It has been six or seven months now since the 2010 World Cup, and it feels like it has been years already. It was such a hectic time of life but I am continually amazed by how the stories from that time are still being used to inspire.

If you are inspired by these stories, I would totally encourage you to do a Not For Sale Investigative Training Academy in San Francisco!

If this is what one or two of us can accomplish in less then a year, imagine what a whole army of passionate 20-somethings can do when equipped to really bring an end to modern day slavery!

Lets see more stories of triumph for 2011!
