Did you know slavery is illegal in every single country in the world, yet it still exists, all over the world? Specifically, slavery exists in 167 countries around the world – that’s 85% of the nations across the globe. There are an estimated 60,100 people trapped in slavery in the United States at this very moment. Even more heartbreaking, one in five victims of slavery is a child. I believe if more people knew the facts about slavery, that it generates over $150 billion dollars a year – then more people would be devastated and disgusted to the point of action. That’s why I’m glad to tell you today, there are only 6 Days until Shine A Light on Slavery Day! The EndIt movement’s annual national day of awareness focuses on prevention, rescue, and restoration.
“This February 27th, join us and other Freedom Fighters from around the world as we SHINE A LIGHT ON SLAVERY. Draw a RED X on your hand and post about it on social media using #ENDITMOVEMENT. Tell your world that slavery still exists and you won’t stand for it. This is OUR TIME. This is OUR MOMENT. We believe slavery could end in our lifetime… together we can END IT!” — From EndIt Movement Let us all take time to educate ourselves this week to discover what small actions we can take to make a big difference for so many of the world’s most vulnerable citizens in need of our help. There are so many ways to get involved with Endit movement alone – click here to learn about forming a team of freedom fighters. Let’s watch the ripple effects of what happens when we take action together!

Make A Difference Mondays is a weekly linkup designed to encourage and inspire us to live each day on purpose by making a meaningful difference in someone’s life in even the smallest of ways. Read on to learn more about our vision, mission, and how to link up!
Our mission is to provide a consistent gathering place for like-minded women to build online connections, share inspiration, and provide mutual encouragement and accountability as we seek to live intentionally and make a difference in the lives of those around us.
Every Monday we will invite bloggers to link up any blog post that encourages women to live life on purpose. This could include testimonies or goals from your own life, small acts of kindness or service, creative tips or ideas for showing consideration to others — the possibilities are endless. Our objective is to use our God-given time and resources to His glory!
Also, just a heads-up: we have created two fun new ways to keep us all connected! Now we have our own Facebook community group to stay in touch beyond the blog posts AND we also have a new #MADMlinkup group Pinterest board and we will be pinning our favorite posts from the linkup that inspire and encourage us to make a difference. We are so grateful for you and would love for all of you to join us for fellowship in the above linked community group and you can follow the Pinterest board right here to watch for your posts:
