real love on valentine’s day

3 Feb

Can you believe Valentine’s Day is in 12 days? That means it’s only another 14 days until my birthday! WoootWoooot! Chris and I don’t usually celebrate Valentine’s Day. This is a guy who covers me up with the blankets before he gets in bed ever single night, he will rub my back when it hurts, put lotion on my feet, he’ll go out and buy me diet Coke in a blizzard if I asked him to, but that man is a TOTAL doofus about any kind of gift-giving holiday. Don’t get me wrong, I’d take what I have any day over someone who is a jerk the other 360 days of the year that aren’t some kind of holiday. But I haven’t gotten a gift (unless I told him exactly what to buy) for Christmas, my birthday, our anniversary, Valentine’s Day, you name it in seven years. He just kind of…forgets. Valentine’s Day doesn’t really count as a holiday, a lot of people say it’s a stupid holiday, but I think any day that you show someone that you love them isn’t a stupid day. That’s what I’m asking for this year.

Love146 is an organization that seeks to end child slavery and sex trafficking. An estimated 27 MILLION people worldwide are enslaved. Two CHILDREN are sold every minute. Over 1.2 MILLION children are trafficked annually. Over 100,000 CHILDREN in the UNITED STATES are forcefully engaged in pornography or prostitution. Let that sink in. Children. Million. United States. Children.  

Chris and I will be skipping the traditional cheesy-drug-store-end-up-in-a-shoe-box-at-the-bottom-of-your-closet-cards and are sending Love146 e-cards instead. With the e-card, we’ll be making a donation to Love146 in the hopes that we can help even one child know love and comfort this Valentine’s Day.

You can find all kind of cards (including Valentine’s Day cards) here. Check out the rest of their website, it’s full of information about who they are, what they do and why they do it. 

Show someone you love them by showing love to a child who desperately needs it.

I’m not affiliated in anyway with Love146. I haven’t been paid, perked or compensated in any way for this post. It’s just something Chris and really care about and want to share with you.
