Pensions actuary Paul Grant and work colleagues are out to make a difference to over 30 million people living as slaves in the world today, many of them children.
During the week ending 9 August, Paul and his team will give their own time in service to people in their lives. "The idea is to make someone in your life happy by choosing to be completely of service. In exchange, the beneficiary will donate in support of Anti-Slavery International," says Paul.
He added: "You could serve someone at work or at home. Be the tea boy or girl, get a colleague their lunch for a week, do all the odd jobs that have been there for ages, or make your partner breakfast in bed. People with particular skills can donate too - teach a yoga class, give someone a massage or a makeover. Just make someone happy and make a difference in the process." If you want to get involved, have the people you are serving make a contribution here.
Anti-Slavery International (www.antislavery.org/english/) was founded in 1839 to end slavery in the British Empire. 176 years later, and it is still the only UK charity doing so. With partners around the globe, it lobbies governments and international collectives, rehabilitates victims, raises awareness and challenges the social, economic, political and commercial structures that allow slavery to propagate.
