ABOUT VALKYRIE GIVES
Valkyrie Gives is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) started by Valkyrie Racing. Valkyrie Gives was formed to aid women and children at risk - with a special focus of ending the human tragedy of child trafficking.
Valkyrie Gives provides our donors with the confidence that 100% of their gift is going directly to a vetted and proven project that will positively impact the lives of women and children at risk.
All administrative and other expenses associated with Valkyrie Gives are funded entirely by Valkyrie Racing.
Each partner project is personally vetted by meeting with them, investigating their operation, and reviewing their financial records.
In addition to providing funds, we look for ways we can become active participants in the organizations we support.
Together, we are stronger and more powerful- we invite you to join us in making a difference in the lives of the most vulnerable.
Child trafficking is the second-largest illegal business in the world. The biggest is drug trafficking.
Child trafficking produces over $150 Billion in illicit profit annually.
Research suggests there are between 25 and 40 million victims of human trafficking globally.
25% of these global victims are children -- and that number is growing year on year.
CHILD TRAFFICKING IS A TRAGEDY THAT NEEDS GREATER WORLDWIDE ATTENTION
Child trafficking is a global tragedy - an estimated 5.5 million children are recruited, transported, transferred, harbored, abused and exploited. Some are forced to work in brothels and strip clubs or for escort and massage services. Others may be forced to work in sweatshops, on construction sites or in houses as domestic servants; on the streets as child beggars, in wars as child soldiers, on farms, in traveling sales crews or in restaurants and hotels. Despite efforts to combat trafficking across the globe, this heinous crime continues to be wildly lucrative and is growing at an alarming rate.
OUR UNIQUE APPROACH
SUPPORTING GRASSROOTS NGOs
We support grassroot organizations -- focussing on prevention, rescue and restoration.
These critical organizations do the majority of the frontline work around the world and only receive a small portion of global funding -- your support has a big impact.
To date, Valkyrie Gives has raised nearly $200,000.

VALKYRIE GIVES FRONTLINE WORK
As part of Valkyrie Gives vision to be modern day Valkyries, we volunteer to investigate child trafficking crimes, rescue victims of trafficking, and support the work of local agencies and law enforcement to prosecute traffickers.
Through this involvement we gain first-hand experience, and are “the eyes and boots on the ground” for those who donate.
In addition, we do site visits to organizations we support to follow the impact of your donations.
Our participation in global media outlets maximizes awareness of the problems and solutions to child trafficking.
We are calling on those with compassionate hearts to join us and help change the lives of children at risk. We need your help to combat child trafficking.
#RaceToRescue is at the heart of Valkyrie Racing’s Project 356 World Rally Tour. We are racing six races on seven continents with the goal of raising awareness and resources to fight child trafficking around the globe.
ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
Renée Brinkerhoff, the founder of Valkyrie Racing and Valkyrie Gives, has a story to share of finding personal transformation, while pursuing a lifelong dream and confronting obstacles and fears while achieving that dream.
After experiencing success at the age of 57, in her debut race, as a driver in the Mexican road rally, La Carrera Panamericana, Renée realized that this accomplishment was a powerful platform to inspire others, and help women and children at risk. Thus, a 501(c)3 nonprofit was founded with the desire to be modern day Valkyries.
Valkyries are mythological female warriors with compassionate hearts, who rescued the wounded and dying from the field of battle, and carried them to heaven to heal and restore life.
It's important to us to hear your thoughts. Please reach out -we look forward to hearing from you.
Make a difference today. Help us have the impact that's needed.
