The Twelfth Day of Freedom

12th Day of Freedom: Donate $5 to an anti Human trafficking organization of your choice. Encourage your friends to also donate to your favorite organization as well!

Of all the ways to help fight trafficking, this might just be the most simple. All it takes is a few minutes to donate a small amount of money that can make a big difference to an organization, like the Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking. Non-profits are very aware that most people can’t afford to donate large sums of money and they don’t expect people to. However, many people are able to part with a mere $5. Perhaps even that’s too much, but $1 or $2 is more manageable. What’s important, besides the funds, is that you’re actively thinking about human trafficking and trying to stop it. Yes, the money is absolutely vital for organizations to continue to help survivors of trafficking, but just as important is the fact that you are joining that fight and actually making a difference in the lives of those who have escaped from trafficking and the lives of those still stuck in its clutches that these groups are trying to help. Your $5 could be the difference between a meal and going hungry or a warm blanket or falling asleep cold.Don’t let anyone discourage you from donating or getting involved because they tell you one person can’t make a difference. You absolutely matter! If everyone thought that way, there would be no FCAHT or other organizations like them. Government funds only go so far, so it’s up to the rest of us to help them help the men, women and children who have survived or who are still stuck. Here is the link to donate:
