Businesses aim to inspire social change

The Body Shop, a worldwide business selling beauty products, has launched a global campaign to stop the trafficking of young people and children for sex. It aims to raise awareness and funds for victims and has gained support in more than 40 countries.

"We believe in profit - we are a business - but we also believe business can make a difference and inspire social change," says Christopher Davis, the director of international campaigns at The Body Shop.

    Accept a victim of sex trafficking in your life

    I watched a video on human trafficking that made such a big impression on me that I want to share it with you. Human Trafficking is undeniable one of the big issues that is not getting enough attention.

    Thank u for this story, the world needs to kjnow about thisI am a nigerian, I spent the last twenty-six years of my life in the united states , been there since my teen years. You have to do to this story about Nigerian(s) too. To my surprise this kind of thing is still going on in this country(Nigeria). Little children, as young as ten years old are being use as slaves. Some by their parents, these kids work seven days a week sometimes twelve to fifteen hours a day for less than a dollar a day.. The parent is the one getting the monyt at the end of the mounth. Pls u have to include this in your story. I am doing something to help some of these kids but i cant do it alone i need your help. By doing this the powers that be will wake up and do something about it. PLs, PLs, contact me.

    Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give
    you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!
