Did you know that there are more slaves in the world today than there were 200 years ago? Did you know that many of them are children, especially young girls?
As a mother of 7, I have a heart not just for my children, but for those children who find themselves victims of this atrocity. I feel compelled to somehow make a difference for these innocents.
But what's a mom living in rural tranquility of America supposed to do?
is a Christian organization dedicated to being modern day abolitionists. They are
committed to doing what they can to set the captive free!
They offer resources for families with children to not only educate
but to present tangible ways for families to join them in this crucial campaign.
Quoted from their website:
Families for Justice.
Discover the lives of modern-day slaves and the rescuers who are helping them! Four easy, fun activities and an accompanying DVD will help you and your children learn more about oppression and the passion God has for justice. The kit also includes an "offering bank" that gives your family the chance to help rescue victims of slavery through a special program called "Loose Change to Loosen Chains." This is appropriate for families with preschoolers through middle school. Your high school students can even get involved by helping present the family night information.
