Each year, there is an event called Blog Action Day. Bloggers are encouraged to take a pause from their regular content to write about a topic that is important to humanity. This year, the topic is one of the most important of all; human rights.
When we learned the topic of discussion for the 2013 Blog Action Day is human rights, we were honestly a bit stumped. Though our own mission statement includes our desire “to create tools that allow passionate small businesses to build better relationships with their community,” we had never thought of it in terms of human rights. When you are going about your own daily life, running your business, paying your employees, it is easy to assume that basic human rights of all those around you are being met. But this isn’t true throughout the world (or even always right at home).
