#9,000 people give $9.00 on 09~09~09

This post is from Diana Scimone. She is "a journalist who has reported extensively on issues of human rights and religious rights around the world." ~ from her blog

She is doing this really really cool thing on 09~09~09. She is gathering #9,000 people who will each give $9.00 to stop child trafficking. Here is what she is doing in her words:

What's the best way to stop child trafficking?

Make sure kids don't get trafficked in the first place.

What if we could warn children and their parents ahead of time? What if we could teach them about the lies traffickers use--and how to stand up against them?

The rate of trafficking would drop and millions of kids would never be trafficked.

That's the goal of The Born2Fly Project--educating kids and their parents about the dangers of trafficking through a strategic global campaign of books and printed materials.

On 9/9/09 we'll host a 1-day fundraiser to raise money for B2F: 9,000 people each giving $9 on 9/9/09 to stop child trafficking.

Will you join her to help "Kim? She is 8 years old. Tonight she'll be bought for sex ~ perhaps 20 times before the sun comes up."
