Saturday 2/7/15 from 2-5 pm – Book Signing and Fundraiser, Apricot Lane, Promenade Shops, Center Valley, PA
There’s no pretty way to say “sex trafficking,” but Apricot Lane Center Valley has pretty ways to raise money to combat this horribly reality: a percentage of sales today will benefit VAST (The Valley Against Sex Trafficking). I will also donate a portion of each book sale to VAST. I volunteer with VAST and they do amazing work.
The 3Strands bracelets sold by Apricot Lane are made by women who are human trafficking survivors, so pick one up today. I wear one every day to remind me of what I’m writing about.
Why am I so interested in human trafficking? Human trafficking is a plot point that weaves its way through the entire Marina Konyeshna Thrillogy. Over 100,000 children are forced into the sex trade annually. Over 24 million people around the world are forced into sex or labor slavery. It happens here in the United States, too. We have to make a stand. Join us.
