Not For Sale Thailand | We Did It!

Thank you to everyone who partnered with us to make the Global Forum 2010a landmark event!! The conference was an incredible think tank to advance and enable the work of the modern Abolitionist movement. From aftercare to social media, from law enforcement to faith communities, the conversations, connections, and results were astounding. And the HIGHLIGHT of the 2010 Global Forum…. Kru Nam, the Abolitionist who inspired the Not For Sale Campaign, was surprised by a check for $155,000 to build the desperately needed dormitories for kids rescued out of slavery and situations of extreme vulnerability in Thailand. To add to the excitement…. contributions from the Abolition Concert the night before the Global Forum and a last minute gift of $23,000 from a family foundation put the total for Kru Nam’s kids at an astounding $180,000 — the EXACT amount needed to build the dormitories. THANK YOU for joining and supporting the Not For Sale Campaign in its mission to enable Abolitionists like Kru Nam and power the modern-day Abolitionist movement.
