My hub is probably nothing you haven't heard of, but these numbers fell into my hands today. Help me get this message out. I hope you will see this and read. I have waited and no one is up who knows me now.
I must sleep. I'll check back in tomorrow.

Since you posted this in the makeover forum-- I would suggest that you cut to the chase in this one and get to the point a bit sooner. I got a little involved in your errands and the mail-mix-up and the yard sale before I realized what it was really about...
On second thought, once you gather more information and get your permissions-- you might want to write a new hub that is focused on the situation you want to expose. If you make it about the stories of the victims, I think it will reach more readers.
Rochelle, I have worked on a second hub, what you can do and am linking it to the first I hope you get this message. Thank you.
Yes Thank you, all of you. I am in tears as I just woke up and was looking in the unanawered tab for this. I will write another hub, in depth, after I get permission.
The reason I wrote about my day is because I wanted everyone to feel how it hit me. Imagine going about your day to day life and bam. The next will be more and now I lnow how to group them.
There was a movie on Lifetime I believe about this and the notforsale.org website may have been the one they were being sponsored by. I find it disturbing that FL is #2 in trafficking.
Thank you Lynnechandler, I was sick all day over it. I didn't actually go to sleep until after 6:00 am.
A while back now I wrote a hub on the same topic and when Dale was asking for hubs to promote in his hub I chose my hub on this topic and found one from another author on the same topic for him to promote, you should look for the forum thread and add you link to it as well. Maybe Dale will see this thread and make the connection himself even
Together we can increase awareness more so then going it alone.
I have found a little known Hubber with personal experienc, she was brought to this country under false pretenses and gives a first hand account. I have "fanned" her.
Here is the link to Dale's forum thread. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/31383
He won't mind at all and I reiterated the need to get your hub out there in his forum.
You are the sweetest. I must see if I am following you as it is hard to keep up. I went and found something he will be interested in by you and kirstenblog as well
I loved your april writer's ideas and we do need ideas!
I saw that and really appreciate it. I have to go fan you as well so I can keep up with this.
I have to go get food for my snake and will be back later. I know the thread will probably die, but all of you gave me such great help. Lynne I will be back and see you round the Forum. God Bless You. (in case you sneezed) Love ya thanks so much for all of your help.
Angels among us and all that soppy stuff you know.
This hub is more focused on the topic than the first one-- but I still think you need a more direct explanation of what the problem is. If I came to this piece and had no idea what "human trafficking" is, I would have no inclination to try to do anything about it or even spread the word.
You talk about the movie (I haven't seen it) where a man loses his daughter. Does it tell or show what happens to her? Do we get a feeling of why this should matter to us and how widespread this activity might be?
People are not very likely to be persuaded to go door to door and talk to people about it-- especially if they are not really sure why it is important. Maybe you can say something about what the organizations you mention actually do. Also give some figures about where and how the abductions happen. People are more likely to care if they think it could affect them or their community.
If you ask people to write letters they need to be able to reference some facts.
I wish I could be more helpful.
One of your video links is disabled-- "Akela and the Bee" and there is no fix for this because its use was probably disallowed by the owner. You should delete it or find another.
I'm not an editor or any kind of authority on how to write hubs-- the above suggestions are JUST suggestions with a bit of opinion thrown in. Good luck!
OK, I know you are busy--
when I go to forums-- I look at "all" and then check "Your" to see if people are posting where I have been. I don't know how you find time-- can't imagine being back in school. I's been a real long time for me.
I don't know if you saw up the page. I found a hub by Bukolove. I know we are not supposed to post hubs, and am still learning rules. She was brought her under false pretenses of marriage.
I have written her asking to ad her link to my hubs as well. I do not know if she's still around.
My next two will be on what you can do to be safer., and of course the groups that have joined together when I hear back.
On a side note I have to check as there is a rumor that the current target is displaced Haitian orphans.
Okay Rochelle, the next one is up. Haiti is truly a target.

Yesterday I updated it by adding a new poll. It has two ad capsules and nothing spammy about it. What gives?
