I never knew about modern slavery until a friend told me about Freedom United. I was surprised to learn about all the different ways people are trafficked and that it happens in the United States. Now that I know, Freedom United keeps me informed with current news and updates on the work they do. I know that my donation is making a difference, because I can see exactly what they're doing around the world to fight slavery. I'm definitely a fan.

We've supported Freedom United financially for several years. The work is essential and is resulting in positive change around the world. The vision of using technology and social media in this work is inspired. Freedom United is a great support to the local organizations, providing a platform and format for people all over the world to band together to effect change. In just a few years, Freedom United has become a media and communications hub for many supporters and freedom fighters to work together on a global basis. It's very cool to go to the website and see people from all over the world taking actions and supporting the work. We've known the US founders for several years, and can vouch for their commitment to the cause and determination to carefully manage and use any financial gifts they receive. They are continuing to innovate ways to educate, communicate, and support the fight against human slavery of all forms. We will continue to financially support Freedom United and encourage others to do the same.

I recently connected with Freedom United after hearing about the organization through some peers. I'm so glad to have found it. I've been working with them for about 6 months now, and it is awesome to see the work that they're doing across the globe to eliminate modern slavery in all forms. It is awesome to see how their efforts are making an impact with every dollar received and with every signature on a petition. They're changing lives one action at a time!

My wife and I are Freedom Founders because we believe in what Freedom United is doing. At any one time, they are working with more than 50 organizations around the world to fight human trafficking and modern slavery. They make an impact with every single dollar we give. We know they are working hard to make a huge difference in the world and it feels great to be a part of that.

I have been a Board Member of Freedom United for a number of years now. I was first drawn to the organization because of the team's passion for addressing a complex and very challenging global issue. Over the years, I continue to be impressed by the professionalism and dedication of everyone involved, from volunteers to staff to the entire Freedom United community.

This organization is dedicated, hardworking and able to handle adversity and set-backs. As a Father of two young girls, I feel obligated to try to stop modern slavery. Freedom United is up to the challenge.

Finally a non profit that helps us all DO SOMETHING and not just donate to something! Too often I am pushed to give money that I assume is making good in the world but one I can't really see or comprehend. Freedom United is the first organization that leverages my ACTIONS and not just my money. I was able to make a difference right away and see that impact in the world. Because of Freedom United I've become an activist and not just a donor.

I've known the founder and CEO of this organization for about five years. He is a very talented entrepreneur who can do just about anything he puts his mind to. He could be building a highly successful business and creating a lot of value for himself, but he has chosen to dedicate himself to one of the greatest causes of the 21st century, the eradication of human slavery and trafficking. How can you not get fired up about that? Joe is tackling this problem with passion, skill, determination and integrity. Part of tackling the problem is simply raising awareness and Freedom United is doing a lot to raise awareness that there are more than 35 million people in slavery today. Does anyone think this is acceptable. Apparently some do or would like to simply overlook it. Change does not happen without sustained public pressure to expose the evils of modern trafficking and slavery. Go Freedom United! Now more than ever we need this.

I've had the honor of working with this organization since its inception. What's amazing about Freedom United is the truly collaborative nature of millions of people around the world raising up small non profits to do things unthinkable. It is the definition of the crowd in action.

Freedom United is the real deal. I've had a lot of personal experience working alongside their CEO, Joe Schmidt. Joe and his leader's have a true heart for human trafficking in all it's forms. Moreover, they're excellent, entrepreneurial, ethical, in everything they do. They've built an incredibly powerful organization that harnesses the voices of people all over the world to advocate human rights and abolish slavery.
