Slavery still exists, and this extraordinary piece in The Atlantic from 2012 documents it with powerful and poignant photographs.
Yes, slavery still exists, and we can do something about it. We can actually help free people, and then help support them as they rebuild their lives in freedom and safety. Why not join me and other professional athletes in Team Not For Sale? Make an accomplishment-based pledge. Do you and your friends play football on Sunday afternoons? Then you can pledge $1 to Not For Sale for every tackle you make this season. That money will go to help empower survivors of human trafficking. You can get everyone on your team to make a similar pledge. That way you can raise a lot, by everyone giving a little bit. That’s teamwork!
You will find the most profound fulfillment if you do.
The National League Championship Series starts Saturday, and I’m focused! See you Monday.
