It’s easier to change the channel when dogs with sad eyes and starving children are on the screen. It’s easier to look the other way when you see people sleeping under bridges or too-young girls walking the street corner. But when a friend puts a cause in front of your face, it’s hard to look away. I hope you’ll open your heart and stay with me for a moment…
When my friend Erin Giles came to me with her creation — End Sex Trafficking Day — I was grateful for her caring in action and astounded at the facts:
Today, in 2013 over 27 million people are enslaved. Just try to wrap your head around that number for a minute… That’s more than in any other time in history and it’s a problem that knows no borders. And you know what?! It almost made me feel guilty. How could I not know? Here many of us are with the privilege of building an amazingly free life for ourselves and almost 30 million people are trapped. The guilt alchemized with my resolve to take part in changing that. After all, we are the keys to freedom.
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
We can’t unknow the statistic, so let’s do something about it.
Erin is setting out to raise $25,000 for 5 non profits that are hitting the ground everyday, working to free the enslaved. She’s got 2 days left and under $6000 to go. We can do this.
