The Black-n-Bluegrass Roller Girls’ Big Hits and Big Hearts Campaign

The Black-n-Bluegrass Roller Girls play the full-contact sport of roller derby but our passion does not stop there. Each member of the Black-n-Blue Nation is a part of our local community which is filled with great organizations trying to make a difference. We do what we can to help these community organizations make our communities better!

At each BBRG home bout we feature a local charity or community organization to raise awareness and involvement!

Please check back for updates, events, and opportunities to come and join the Black-n-Bluegrass support the bluegrass! Are you a local charity organization interested in teaming up with BBRG or requesting a donation? Click Here



Destiny Rescue: Saving Children From Human Trafficking

Our Big Hits and Big Hearts Campaign would like to welcome Destiny Rescue! Destiny Rescue is a non-profit organization that rescues, restores, and reintegrates children out of the sex trafficking industries. Right now, they operate in 6 countries abroad and fundraiser/advocate in the US, Australia and New Zealand. In the funding countries, we partner with organizations and churches seeking to raise awareness of the issue and help people get connected with how they can help and make a difference.

RESCUE THE SEXUALLY EXPLOITED AND ENSLAVED

Destiny Rescue rescues children from red light districts, brothels, and sexually abusive situations.

RESTORE THE ABUSED

Destiny Rescue provides rescued children the intensive care and love they need to recover from the traumatic effects of sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. We provide them with medical help, counseling, schooling, vocational training and all daily needs required to be integrated back into society successfully. In addition, we provide a safe protective place for them to live, grow and experience the unconditional love of God – a place where they can feel valued and esteemed; a place where they can be kids again.

PROTECT THE VULNERABLE

Destiny Rescue offers programs that help at-risk children and families reduce their children’s chances of being sold, lured or trafficked into the sex-trade.

EMPOWER THE POOR

Destiny Rescue believes in empowering the poor and giving them a hand up in life, not a handout. Our philosophy and goal is to help them become self-sustaining through one of our many assistance programs. Simply put, we don’t want to create a welfare system where children and families become dependent on our organization, but rather have a chance to become profitable through hard work and common sense.

BE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS

Destiny Rescue is committed to being a voice for the sexually exploited, vulnerable and poor who, in most cases, can’t speak up for themselves. We believe everyone has a right to be heard, especially those crying out for justice. Many times they are overlooked or tossed aside by society, but we are determined to be their voice – motivating and inspiring influencers to get involved and make a difference in the lives of the voiceless.

The holidays are coming up and what better way to celebrate than to make a difference for children in our area. NECCO is a local foster care agency that provides therapeutic foster care services to over 200 children in Northern Kentucky who have been unable to remain in the care of their families. Each year NECCO tries to deliver at least three presents to each child and sadly, for many of their kids, these presents will be the first Christmas presents that they ever receive. As a non-profit agency we rely heavily on the generosity and support from our neighbors and community to provide for the needs of these kids. The holidays are especially difficult for kids in foster care so please consider bringing a donation to the November 7th bout and help the Black-n-Blue Nation bring some cheer this year to the families of NECCO!
