On Saturday 3rd November, people from all around the world will be coming together to take part in “Freedom to Walk”. Their aim is to walk more than 370 kilometers over 15 days, from Bangkok to Myanmar, to benefit and raise awareness about global anti-human trafficking efforts. In the process they are trying to raise at least USD $100,000 for five organizations who are working to combat human trafficking across different industries and continents.
You can help in two ways. You can donate now by visiting their website at www.freedomtowalk.org. You can also join them on the first day of their walk. To register, go to their website and click on “Get Involved” for more information.
