Every Child Deserves a Childhood | End Child Trafficking with UNICEF

Most people would help every child in the world, if they could.  No matter what faith, creed, color or status, most people have a soft spot in their heart for children.   But, there are people in the world who exploit children for their own profit.  UNICEF estimates that child trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry, annually, with over 5.5 million children affected.  Thousands of those children live in the United States. 
UNICEF would like to raise awareness and get that number to ZERO. 
Things to do to help End Child Trafficking:
*Check out this video, which features Angie Harmon, UNICEF's new End Child Trafficking Ambassador:

*Download the End Trafficking ToolKit, which has 22 suggestions for how you can help  raise awareness and end child trafficking.  One of the tips is to switch to Fair Trade Brands, which are produced without slave or child labor.

 *Post the Human Trafficking Hotline number: 1-888-373-7888.  Callers can report potential cases, get help or request training and information.

*Go to UNICEF's End Trafficking Page to find out more information.

*Follow @EndTraffick on Twitter

Who IS The Quirky Homemaker from HBHL?

I'm that girl who went to college on scholarship, lost that scholarship after the first year, changed majors 5 times, started working full time to pay for college, ended up with a degree in fashion. . . that girl who met a boy on a cruise who she eventually fell in love with and moved 1100 miles away from home and family to be with. . . that girl who believes in Jesus, but married a man who isn't sure what to believe. . .then had kids with him. . .who are a perfect combination of us both. . . Lord, help us all. . . the girl who is still trying to figure life out. . . whose life, like this blog is constantly evolving. . . that girl who cooks for relaxation, is never organized, always had her nose in a book while growing up. . . who is afraid of heights, but married a BASE jumper. . .that girl who grew out her gray hair and is trying to be the fittest of her life in her 40's. . . that girl who would rather do crafts and sew, than fold the laundry or clean the mud off the floor. . . yeah, I'm that girl

If you try anything from my site, you do so at your own risk. I'm an experimenter, always trying to make my own way. That's my thing. I'm happy if you find inspiration here.
