"A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens was written to make people aware of child labor conditions in England in the 1800s. Dickens was appalled to learn that children were working in horrid working environments and were given low wages.
Isn’t that an eye-opener for this beloved Christmas story?
Little did Dickens know of the impact and success his story would bring in changing child labor laws in England.
Two hundred years later, the story still rings true in many places where child and adult labor conditions could be as horrid as in the 1800s.
During this Christmas season, there is no better gift to give Jesus than to help someone or to support movements that aim to create a better world for everyone.
