Good News Friday
I’ve been really excited about this Good News Friday because I missed a week for the holiday and thus had a ton to share. At the same time, I’m running on no sleep. So in fear this post will spiral into a… rerhaldskf… mush of… aweh sadkf fb=… bad spelling and… aldf ehjkef… grammar mistakes… I’ll make it brief:
Creativity Blossoms in the Great Migration – A stunning photo essay about a school for children of migrant workers in China and the art that transformed their community.
67 Burmese Women Rescued in Thailand – large-scale rescue operations happen all the time thanks to amazing anti-trafficking groups around the world. This one came to me through the Somaly Mam Foundation. Their mission: “To give victims and survivors a voice in their lives, liberate victims, end slavery, and empower survivors as they create and sustain lives of dignity.”
Nestlé Makes the First Move – By being the first major food company to investigate child slavery in their cocoa supply chain, Nestlé got a head start on responding to an increasingly savvy consumer market.
