This Wednesday (11th Jan) is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. To participate I joined over 100 other comic creators in creating a fabulous wallpaper based on the theme EPIC SNOWBALL FIGHT! To get it you need to donate to Comic Creator’s For Freedom and the money goes to charities dedicated to the prevention of human trafficking and supporting its victims. Namely these are Love 146 and Gracehaven House. This is a very good cause so please donate and belive me when I say the wallpaper is EPIC and well worth it! If you don’t believe me just look at the preview below. The Donations Drive will last for two weeks, from Monday January 9th – 20th.
You may not know it, but there are currently 27 million enslaved people worldwide- more than double the number of enslaved Africans during the trans-Atlantic slave trade. UNICEF estimates that 1.2 million children every year are sold into slavery, most of it sexual. The US Department of Justice estimates 16,000 victims of human trafficking are brought into the United States every year. Unlike slavery in the past, what is happening today is happening in secret. It won’t end until awareness is raised, and people like you and me take a stand.
