"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

I never thought I'd get here, but tomorrow I'll have reached three quarters of my goal. Thanks to everyone who's stopped by to sign the petition and encourage me along the way. The number of people genuinely concerned about the issue of slavery has really encouraged me. Every lunchtime I drag myself down to embarrass myself yet again in Martin Place, but every time someone stops by for a chat and to sign the petition it really lifts my spirits. I always walk back to the office feeling much happier than when I left. So to everyone that's showed an interest, THANK YOU. :)

What will you do to stop Human Trafficking & Slavery?
