Craig Morgan Instagram
Craig Morgan has experienced great success ever since he kicked off his country music career in 2000. He’s had 17 singles make their way onto the Billboard charts, including “What I Love About Sunday,” “International Harvester,” and “Redneck Yacht Club.”
Morgan is also known for his charitable efforts, especially dealing with the military, since he was active duty in the Army for nine and a half years and remained in the reserves for six and a half more. Due to his tireless support for our nation’s troops, Morgan was awarded the USO Merit Award in 2006.
More recently, Morgan used his popularity and influence to help another cause. Thursday (Feb. 25) was the national #enditmovement day, which is about bringing awareness to ending human trafficking. Morgan took to his Instagram to share a photo of support, but he also revealed he helped rescue four young girls from their pimps that day.
“We just collaborated with @theexoodusroad and the Thai police to rescue 4 young girls and arrest their 2 pimps. To God be the glory!!” Morgan wrote.
According to the organization’s Instagram, The Exodus Road “helps find and free modern slaves and human trafficking victims with strategic action and ordinary people.” A list of statistics on the organization’s website shows it has already helped rescue 688 people from human trafficking situations, and has supported 196 arrests.
As part of the #enditmovement, people took to Instagram to write messages of support along with photos of large “X’s” marked on their hands. Other celebrities who stepped forward to show their support for the movement included Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson, who also wore a hat with a red “X” marked on it.
“Let’s end slavery for good // Our generation could end it. For real. Awareness is the first step!” John Luke wrote.
Two other Robertson family members who shared their support on Instagram were Sadie and John Luke’s mother, Korie, and their little sister, Bella.

We applaud Morgan for helping to rescue those four young girls, and for helping raise awareness about human trafficking. Hopefully Morgan can continue to use his star power to continue to help this cause, among others.
