i heart A21

Just want to take a minute to tell you guys about an organization that I'm passionate about. The A21 Campaign is a totally awesome organization that works to prevent human trafficking in countries and cities around the world. I've had the excellent opportunity to work with them a couple times on my trips to Greece. 

"The A21 Campaign exists to abolish injustice in the 21st century through a comprehensive system of preventative measures, victim protection, prosecution of violators, and strategic partnerships."

Human Trafficking is a real problem in the world today. Here are some facts:

• Every 30 seconds, another person becomes a victim.
• There are an estimated 27 million in bondage across the globe.
• Only 1-2% of victims are ever rescued and 1 in 1,000,000 traffickers are ever convicted. 

A21 has had so many success stories recently... but the work is so far from finished. If you would like to donate to A21... please click here

We need to be in it to end it. Because we can.
