Regular readers will know I have written about human trafficking and the amazing A21 campaign before. Well, if any of that ever struck a chord with you, then your help is needed!
Matt & Beth Redman, and LZ7 have joined up to release a new single '27 million' in support of A21 and it is released on Sunday, so go buy it!! and this is why:
: The ‘Twenty Seven Million’ song looks to raise awareness for the anti-human trafficking movement. Together we could make some big noise about this important issue, and be a voice for the voiceless.
Here are some of the facts:
: Human trafficking is an organised criminal activity that affects every nation.
: There are an estimated 27 million people on the earth today trapped in some form of modern day slavery.
: There are an estimated 1.39 million victims of commercial sexual servitude worldwide.
: Tragically, only 1-2% of victims are rescued.
: Remember every number is not just a statistic, it represents the life of a victim.

On Saturday 25th Feb (thats this saturday) there will be a live webcast from 6.30 - 7.45pm, with J John, Matt & Beth Redman and LZ7. It will include chat and the live launch of the single and premiere of the video. Link should be on the ecard above or via Matts website: www.mattredman.com
