I love this month's cause! As an avid viewer of Law & Order SVU, I feel strongly about putting an end to the sexual exploitation of children, and am a huge supporter of what ECPAT is doing.
ECPAT is an expanding network of local civil society organisations and coalitions with one common goal – to end the sexual exploitation of children around the world. ECPAT conducts cutting-edge research to build the collective understanding of what it will take to end the sexual exploitation of children. Together with our members and partners, we coordinate evidence-based advocacy at all levels to strengthen national justice and protection systems and increase investment in the fight against sexual exploitation of children. At the heart of all our work are the voices of children, reflected across our research agenda, programmes and campaigns.
The Backstory: Michelle's Miracle Miles
Last October I decided to challenge myself to run a half marathon a month for the next 12 months. After completing the first 2, I wasn't feeling as motivated to reach my goal. In an effort to turn this around, I decided to partner with my employer, Conductor, Inc., in sponsoring a different charitable organization that I will run on behalf of each month. All donations will go directly to the charity, and each month I will post information about that month's cause! Check out the full page here!!
