Are you an influential person?
Don’t think so? Think again. Every one of us, whether or not we realise it, has numerous spheres of influence that we can use to make a difference.
The Ripple Effect…
Every day, the conversations and knowledge we share are passed on to others. Every time someone talks about human trafficking, the message will resonate with someone else, who will then tell someone else, who will then tell someone else… until the message reaches someone who is in a position to spot an incident of human trafficking and respond to it.
Think about your daily routines and all the people with whom you come into contact. Everyone, no matter what their occupation or lifestyle, has the ability to generate change by engaging with people who may not necessarily be aware of the issues surrounding human trafficking, how it affects them, and what they can do to stop it.
Last week, G7th Ltd, The Capo Company, pledged to use their profile to raise awareness of human trafficking. They hope to make a difference by branding their capo packs with the STOP THE TRAFFIK logo and our strap line “People shouldn’t be bought and sold”. We are extremely grateful to G7th, whose capos are the Rolexs of the guitar world, for thinking about how they could use their brand for good. The chairman of G7th, Nick Campling, stated ‘”I believe that every one of us has the potential to do something truly world class… I hope our small contribution to the cause will help to bring awareness of the problem to musicians around the world.”
So how could you use your spheres of influence to make a positive contribution to the fight against human trafficking? Are you a student, parent, teacher, youth worker, carer, businessperson, taxi driver?… Today, try to tell at least three people, whether they are a friend, relative, colleague or client, about human trafficking and what they can do to stop it, or think about how you could use your brand to make a difference…
