Honestly, can you even imagine being SOLD by your parents to then be expected to live in sexual enslavement indefinitely? Just in case you just read over those words... SOLD. BY. YOUR. PARENTS, or SEXUAL. ENSLAVEMENT. Can you imagine?? You probably cannot imagine it because behind your laptop, Ipad, cellphone, or however you are reading this right now, you are supported by a government that protects and fights for YOUR personal civil liberties.
But not in India. In India, women and children are sold and used for the purposes of forced prostitution, abduction/ illegal adoption, and slavery EVERY DAY. It is reported that over 30,000 women and children are forced into these horrific, unimaginable situations each year (ABC news).
HOW CAN YOU HELP??
Off the Mat, into the World will be traveling to India in 2013 to offer money, time, support, and HOPE to the grass-roots organizations in India fighting this genocide of spirit. I am participating in ONE LOVE DALLAS, on April 28th, 2012, in efforts to raise money and awareness, believing that change can happen with your help and generosity. Together, we can help support the organizations that are empowering women and children who have escaped or have been rescued from these unthinkable circumstances. Let's face it... you probably are not flying to India anytime soon, but that does not mean you can't make a difference. Any, and ALL donations made will go directly to the organizations in India who ARE creating change. Let's do this. Together, WE CAN make a difference. It take a village, remember? ;)
