26 Seconds

26 Seconds
mixed media
        UNESCO (United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization) estimates that every 26 seconds, a child is trafficked into slavery, many of whom are trafficked into the sex slave trade.  This is a tragedy beyond comprehension that our present generation is witness to.  Many of us wonder how we can help - how we can possibly make a difference.  One way is to support organizations that rescue these children out sexual slavery and then protect, restore and empower them to live healthy, productive lives. 
        One such organization that is close to my heart is Destiny Rescue. One of their latest fund-raising projects is called "Her Red Shoes" - you can read the story behind the infamous red shoes and the little girl they belonged to HERE    Since January is Human Trafficking Awareness month, it is a good time to think about how we can help.
