Shopping is always relieving, well, to the pocket and to the mind too. We love to buy new stuff and often wonder what machines and labor must have gone into making them.
Well, Nicole Perez of Brighton, Michigan received a peek into the life of a labor who worked to make a pack of diapers that she bought. She was definitely in for a surprise when she found a hidden note inside her pack of diapers.
Read on to know what the note read, and the events that followed.
Opening up the new stuff you bought, at home, really uplifts our mood.
A note like this one, if pops out of a product you just bought, is sure to send chills down your spine.
Nicole had purchased a pack of this for her daughter at a mom-to-mom sale. When she opened it, the tiny cardboard fell out of it, and she was stupefied!
Perez told a local news station "I just felt like anything dropped on my stomach," when she found the note.
A name, a phone number, and a location. What would that mean?
But, those who have, revealed that they came from people who were forced into labor in factories and camps.
Handicraft Manufacturing Corporation, the company is based in New York, and their president is Irwin Mizrahi.
When she contacted the company, she was assured a new pack and apologized for the inconvenience. She then told a news station that her first step was finding out which factory the product came from.
"You're wondering if this is forced labor, if they're just working long hours, they're putting these underwears together and clearly someone is reaching out for help and so you think about your own kids and you hope that this isn't the case", she said in an interview.
Rebecca Tungol, President of the Philippine American Community Center of Michigan, said that the number was probably a pre-paid and hence untraceable.
How would you feel, if you received a similar note, and how far would you go to bring out the truth?
