Pink Cross Foundation Champions Women

I first discovered Shelley Lubben and the Pink Cross Foundation through social media site MySpace. Shelley uses the application to reach out to porn stars and those addicted to pornography. It’s just one of several tools employed by her faith-based 501(c)(3) charity.

The Pink Cross Foundation offers emotional, financial and transitional support to adult industry workers. The foundation also reaches out to those struggling with pornography offering education and resources for recovery.

Shelley was once a porn actress and prostitute. After years of abuse within the industry she was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depressive Disorder, Impulse Control Disorder and substance abuse. She was prescribed anti-depressants, Lithium and sleeping pills and recommended psychiatric counseling for many years.

She eventually reached a breakthrough. According to thepinkcross.org:

After finding God through Christianity and enduring eight hard years of recovery at the Champion’s Center, Shelley conquered the horrible effects of her past and became a Champion in life through the power of Jesus Christ. Ten years later Shelley began her mission to go back to the porn industry to reach out to porn stars and sex workers offering them solid help and hope. Shelley is also on a mission to smash the illusion of porn and help people overcome pornography addiction.

Shelley and her husband Garrett founded the Pink Cross Foundation. In addition to their work with porn stars and porn addicts, they combat community deterioration due to pornography and prostitution, educate the general public and attempt to influence legislation surrounding the porn industry.

Shelley Lubben and the Pink Cross Foundation can be found on MySpace, FaceBook and YouTube. The website offers a blog, forums and chat. Porn is not glamorous. Get the facts. Get help.
