Founder’s Story

Mitzi Unretouched250px
On April 11, 2019, Mitzi Perdue heard anti-trafficking leader Paul Hutchinson speak. It changed her life.

She wanted to donate to his organization, the Child Liberation Foundation, but knew that would mean cutting back on other charities that were counting on her contributions. Mitzi had an idea. What if she auctioned the 16th century De Medici desk her late parents had given her and donated the proceeds to the Child Liberation Foundation organization? The desk was one of her favorite possessions, but she knew that if the proceeds from its sale raised money to rescue children from this horror, that would be worth more to her than the desk itself.

She wondered if other people found themselves in similar situations, wanting to help charities but without available funds. Would they also be interested in selling heirlooms to contribute to this cause? She began vetting the idea with her friends in media, business, finance, Hollywood, sports, high society, and even royalty. 

 

They all agreed: Donating something of value to be auctioned with the proceeds going to stop human trafficking would be far more meaningful than owning any particular possession.

Mitzi put the final piece into place to bring this bold idea to life by finding an auction house that would generously agree to hold an auction for Win This Fight and waive their commission fees.
Because of the economic uncertainty caused by COVID-19, the date of the heirloom auction has been pushed back to 2022. However, we are still laying the groundwork for it.
Meanwhile, Win This Fight is working on another approach to combatting human trafficking. You’ll be hearing more about this as we get further along! Be sure and sign up for our weekly newsletter!
