Jewellery Sale raises money for A21
We all have these moments in our life when we meet special people.
This story about one of those special people.
I first met Rose-Marie at the Craft & Quilt Show in darling harbor many years ago now, and knew from the moment she approached that she was special…she oozes softness and sense of calm & generosity.
She is a delightful intelligent woman, I consider myself lucky indeed that she firstly was attracted to my stand Hot Dot Designs & secondly she chose me Carolyne Brennan as her jewellery tutor. It has been wonderful to be a part of her creative journey.
Rose-Marie has a few causes close to her heart and this is one of them, it is raising money and awareness for A21She did this on Saturday the 26th October by having a jewellery party where $1,127.40
was raised for A21
A21 is any organization with the sole objective of freeing and rehabilitating young women, some as young as 8 years old, who have been trafficked over the borders of many Eastern Block countries, into a life of sexual slavery.
This is something I am sure that we would much rather think does not exist !
but oh it does exist even in our Country Australia!
Please go to the A21 website for more information http://www.thea21campaign.org/
Yes you will be sicked, horrified and sadden by these statistics, but don’t bury your head in the sand we all need to know about these disgusting practices
Quote from the website
THE AVERAGE AGE OF TRAFFICKING
VICTIMS IS 12 YEARS OLD
Women and children are often kidnapped into the industry or
sold into it by family under desperate circumstances.
The average age of victims continues to grow younger as clients
seek “fresh” product.
