The Body Shop: Anti-Slavery Day Monday 18th October♥

"If you thought slavery was abolished in the UK in 1834 you are very much mistaken! With more
than 2.5 million people trafficked every year, human trafficking is the world’s third-largest criminal
industry after illegal drugs and guns, with a staggering 1.2 million children and young people are
estimated to be trafficked each year and sexually abused."

It is heartbreaking to know that people are still being treated in such horrible ways, and on the 18th October every year, coinciding with the European Union’s Anti-
Trafficking Day we all should take some time (or money) to help out and do some good.

Something as easy as signing The Body Shop's petition calling for the government to put it place greater care and protection for child victims, go here to sign it: 

 “Stop Sex Trafficking of Children and Young People”

Ive posted about this 2 times on my blog! I'm glad to see another beauty member of the community post it as well. I think this is a serious issue to raise up.

Hopefully with every post it will spread and some action will take forth! :)
