Good Deed Friday...

I'm sure many of you are aware of a fast growing stomach turning industry...Human Trafficking!

It is something that we don't want to think about or talk about...but it is a topic that deserves our attention.

Human trafficking is now the third and fastest growing criminal industry in the world. It is estimated that 1.8 million children are trafficked for sex in virtually every country, including our own.

The Body Shop is Helping to Raise Awareness on this serious injustice to children! They have partnered up with ECPAT (End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes) and the Somaly Mam Foundation to raise funds and awareness to combat this terrible epidemic.

Starting this week, The Body Shop will have Soft Hands Kind Heart Hand Cream in their stores and online for purchase. All proceeds will go to support ECPAT. All net proceeds from the sale of their Bag for Life and gift bags will go to the Somaly Mam Foundation. Your purchase of these items will support their mission to raise awareness, fund prevention programs and bring immediate relief to children and young people affected by sex trafficking in our country and around the world.

So come on, lets lend a HELPING HAND today!!!
