Hearts Should Be Free - Scribbleprints Stationery (2/29)

I've been holding giveaways to raise awareness of modern slavery.   This giveaway is for 20 pages of the stationery shown above.

 When I first learned about slavery, I didn't realize that it happened here.  Right here in America there have been men beaten and locked in a truck trailer and forced to pick tomotoes, women forced to braid hair in a salon and not allowed to leave, others forced into prostitution against their will.  And that's just the short list.  Modern slavery, known as human trafficking, happens in places like Canada and the United Kindom, not just third world countries.

One thing we can do is be aware...know the signs.   Here are just a few signs that someone might be a victim of human trafficking.
  • Shows signs of abuse (bruises, injuries, untreated medical problems)
  • Is fearful, anxious, depressed, submissive, tense, or nervous/paranoid
  • Is not in control of his/her own identification documents 
  • Does not control of his/her own income--has no financial records or bank account.
  • Lives in the same place he/she works
  • Workplace or living place has heavy security (bars on windows, barbed wire, isolated location, etc)
  • Is not free to leave or come and go as he/she wishes

I am going to be selling some of the stationery above and donate the proceeds to an organization which fights modern slavery or helps human trafficking victims.  I havn't yet decided on the organization or the price, and need to check on how much shipping would be.  If you would be interested in being notified when I get this posted up for sale, please e-mail me at ecarian at yahoo com or leave a comment with you e-mail below.
