Dressember

By: Delilah Martin

As many of you know, Hannah Silk is bringing Dressember to our school. With a goal of raising $3,500, Hannah encourages all to sign up and make a small donation of $10. The team already raised $1,167 these past few weeks. You can find the information on the mhsdressember Instagramdress page. With a cause to help end human trafficking, all of MHS is encouraged to come together as a community. This starts December 1st-31st.

 

Human trafficking is modern-day slavery and involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked in countries around the world, including the United States. Human trafficking is a hidden crime as victims rarely come forward to seek help because of language barriers, fear of the traffickers, and fear of law enforcement

 

This is an incredible opportunity to help others this holiday season. While we are giving and receiving gifts to our family during Christmas, it is important to help others who are less fortunate and can’t be with their family. The issue of human trafficking is tragic and as Christians we are called to do anything we can to help.
