Today is KEY2FREE day for A21Campaign. I briefly mentioned this organization from Catalyst but I want to share some more with you. A21Campaign is an effort that attempts to eradicate human trafficking.

Sometimes helplessness overtakes our sorrow but A21Campaign is in ACTION and attempts to help in four different ways.
They are rescuing these ladies, caring for them and then holding the perpetrators accountable. What else could you ask for? Due to the anonymity of many of the victims and actually the location of the centers, we are not able to help in person as much as some of us would like in the US. But there are things we can do.
Most importantly is TODAY wear a key necklace as part of their KEY2FREE day. Today you will have a chance to raise awareness for human trafficking. Tell anyone and everyone that will listen. There are 27 million people just waiting for us to do something about it. As a bonus, if you wear a key, you can submit your photo and have a chance to win an iPod Touch!

I think just this post covers 1, 2 and 15! So if you have a blog, consider posting about this today! And beyond that, consider keeping this list handy and we can all make sure we are doing just as much as possible to FREE our fellow brothers and sisters.
