Thanks for helping Rescue Girls from Sex Slavery
If you answered “Yes!” then keep reading…
First, I want to thank those of you who donated to help me rescue girls from sex slavery.
I said I would cut off one inch of hair for every $100 dollars raised. I raised almost $600, but went ahead and cut off over 10 inches of hair anyway. I didn’t get enough to shave my head though!
Here are the Before and After shots:
That second shot was with my webcam, which obviously as terrible color….
Anyway, if you would have helped rescue slaves from slavery, you still can. There is more slavery today than at any other time of history, and most of these slaves are young girls. How much more dire could it get?
If you are somehow still not aware of the crazy epidemic of slavery in our world (and here in the United States!) RIGHT NOW, go see some of the stats on this page about Forced Prostitution.
And just think about this: Current estimates say that about 12 million Africans were shipped across the Atlantic for slavery from the 16th to the 19th centuries.
But according to Human Trafficking Statistics, there are CURRENTLY 12.3 million slaves RIGHT NOW. Yes, this year.
And many of them are children who are forced into prostitution. The average age is 12-14 years old. Most are girls. California has 3 of the 13 highest child sex trafficking areas. Some of them are raped 30-40 times EACH DAY.
Human Trafficking and child slavery is more common today than it was during the 300 years of slavery of our past. ⇦ Tweet that!
There are more slavery victims this year than the total number of slaves during the entire 300 years of slavery in the past. ⇦ Tweet that!
If you want to help, our favorite organization is the International Justice Mission.
