Mozambique or Bust: Watch it now

CNN’s Freedom Project followed a small group who came up with a bright idea to help former sex slaves - and the people who helped them realize their dream.

Their idea – ship unwanted bras from the U.S. to Mozambique where they can be sold in markets and help provide the rescued slaves with a wage.

Across the U.S. women have discarded bras in bedroom draws. In Mozambique the same item is a luxury. As the idea took off and the group hit problems shipping their cargo, others stepped in to help.

Now you can watch the entire “Mozambique or Bust” documentary, narrated by Mira Sorvino, an Oscar winner and goodwill ambassador to combat human trafficking for the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime online here in three parts.

How you can help

    Make sure there are no underwire bras. Make sure the bra is not too tight. Take the bra off if not needed to work at a job, etc. This is old news that tight bras cause lymph node problems.

    Think back for some most successful item of content. Now think of all the other approaches you might deliver this message. Would it work like a video? For an Info Graphic? As a more white-paper or guide? As a more detailed collection of shorter posts?

    Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!
