Give gifts of personal necessities to victims of sex trafficking and help them become survivors.
Mayo Clinic and The Link joined forces to create riseupgifts.org in an effort to shine a light on sex trafficking in Minnesota communities and inspire people to make a difference. Through the Rise Up gift registry, you can give a gift of personal necessities to help victims of sex trafficking become survivors. The Link will distribute these items to people in need.
The Link was founded in 1991 by former Minnesota Vikings players, Jim Marshall and Oscar Reed, who wanted to support youth in north Minneapolis who were being victimized by crime, getting involved in crime and who were struggling with poverty and homelessness. The Link is still based in their original vision and in north Minneapolis. The Link has grown from a two staff member organization with three programs to an organization that has 19 programs across the Twin Cities area, employs over 150 adult and youth staff members and supports nearly 3,000 youth and young families each year.
