I'm Heading to the Freedom Awards Nov. 7th!

I am excited! I just finished making my travel plans to attend the Freedom Awards in Los Angeles on November 7th! Modern slavery is so vicious and sickening that it's hard not to become depressed by it all. It's important to celebrate the victories and to pay tribute to the heroes of the modern anti-slavery movement.

The Freedom Awards are inspiring and bring hope to the fight for freedom. This is a wonderful event that will draw celebrity support, media attention and raise funds to combat slavery. All of these are needed to build the abolitionist movement and garner the support necessary to free more men, women and children trapped in slavery and to truly abolish slavery in our lifetime.

Ways you can support the Freedom Awards 2010

1. Buy tickets and attend the award ceremony. It will be an incredible, inspiring Red Carpet event and you will always remember. Plus, all proceeds go to the host organization Free the Slaves.

2. Blog about the event and help spread the word. This is a great opportunity to inspire others in the cause for freedom and reflect on the positive good deeds of these modern heroes.

3. Tweet, Facebook, Myspace, Email others about the event.
