This month, Not For Sale launches our #InnovateForGood campaign. We’ll be celebrating outside-the-box thinkers who are creating solutions for injustice through entrepreneurship, and stories of global impact from innovators in the Not For Sale ecosystem and beyond!

“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.” Leonardo da Vinci.

A few months ago, Mariana Petersel, director of Not For Sale Romania, rescued 3 young children sold into slavery by their desperately poor parents. Mariana has been fighting trafficking in Europe for the past 3 decades. Today and every day, we celebrate Mariana and all of the hard work she does to keep the world Not For Sale.

NFS Romania strives to care for the 10,000 child refugees in Europe, protecting and providing for them a place of peace. Romania Not For Sale rehabilitates and repatriates survivors trafficked from dozens of countries. We provide short and long-term housing, extensive medical care and counseling.
