Boxing Day Sales vs Not for Sale

So today is the day of super sales, where once again we focus on what we want and what we are able to get for our money. Looking back on our actions and purchases today, I ask everyone to do a couple of things: 1.) remember all those who are unable to even afford essentials such as food, housing, clean water and basic medical care, and think about whether you could give some of the money you planned to spend the the sales today and heading into January. And 2.) consider all the people who are enslaved to produce many of the items that are being sold so cheaply at this time of year.

Look back over my previous posts about slavery. Also, have a look at Not For Sale. Not For Sale fights human trafficking and modern-day slavery around the world. Through international work on the ground and in mainstream supply chains, they proactively target the root causes of slavery while engaging and equipping the movement for freedom.
