Who’ll stand against it?

Syllable Lune

As I sit on my cozy couch this chilly December morn, drinking coffee after a breakfast of my favorite toast and jelly, I am enjoying the warmth of the heat and the quiet ambiance of my surroundings, and I am grateful for all I have.

My thoughts turn to those who are homeless, in shelters, or victims of human trafficking and abuse, or others trapped in lives of stress or poverty. The many who don’t have the comforts of home.

I pray for them, and do what I can to help them.

As I sit quietly

In my home’s cozy corner

My prayers travel far

This month I am an Advocate for Dressember which is an organization that raises awareness and funds to fight human trafficking and modern slavery worldwide.

Modern Slavery

Victims

Know no freedom

Mired in slavery

They pray and hope for a victor

To come

Cinquain

Modern slavery exists today in many places worldwide. Be it sexual exploitation, forced marriage, or forced labor, many women, men and children are victims.

You can help set them free by spreading awareness, making a donation to help one of the many organizations in their fight to stop this, or simply just pray that those who can help or intervene will do so.

I have teamed up with Dressember.org this month as a Advocate to spread awareness and raise funds. If you’d like to donate to my team’s campaign “Help Stop the Chains of Abuse” I would very much appreciate your support.

Handmade Origami Dress Ornaments I will be giving a free handmade Origami Dress Ornament to anyone who makes a donation of $5.00 or more by December 15th.
