The Somaly Mam Foundation will host a very special charity event in Santa Barbara this weekend that will see participants skydive from 18,000 feet to raise $18,000 towards the eradication of slavery.

18FOR18, the first annual Sky’s The Limit event for SMF, will be hosted by actress Serinda Swan, and also feature Pretty Little Liars’ Shay Mitchell. Other celebrity supporters/sponsors include Russell Simmons, Wilmer Valderrama, True Blood’s Mehcad Brooks, Avatar’s Laz Alonso and many more.

Serinda Swan recently went to Cambodia and visited one of the Somaly Mam rescue shelters as well as the Voices for Change headquarters. After hearing the stories, and seeing what these women and children face everyday, she knew that there was something she could do, so 18FOR18 was born.

The Somaly Mam Foundation is a nonprofit 501c(3) organization dedicated to the eradication of slavery worldwide, with a special focus on Southeast Asia where the trafficking of women and girls is widespread.

The event takes place on Saturday, October 8. More information on how you can take part or sponsor a jumper, click here.
