#EnditMovement

Normally I won't be doing two posts in a week but today is a special day. You may say 'Hey Mike, it's Thursday, What's special about that?" Nothing inherently is special about today except that today is Shine a Light on Slavery Day. You may have noticed a lot of red x's today. It's in honor of a movement to remove Slavery from the world. Right now, today, there is somewhere around 26 Million people who are living in Slavery across the world, including in this country, in this state and maybe even in your town. We all know that Slavery is wrong and we actually have the ability to do something about it. This is not a political issue, it's a life issue that gets solved with awareness and people taking action.

The End It Movement started out of a Passion Conference and since 2013 they have raised more than 4 Million dollars to fight slavery across the world. This money is going to 66 different organizations fighting across the world. Right now there is slavery happening in 167 different countries.

Today's post is about awareness, if you are interested in more information go to:

End It Movement
The A21 Campaign
International Justice Mission

If you want to do something draw a red x on your hand and upload it to all of your social media accounts, donate money, tell your family, friends, neighbors, the weird people that live down the road.

We can't just sit idly by at let this happen. Every little thing you do can make a difference.
