This Summer, Not For Sale hits the MUSIC scene!
Whether you're an inspired listener or an aspiring artist, Not For Sale offers you even more ways to synthesize your passion with the fight to end modern-day slavery!
Join Not For Sale at SOULFEST July 30 - August 2
Soulfest is New England's premier Multi-day Music Festival and Family Retreat. Soulfest has 5 stages featuring over 100 world renown Christian artists and speakers. SoulFest is four days and nights of inspiring music, activites, and fellowship, all in a safe and beautiful setting. Whether camping on site or locally, or staying in one of the many motels, condos, and hotels, or attending for the day, SoulFest offers a unique and inspiring experience for families, church and youth groups, as well as individuals.
Since its inception, SoulFest has evolved to become champions of smaller New England based charities as well as continuing an effort to raise awareness and inspire responses to the plight of Africans, the results of extreme poverty in the US and abroad, modern slavery, and other critical issues. Jesus wasn't giving advice when He said to Love our neighbor and look out after the least of these. Matthew 25: 1-46 is printed in every issue of the festival program.
This year, Not For Sale has partnered with Soulfest to bring awareness about modern-day slavery. Come out to support NFS and hang out with David Batstone and Kique Bazan after they speak from main stage! Go HERE to learn more and purchase your tickets!
Message from a lead singer, with a heart to contribute....
"Hello! My name is Felicity (Flee), and I'm lead singer for a band called The Sum in Athens, G. Ever since the first time I heard about human trafficking (more specifically, young girls in Cambodia being sold into brothels) 3 years ago my heart has ached to be a part of raising efforts to help in any way I could.
I've been looking for ways to help through music and the band. Today, through what I believe to be divine intervention, I arrived at your website.
My desire is to have a part of our concerts be exposing the audience to the reality of modern-day slavery, and to provide them with the knowledge they need to make a difference themselves, in more mays than just monetarily."
