Day 8–Dressember 2019

Dressember 2019 Day 8Today I spent time with my grand-children, a couple of them I had to help through some difficult situations they were facing in life, and another came for supper and just to visit.  I enjoy any time I have to spend with them, and I am glad I am near them to help, listen, care and share.  Family time is very important to me.

That is why I am saddened to learn that every 1 in 4 victims of human trafficking in the world is a child.  A child that has been trafficked is stripped of a normal life and is in bondage to their traffickers, either due to sex trade or slavery, they have no freedom, no family, no love nor caring, and being young do not have the ability or knowledge of how to break away from the lifestyle they are trapped in.

Dressember supports the work of Saving Innocence,  A21 and Love146 who are organizations that provide aftercare to children who have been exploited.  Dressember also supports Thorn which is an organization that is building technology to defend children from sexual abuse online.

“I raise up my voice—not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard…we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.”
―Malala Yousafzai /Youngest Nobel Laureate
