Be A Campaign Hero - I Am!

Last April 29, The Body Shop, Philippines posted this on their page:

I have signed this petition months ago, and I totally agree and support with The Body Shop's advocacy against sex trafficking of children and young people. On one trip to the store, I brought home with me 10 petition forms for my family to sign. I wanted to raise awareness, and I know that my family would be supportive of me. With that, I got my Mom, sisters, housekeeper, boyfriend, and even doctor to sign the petition forms. 10 might not be a large number, but it is also significant because they could further spread the news about The Body Shop's campaign.

Here are some pictures of the petition form:

Your signature REALLY can make a difference.
You may sign the petition forms in store or online at

Working alongside ECPAT, this petition calls upon our government to give children greater protection against trafficking. The goal of this petition is to put more funds to the anti-trafficking campaign to improve law enforcement and to provide services to victims.

This petition will be presented to the government to represent a show of hands by everyone who signed this petition and supported this cause.

Yesterday, I submitted the signed petition forms and got a Badge of Honor! :)

This is truly something to be proud of!

You can help spread awareness, too! From May 1-31 2011, bring at least 10 signed petition forms to the following stores and get our Be A Campaign Hero badge: SM Mall of Asia, Robinsons Ermita, Glorietta 3, Rockwell, SM Megamall, Robinsons Galleria, Greenhills, Eastwood 2, Alabang Town Center, SM City.

I want to share a nice song with you. The Click Five partnered with MTV EXIT to produce a music video to their track "Don't Let Me Go." With a message of hanging on this video aims to raise awareness about human trafficking and the role we can all play in breaking the chain.

Since this is a global campaign, The Body Shop's objective is to join hands with thousands of signatories around the world by taking our petitions to the United Nations. I hope more people sign this petition and support this cause. Let's create a movement and help stop sex trafficking not only in the Philippines, but also the world.



  1. The song is so inspiring ! (:
    It's sad to see that some of the clips came from the Philippines. :/

  2. Hi Ann! Thanks for recommending this song! :)
