Give love added meaning this Valentine's Day and help stop modern day slavery. Instead of chocolate and flowers, give your loved ones a gift that truly expresses the meaning of love.
There are 27 million slaves in our world today. Slaves are forced to work without pay, under threat of violence, and are unable to walk away. It exists on six continents, including the Americas.
This Valentine’s Day, you can save a life by giving a gift that will always be remembered. Give modern-day slaves their freedom.
In 2008, Americans spent close to $17 billion on Valentine’s Day.* That is enough to free and rehabilitate all 27 million slaves.
