So I know that I haven’t posted on here in a while, but I had to take the time to post about this.
Let me give a little backstory first.
August 2017, my wife attended a conference for women and when she came back, she told me all about one of the speakers there who really touched her heart. His name is Tim Ballard.
She told me all about Operation Underground Railroad and what they are doing to stop child trafficking and child sex slavery. She also told me about how on one of the missions that Tim Ballard was on, he became instantly connected to two kids that they saved who were brother and sister. And they ended up adopting them. But because they were in Haiti, the adoption process was taking over three years to finalize.
So fast forward to last week. We had our annual ClickFunnels user conference Funnel Hacking Live with over 3,000 attendees.
On day 1, we showed the documentary that ClickFunnels helped put together for Operation Underground Railroad and it was absolutely incredible. We had donation forms at the back of the room, and we raised over $650K for them during the event. ClickFunnels founders Russell Brunson and Todd Dickerson matched the donations dollar for dollar bringing the total event donations to $1.3M which is absolutely incredible.
It was extremely difficult not to get emotional during the documentary. However, it was even more difficult when everyone was coming up to the table to fill out the donation forms and seeing what everyone was giving to support this cause.
We also gave shirts away to those who donated and I love these shirts. They sum up O.U.R.’s mission perfectly.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the best part, Tim left right after speaking to us Wednesday night to finally go pick up his kids in Haiti with his wife.
We were able to Skype them into the event Saturday right before Tony Robbins spoke to let them know how much we were able to raise. It was awesome to be able to see him with his kids in his home in Utah.
I sent this pic to my wife from the event. I absolutely love the huge smiles on these kids faces.
It is so incredible what Tim Ballard and Operation Underground Railroad are doing to save children’s lives all over the world.
