our mission is:
DO GOOD – help free women and children.
DO MORE – than you ever thought physically possible.
DO IT TOGETHER – connect with women who have a heart for a hurting world.
I am going to be physically training for this challenge in the next 11 months. come join me on my workouts and my morning treks; Id love your company! Importantly though, I need your financial support – not for me, but for those women and children we want to reach and bring to freedom.

More about The Freedom Challenge
It’s easy to think of slavery as something in the past. But in 2019, an estimated 40 million people are still enslaved around the world. Over 70% of those enslaved people are women and children.
The Freedom Challenge helps victims of slavery with a “prevent, develop, rescue, restore” model:
- They aim to prevent slavery through education and skills training.
- They aim to develop a society without slavery, by supporting women with vocational training and savings programs.
- They aim to rescue victims of slavery and trafficking and provide them with a safe place to heal.
- They aim to restore a better life for victims, through medical care, counseling, and skills training.
Angela hopes to raise $5,000 to support the projects of the Freedom Challenge that are in the most heavily trafficked areas of the globe – specifically Greece, Moldova, Southern Asia, and areas of Africa. Over 50% of those trafficked come from these areas.
