Did someone say “Sale”?
Well, sort of.
A couple of weeks ago, my sister, Catherine, posted on a topic very near to her heart: Human Trafficking. Catherine is involved with an organization called Triad Ladder of Hope, which works to end the slavery happening right in our own back yards.
Slavery still exists, and it exists right here in North Carolina. (And probably in your state, too.)
Triad Ladder of Hope has seen evidence of gangs in the US – and right here in my own North Carolina – recruiting young girls and then passing them around to gang members, or pimping them out as sex slaves.
Did you know that? I didn’t. And chances are, neither do a lot of other people.
That’s why Triad Ladder is trying to get the word out. If you buy one of these cool t-shirts, (modeled by the gorgeous Ricky and Dionne), Triad Ladder will give two away to middle or high school students in North Carolina.
That means this secret gets out of the darkness, and into the light.
And we all know what happens in the Light.
