End It Movement happening in the Panhandle

Red X on the hand today means you are bringing awareness about slavery.

Today, February 27th has been declared around the nation to be a day to Shine A Light On Slavery, also known as the End It Movement.

People across the country and right here in Amarillo are participating today by drawing a red X on their hand then posting those pictures on Facebook and Instagram.

The purpose is to tell the world that slavery still exists. It's a way to make people aware and help carry the message so even more people know.

27 million men, women and children are trapped in slavery around the world today including right here in the United States.

You can also go to the website and donate to help end slavery. Be sure to use the hashtag #enditmovement on your social media pages.

Already this morning nearly $200,000 dollars has been raised.
