Hello everybody. Have you ever heard of child labour? Well  I certainly have and in my opinion, I think this should stop now. Child labour is when young kids get kidnapped,tortured and get forced to work for a long amount of time, approximately 12 hours  every single day without getting paid! They also sometimes work in dangerous areas using dangerous tools. They are also forced to get out of school and work for the people that have kidnapped them. Usually the kids that get kidnapped are between ages 5-14. Child labour began in the early 1800’s, that is a LONG time ago. There are about 67 million kids that are missing out on there right to go to school. Right now, 22,000 children are still dying each day from preventable causes. There are also more than 150 million young kids that are forced to work. So now that you know a little bit more about child labour, don't you think that this should stop now? Well, if you want it to stop you can donate money to help stop this issue. In over 190 countries, the Canadian organization, U.N.I.C.E.F, are fighting daily to stop this. So lets donate a few dollars to those children that are in need.
