More men need to stand up and speak out against human-trafficking and slavery. It would be nice to see more professional athletes use their visibility to bring awareness to this worthy cause. With this in mind, I was happy to run across Not For Sale, an organization in San Francisco founded by University of San Francisco business professor and author, David Batstone.
Not For Sale is teaming up with professional athletes to shine a light on trafficking and slavery issues around the world. This year they have teamed up with a number of professional athletes to educate sports fans. For example, participating baseball players are pledging financial donations for every hit or strikeout. Others have committed to donating one game’s salary to Not For Sale’s projects in the U.S. and around the globe.
At Jo’el Worldwear we applaud their efforts to bring awareness to sports fans around the world. We need more strong men to join aforementioned sports hero’s and efforts to eliminate human-trafficking and slavery.
