Free a Girl organises “Lock me Up – Free a Girl”, with the objective of liberating as many young girls as possible from prostitution. It all started in 2011 in the Netherlands. During the 8th edition of Lock me Up - Free a Girl, from Monday 13th of May until Sunday 19th of May 2019, several cages from 1 by 2 meter are distributed throughout the Netherlands at restaurants and companies. These cages are symbolic to the cages of Indian brothels. Participants are willingly locked up for 12 hours and each will collect a minimum of €2.500 for fundraising. Every location will have 2 cages for at least five, six or seven days to assure that a minimum of €25.000 will be fundraised. The total amount of fundraisig will be announced on Monday 20th of May 2019. All the 290 participants in 2018 have fundraised over more than €514.000! Therefore, Free a Girl strives to fundraise the magic amount of 1 million euro for 2019. Are you joining us in the battle against child prostititution?
Lock me Up - Free a Girl is an initiative from the Free a Girl foundation and ambassador Wimmy Hu.
