20th Day of Lent

Tens of thousands of poverty stricken parents in Africa will be tricked into selling their children for a little as $1.50. They do so believing that the “recruiter” can offer their children a life of hope and fulfilled dreams.

Instead the children are often forced to work with dangerous pesticides and machetes, beaten into submission, poorly fed, and imprisoned when not working.

“Chocolate’s hidden ingredient –  child slavery.”

Light a candle on your purple place as a prayer for the children who may have produced the chocolate in your Easter egg.
