"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

Email Your Friends

Want to really help the cause?  Would you consider sending this email to all your friends?

Dear All,

I wonder if you've seen Paul the Push-ups Guy in Martin Place recently?  I'd like to tell you about his "10,000 Push-ups to Crush Slavery" campaign, at http://www.crushslavery.com

When he learned that we have 27 million slaves in the world, and read some of the gut-wrenching stories about what many children and sex slaves have to endure, Paul got so upset that he put together this campaign, to do 100 push-ups every day for 100 days in Martin Place, in the heart of Sydney, just to raise awareness about the issue.

After many months researching the best methods to combat slavery, he believes the best way is how Wilberforce did it last time: to change public opinion, which in turn forces the hand of government.

So he doesn't want your money - just your influence.  Will you help us raise awareness by forwarding this email to all your friends?

What you can do:
1) Check out http://www.crushslavery.com/2011/06/press-release.html
2) Sign the petition to address the root cause of slavery, which is poverty http://j.mp/slaverypetition
3) Join the Facebook cause http://j.mp/slaverycause
4) Forward this email to all your friends.

Alone, he's just one crazy fella making a fool of himself in Martin Place.  But together, we can make a difference.

Thank you!
