Until, that is, the image of those girls in Europe comes to mind May 16, Katie rated it it was amazing Shelves: reads , from-a-friend. The abolitionist movement is not over, the fight is still beginning.

One of the resources mentioned gives you an average of slaves working for you based on your clothing, food, technology, and life style. My number was I want that to become zero. Figuring out how I fit into this movement is next on my to do list. Apr 15, Mandy rated it it was amazing.

What a book! When it arrived in the post, I was surprised to discover it was all about modern-day slavery. But I was intrigued because it was written by two normal-sounding, ordinary mums. Right from the Foreward, Refuse to do Nothing is gripping reading. Sometimes I was horrified by what I read; there were times it made me feel nauseous, there were lots of tears, and sometimes I had to take a breather between chapters so that I could process the issues raised. But I was compelled to keep t What a book! But I was compelled to keep turning the pages. Oh no, they are passionate that we each do our bit — no matter how small — to end the suffering of modern-day slaves.

The early chapters cover the fact that human trafficking exists — even on your own doorstep — and reveals some useful tips for how to spot it. There are more slaves now than there have ever been. Where do those components come from? How are they mined and by whom? Are the working conditions fair?

Which supermarkets make a point of stocking fair trade chocolate? And which are out for the cheapest price? Is it because the high street store is having a sale? Or was it manufactured in shocking conditions by slaves? Shayne and Kimberly are keen that we are not just shocked, but that we take action. They clearly point to actions individuals can take that will make a difference. There are useful websites to check which companies and stores stock fair trade goods and who stand against using slave labour.

At the close of each chapter there are reflection questions as well as suggestions of how to take action. As I read of the awful misery and suffering that human trafficking causes — and remembering an Asian expatriate working in Abu Dhabi who told my friends with tears in his eyes that they were the first people who had spoken kindly to him in months — I had to make some changes.

The UK national hotline for human trafficking is now on my iPhone, just in case. I find myself looking at people door-to-door salesmen, cleaners, etc with different eyes — are they doing this because they have chosen to do it or because they are being forced to do it? My husband and I are becoming much more selective about what we buy. You see, once we know about human trafficking, we have a responsibility to act.

Refuse to do Nothing is changing my life. Some of the horrific stories contained within its pages haunt me. I can make small changes: I can pray for an end to human trafficking. And I can be responsible about what I purchase. But I cannot sit back and refuse to do nothing…. Thank you to IVP for providing me with a free copy of this book for the purpose of writing a review.

The things the authors do really well are: - remind us of Helen Keller's words: "I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.

Yes, the book is about human traffickin I loved this book! It's about how two people found their calling and used their power to effect positive change in the world. I worry, though, that when they talk about "God's original design" and quote scripture, those whose motivation is not faith-based, but rather just a natural desire to do what is right, will begin to think, "Oh, this book isn't talking to me I wouldn't want any man who reads this book to feel it's not speaking to him, as we all have the power to effect positive change.

My hope is to attend more trainings this year to start getting directly involved in some initiatives and this book is a great way to learn what is happening, how to get involved and where to go to find more information online. I think the two author perspective was rather confusing, it might have helped to have it be author 1 first, then author 2 presenting their view in their respective halves of the book rather than switching back and forth.

I found myself confused as to who was talking sometimes since they're both women 'she' could be either if you're not paying attention to chapter headings which I'm wont to do. Overall a decent read. Mar 09, David Stewart rated it liked it.
