END IT

Friends,

Today I am inspired to talk about an issue that is tugging at my heartstrings…Human Trafficking.

Human Trafficking is modern-day slavery. Human Trafficking fuels growth of organized crime, undermining health, safety, and security, and the basic needs of humanity. It is the fastest growing crime in the world” (www.A21.org).

It absolutely crushes my heart to hear stories of young girls and women (and some boys and men too) being sold around the world as slaves. It is not a widely publicized topic where I live, but that doesn’t deny the fact that it is happening not just here in the U.S. but likely more locally then we realize.

Here’s the thing. IT HAS TO STOP! I know there are mothers of young girls out there. The thought of this happening to my daughter or anyone’s daughter is unfathomable.

WHAT CAN WE DO?

Awareness. TODAY draw a red X on your hand to show slavery still exists and we won’t stand for it! This movement is to help end Human Trafficking. To help raise awareness to this movement and help those stuck in Human Trafficking.

About believingjoy

Who am I? That's a good question! I am Jen...a blemished woman who enjoys a tidbit of tidyness mixed with dash of craziness to create a life that is simply mine! I adore my 4 children and their daddy. I love little bits of wild like tattoos and things that make us unique. I like to mix vintage with new and strive for progress over perfection! I believe that not a single person on this planet is perfect and that's okay, it's what makes us who we are. My desire is to find joy is all circumstances with a smile and a choice to believe.
