TOGETHER, WE’RE WORKING TO END MODERN SLAVERY: HERE’S WHAT YOU MADE POSSIBLE IN 2023.
Not For Sale (NFS) is a global, humanitarian non-profit who is changing the world by working to end human trafficking and modern slavery.
In 2007, our company REBBL was created as a way to support Not For Sale’s efforts by selling organic drinks that source ingredients from global communities to provide economic stability and utilizing a portion of every single bottle of Rebbl sold to support Not For Sale and their mission.
To date, REBBL has donated over $2 million to support Not For Sale’s efforts to end human trafficking.
A LOOK AT WHAT YOU MADE POSSIBLE IN 2023
This year, we’ve collectively helped Not For Sale positively impact the lives of 95,820 children and adults with direct services like education, job training, housing, access to capital, clean water, nutrition, and more to help empower them for a better future.
Let’s take a closer look:
EMPOWERING THE PEOPLE FOR 16 YEARS
Since 2007, Not For Sale has empowered over 447,828 at-risk individuals (that’s almost half a million!) towards a better future. and looking at this past year with a total impact count of almost 96,000 individuals, this large growth is evidence that the infrastructure, programs, and tools laid in previous years are working to help scale and streamline the impact they are making year after year.
EMPOWERING SURVIVORS DIRECTLY
In 2023, 45 youths received educational scholarships, and a safe house for sex trafficking survivors was created. Additionally, native communities received training in Brazil nut harvesting, aquaculture pond setup, and cocoa agroforestry. In total, 6,906 survivors and exploited people were provided extensive direct services to help them rewrite their own story and work towards a thriving future.
EMPOWERING THE PLANET
Specifically in the Amazon, NFS has aided 42 young women in a shelter who were victims of sex trafficking in 2023. The agroforestry and sustainable supply chain programming provided to these women contributed to the protection of 753 square miles of rainforest— an area larger than the five boroughs of New York City— supporting 10 indigenous communities both financially and environmentally. Collectively, we planted 5,130 trees, reforested 8.58 hectares, and captured 2,173.5 tonnes of CO2, making a tangible impact in the fight against human trafficking and environmental degradation.
Globally, NFS has built critical anti-trafficking programs in 12 countries this year including Peru, The Netherlands, Thailand, Vietnam, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Mozambique, Rwanda, Australia, Japan, South Africa, and the United States.
AN INCREDIBLE YEAR FOR EMPOWERMENT
Looking back, the impact we’ve been able to make in 2023 was the strongest, broadest, and most powerful yet- and this is all due to your support of REBBL drinks and our collective mission with NFS. With every purchase, you are enabling a positive impact that not only changes the world today… but helps us to create a better future. As NFS founder Dave Batstone says, “there are real people on the other end of every bottle”. And you’ve proven to us year after year that “Empowering The People” is a mission worth driving for.
We can’t wait to see what we make happen together in 2024.
