Beautiful Souls Doing Beautiful Things – Be Hers / A21 Campaign
Every day there are so many beautiful souls around our world who are doing beautiful things to make a difference. They are the rays of sunshine, lighting the way and being the change. I came across Be Hers and the A21 Campaign a few years ago and was instantly inspired and grateful by all they do.
Human trafficking is one of biggest hidden dirty secrets of the modern world. Many people, when they think of slavery, think of Black Slavery…. A very dark time in our history. Now a-days, slavery is much more hidden, mainly through human trafficking, and it does not just effect one race of people, but instead effects people from all around our world, regardless of age, sex, race, colour, country, etc. Human trafficking is used to steal men, women and children and force them into being exploited for manual and sexual labour against their will. Over 27 million people are currently being held in captivity, with someone being taken every 30 seconds.
When I think about how we have let our world come to be in this situation, I weep. Yet when I hear of people like Be Hers and the A21 campaign, I am so inspired to stand with them and make a change to demolish human trafficking once and for all.
Be Hers was created in Australia, by a group of girlfriends, who were devastated to hear of the size and scope of modern day slavery. Located down in Hobart, Tasmania, Be Hers is…
“A movement of women placing value, inspiring purpose and standing together against human trafficking.”
Be Hers runs events and has an online store from which 100% of the profits go directly towards the fight to abolish the world’s fastest growing criminal industry. Their events, called ‘Be Hers Woman’ are run across Australia, and are about coming together to help each other to have positive impact in all areas of our lives; such as home lives, workplaces, community and to the world beyond.

The A21 Campaign
The A21 Campaign is a non-profit organisation that fuels the new era of Abolitionists, striving every day to end human slavery all around the world. They are based out of 11 offices around the globe, and each of their offices are different in their operations: from reducing vulnerability in refugee camps to protecting and caring for survivors.
Freedom. That’s our goal for every human being on the planet.
“We believe in a world without slavery. For 9 years now, we’ve rolled up our sleeves and set our feet to action. Why? Because in a single moment a number can turn into a name, a tragedy into a victory, and a belief into an action.”
Abolish slavery everywhere, forever.
“When a lot of people do a little, it adds up and makes a difference.”
– Christine Caine, A21 Founder
