I am an abolitionist

In 1860, there were 4 million slaves in the United States.  But slavery did not end with Lincoln’s 1863 Emancipation Proclamation.

About 50,000 people are sold into slavery every year in the U.S., and there are probably about 100,000 slaves in the U.S. today. The statistics may not be entirely accurate, but they are close enough to indicate a serious problem.

Globally, there are about 27 million slaves (statistics from the State Department and U.N.).  Of those, about 10 million are sex slaves, and about 2 million of those sex slaves are children, some as young as 3 years of age. 

I’ve decided to be an abolitionist. 

As owner of, I announced on January 1 that I am donating a percentage of every purchase of services and product to charity.  One of those charities—Operation Underground Railroad—is devoted to abolishing child slavery.

A documentary film is about to be released about Operation Underground Rescue. View the trailer.

View a newscast about a sting operation that involved actress Laurie Holden.

Let's keep living and help others to keep living.  


  1. I'm so excited to read this post. I have also supported this charity and am glad they are doing something about the unthinkable. Thanks for all you do!

  2. And thank for your comment. Everyone should be free....
