10 Oct Essex urged to stand in solidarity with modern slavery victims
This October The Salvation Army is urging people to stand in solidarity with the millions of victims of modern slavery across the globe by wearing a temporary tattoo and joining the campaign online using #WeAreNotForSale.
In the lead-up to Anti-Slavery Day on Thursday 18 October, special edition temporary tattoos will be available from Salvation Army’s shops in Basildon, Canvey Island, Colchester and Maldon for a £1 donation. Proceeds of each donation will go to the charity’s Victim Care Fund, supporting its work with survivors of modern slavery.
The Salvation Army has held the government contract to provide specialist support to adult victims of modern slavery in England and Wales for more than seven years, supporting more than 7,000 victims in that time.
Supporters are being encouraged to help The Salvation Army spread the message online by sharing photos of them wearing their temporary tattoos on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, using the hashtag #WeAreNotForSale. A limited edition Facebook ‘frame’ will be available from facebook.com/salvationarmyuk and The Salvation Army will be making a jpeg of the design online at salvationarmy.org.uk.
