But right here in America there have been men beaten and locked in a truck trailer and forced to pick tomotoes, women have been forced to braid hair in a salon without pay, and many are forced to sell their body night after night and threatened with violence if they leave--those are just some examples of slavery right here in the United states. The Global Slavery Index estimates that at least 57,000 slaves exist just in the US today. While impoverished areas and unstable or corrupt governments are breeding grounds of modern slavery, slavery also happens in developed and stable nations like Canada and the United Kingdom.. Slavery is a not just a third world problem.
Poppy & Pinecone has donated an item for this giveaway that I thought was fitting for the subject matter: An 11" x 14" World Love Print. When I look at this map it fills me with hope that as more people around the world know and care about the problem of slavery, that it can end. Because while the problem of slavery is huge, I believe that the heart of humankind is bigger.
To enter to win the World Love map print above, just answer a question on the Rafflecopter form below. Extra entries are available after you answer the first question.

FOR THOSE OUTSIDE THE U.S.
This giveaway is only open in the United States, Canada (except Quebec), The United Kingdom, and the following areas of Australia (QLD, NT, TAS, and VIC only). I would love to make my giveaways open in more places, but it's hard to meet all the legal requirements for various countries.
