What is "1000 Breaths"

On the last day of the year in 2010 and 2011, a special event called "1000 Breaths" awakened audiences to their own innate power of freedom as well as supported a movement to free the enslaved children trapped into a prostituted lifestyle they do not truly choose.

What started as the 1000 Breaths fundraiser event has become a movement for the freedom of us all. This blog expands now to encompass all the good works being done in the name of "freedom for all" as heard on the "FREEDOM FOR ALL" Internet Radio show.

Filmmaker takes on sex industry that shatters 100,000 US teens each year

For Immediate Release

Contact: Jennifer Geronimo
(619) 713-6756 - Jennifer@Indoctrinated.org

The statistics are staggering. UNICEF reports that two children per minute are trafficked for sexual exploitation in the world. Each year 100,000 teens in the United States fall victim to a sex industry that takes advantage of minors under the age of 18. (Source: Department of Justice). Locally, the FBI has identified the San Diego region as a “High Intensity Child Prostitution Area.”

So what is being done about this tragic issue? For one, San Diego filmmaker Jim Ellis has produced a short education film – “Indoctrinated: The Grooming of Our Children Into Prostitution” – in order to create awareness about and change around this issue. “Indoctrinated” – a 30-minute documentary sponsored by the San Diego County Office of Education – uncovers the scope and destructive nature of child sex trafficking and teaches parents and youth ways to protect the girls and the community. The film does so by revealing the tactics used by pimps and gangs to recruit, groom, psychologically coerce and indoctrinate victims into a life of sexual exploitation and violence … a life that no one would ever choose.

Says Ellis, “As a filmmaker, I was present as females talked about the horrors they have been through in a lifestyle they didn’t truly want. It’s horrific the physical torture and mind-games they endured, and I’m proud to be able to share their triumph over their abuse, as well as give hope to a community that must wake up to the nightmare these girls face on a daily basis.”

Two versions of this film have been prepared: a student version in partnership with the San Diego Office of Education and The ACTION Network, as well as a community edition which will be made available worldwide. The office of education will make the film available to educators and school forums throughout the county, and already there is interest from other parts of the nation to present the film.

Three years in the making, the film includes interviews with former prostituted youth, law enforcement, a former pimp, and parents of victims, as well as police ride-along footage.

A premiere screening for selected school administrators and city officials takes place Tuesday, December 6 at the University of San Diego.

The worldwide release of the film will be at 11 a.m., Saturday, December 31 at St. Marks Sanctuary (3502 Clairemont Dr. San Diego, CA 92117). The worldwide showing of the film will be part of a larger event - 1000 Breaths II - that includes a musical concert by international recording artist Karl Anthony and a “release party” to celebrate the release of the film and to ceremonially release anything that binds us as individuals. This event will also be a fundraiser to help disseminate the film. For more information and to register, go to http://www.1000Breaths.com

Wow, You Gotta Hear This One

Wow! Guess who we have on the Freedom for All Radio Show this Friday! Kendra Wilkinson! Is there anyone who is more free with their expression, feelings, speech, body? This woman rocks!

Television personality, Playboy Playmate and glamor girl Kendra Wilkinson is best known from her self-titled E! hit reality series “Kendra.” Entering into its 4th season, the show follows Kendra, NFL player husband Hank, and son Hank IV through their adventurous lives. Between life in the spotlight, raising her toddler son and the challenges of being an NFL wife, the show is a fun-filled, action-packed look into the world of Kendra Wilkinson.

Wilkinson, 26, got her start on one of E! Entertainment’s highest rated television shows, “The Girls Next Door.” She co-starred on the reality hit for five seasons, until 2009 when Wilkinson closed that chapter in her life and opened a new one. That year she got married, welcomed the birth of her son Hank IV and debuted her self-titled show.

Originally from San Diego, Kendra knew little about the world of Playboy before her move to Los Angeles, but she quickly found herself attracted to the carefree, frolicking lifestyle that it offers. She first met Hef while body painted for his 78th birthday party at the Playboy Mansion. Before their first date, Hef asked Kendra to move in and live as one of his girlfriends.

Since the debut of “The Girls Next Door,” Kendra has appeared on the cover of numerous magazines and has enjoyed everything from television to movie appearances. Most recently, Kendra was part of the cast of the popular ABC show “Dancing with the Stars” with professional dance partner Louis Van Amstel. Kendra’s first book “Sliding In to Home” debuted at number four on the New York Times bestseller list when released in 2010. Her follow-up, “Being Kendra” was released in September 2011.

Listen to the show on Friday November 11th at 2 pm PST or in the archives: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/freedomforall/2011/11/11/guest-kendra-wilkinson
