Sex Slavery - Be an abolitionist!

As we are focusing our attention this week to the work of Love146, let's take a look at the seriousness of the problem of sex slavery.

It is estimated that 2 children are sold into slavery every minute.

That's 2880 every day!

As of 2006 the number of children trafficked annually was estimated at 1.2 Million

The UN and other experts estimate the total market value of illicit human trafficking at roughly $32 Billion!

That makes trafficking on persons the second most lucrative crime in the world!

It is estimated that 27 million people are currently enslaved around the world.

All of this information and more can be found on at www.love146.org

This is a big problem! 100% of the money that we collect with the Luxury Fund is given away, 25% of it goes to Love146 who is working hard to end sex slave trade and restore the lives of freed slaves.


Think of what you might give up this week, so that you can put a few bucks in the Luxury Fund to help this cause.
