"A human trafficker can earn 20 times what he or she paid for a girl. Provided the girl was not physically brutalized to the point of ruining her beauty, the pimp could sell her again for a greater price because he had trained her and broken her spirit, which saves future buyers the hassle. A 2003 study in the Netherlands found that, on average, a single sex slave earned her pimp at least $250,000 a year." - RandomHistory

Human Billboard

A few weeks back I looked at my T-shirts and realised they're all bragging about somewhere I've been or something I've done. The Blogger T-shirt, the Visual Studio .NET shirt, Flying over Chiang Mai, Bangkok, Pamplona, The Tube, brag, brag, brag. I'm just over it.

So instead of advertising my own coolness, I've decided to become a human billboard for the cause I'm most passionate about: Human Trafficking. Two hundred bucks later, I have replaced my wardrobe with a range of gear I made at CafePress, Vistaprint & Zazzle, plus a hoodie and drink bottle from Real Men Don't Buy Girls. From now on, I am a human billboard for liberty.

Will you join me?

What will you do to stop Human Trafficking & Slavery?
