The NBA Season is here. Am I excited? Yes! The marquee matchup tonight between the Celtics and Heat is sure to be one of the most memorable season openers. I’ve posted the video below because of a phrase at the end of the game hype builder…..”talk will become _____________.”
For the past 25 days I’ve tried earnestly to let my actions do the talking. GOOD Everyday has inpsired me to push further to help bring awareness to causes that I’m passionate about and to do more in a significant way. I am still thinking through some of the ideas, but I know that mere thinking about ideas doesn’t get anything accomplished. You must do something. I tweet– Prayer. Hard work. Hustle. It’s true! Nothing in life (at least in mine) comes easy. Persevere. Turn your frustration into fruit.
Leave a comment. Finish the sentence. “Talk will become __________.”
Today’s $1 goes to SCTNOW. The acronym stands for Stop Child Trafficking Now. I follow them on Twitter, and so can you.
According to their site ….
Child Trafficking is the recruitment, smuggling, transporting, harboring, buying or selling of a child through force, threats, fraud, deception, or coercion for the purposes of exploitation, prostitution, pornography, migrant work, sweat shops, domestic servitude, forced labor, bondage, peonage or involuntary servitude.
Child trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world. UNICEF values the global market of child trafficking at over $12 billion a year with over 2.5 million child victims. Men, women and children are all victims but, the most vulnerable groups, those with limited rights or protections, have been the hardest hit… especially children.
