We're always grateful when we get to partner with CNN FREEDOM PROJECT, and this time is no different. Celebrating freedom is essential when we realize that so many around the world experience oppression and slavery. We want to use our voice to change that.
With 20.9 million victims and a world population of 7 billion, that's 1 in every 335 people on the planet living in slavery.
That's why we do the work we do, and that's why we're calling on you to join. Spreading awareness is one simple act we can do to make a difference and fight for freedom.
When we choose to be grateful for our freedoms, that can, in turn, inspire us to work towards freedom for others.
My Freedom Day is on March 14, 2017, and on that day, CNN Freedom Project will follow the sun across the globe, sharing about what freedom means to people of all nations. By sharing on social media with the hashtag #MyFreedomDay, you'll have a chance to be highlighting in the CNN Freedom Project's video!
We'd love for you to take a simple video of photo of yourself with this sign and share:
1) What "freedom" means to you
2) What you plan to do on March 14th for My Freedom Day.
Be sure to tag #MyFreedomDay and #FreeTheGirls .
One easy way to partner with Free The Girls on that day is to take part in our first ever National Bra Drive! We have over 140 official drop-off locations around North America that are participating! Kicking off March 14th and running through March 31st, we'd love for you to clean out your drawers and drop off your gently-used bras at one of our amazing Drop-off partners. When you write down your name and email address on the sign-up sheet, you'll be automatically put into a drawing for a nice FTG special surprise! Make sure you snap a photo at the Drop-off to tag on social media. And if you ask the representative at the Drop-off, they'll be able to show you photos of the tangible difference you're making in the lives of women around the world!
