Partner with the heart of God. End modern day slavery. Do not be silent. Do not turn a deaf ear to such a huge issue. Do not allow this to be an out of sight out of mind problem. Human trafficking is real and it is going on all around us. It is not something that only happens in third world countries. It it happening all across the United States as well! We cannot be silent. Those women and children need us to be their voice while they have lost theirs.
This month I have made a commitment to participate in the global movement called Dressember. Dressember is a fun and quirky way of raising money and raising awareness about a very serious issue. 100% of the funds that we raise are going straight to the International Justice Mission, to end the greatest social injustice of our time! Check out www.dressember.net to hear more about this movement and to make a donation!
