Did you know that over 1.2 million children and young adults are trafficked every year? It's the third biggest criminal industry in the world after illegal drug and arms trade, with profits from sex trafficking topping US$27 billion annually. That's $30 BILLION. The Body Shop, for the second year running, is hoping to raise awareness of the scale and prevalence of this horrifying trade through its Stop Sex Trafficking of Children and Young People campaign. It is also aiming to raise funds for those in need of immediate help through the sale of the non-greasy, citrusy Soft Hands, Kind Heart Hand Cream ($13.95). ALL profits will go to Child Wise and the cause.
The Stop Sex Trafficking of Children and Young People campaign will commence on July 26 and run for three weeks.
