Well, I made it!! Dressember was a great month!
While I did not get a picture uploaded every day, I was able to wear a dress everyday this month to show my support and bring attention and awareness to the issue of #SexTrafficking.
Many of you have asked me what it's all about...
and THAT is why I participated in this cause!
To make you ask questions about #ModernDaySlavery.
While "getting dressed" each day, I thought about women and little girls (and yes little boys too) who are trafficked each day/year and are held in captivity by those who are money hungry, evil and dark. I cannot imagine the horrors that these precious souls have suffered and continue to suffer.
I set myself a goal to donate $31 ($1/day) for the month as I was able to wear a dress each day. That amount does not seem like much...
Little is Much When God is In It. *
Did you know???
An estimated 27 Million are held in bondage around the globe
(YES even in the USA!!)
Only 1-2% of victims are ever rescued
The Average AGE of a trafficking victim is 12 years old...

I am not sure what I will do or how I will continue to be involved in this issue of social justice.
But I do know that I am praying and will do what God places in front of me.
As I said... Little is MUCH when God is in it...
and His Word clearly tells us that we were meant to be FREE.
You can find out more about Human Trafficking on the internet, but here are a few resources you may find helpful as you seek to be a part of the #FreedomMovement in our generation.

I am believing God to Set the Captives Free!! AND I am believing that my effort, though small, will be honored in His sight. Will you join me??
