Did you know The Salvation Army combats human trafficking across the globe? In fact, we’ve recently stepped up our efforts to fight this ever-present and nonetheless, growing phenomenon of modern-day slavery.
When we think of this industry, red light districts in “other” countries come to mind, but in reality, the U.S. trafficking industry is on the rise.
We were inspired by a great idea from Jenni Ragland, Associate Director of the Community Relations Department at The Salvation Army Alaska Divisional Headquarters. She created a 12 Months of Giving calendar which listed a new way to give back to Alaska communities each month of the year.
We liked her idea so much, we decided to create a 12 Months of Giving calendar that can be used by anyone.
Do you ever wonder what the younger “plugged in” generation will be like in the future? According to the New York Times, the average kid spends over 7.5 hours each day using technology: perusing internet sites, watching TV, playing video games and listening to music.
How do we encourage the younger generations to leave their computers and “Do the Most Good” in the real world, face-to-face with those in need?
Through the collective support of individuals, businesses and partners during our 120th annual Red Kettle Campaign, The Salvation Army now has the financial means to help millions of struggling Americans in the coming year.
