Join our campaign to Strike Out Modern Slavery!

This season I’m teaming up with my wife, Erica May Scherzer, to help end human trafficking and modern-day slavery, and strengthen the anti-trafficking movement. Human trafficking is $150 billion a year criminal industry that denies freedom to 21 million men, women, and children in all 50 states and around the world.

Here is how you can help:

By pledging a donation for every strikeout I record this season, you can truly make a difference. My wife Erica and I are matching every single pledge you make up up to $25,000, doubling the effort to help end human trafficking and modern-day slavery.

Polaris will use this money to help fund the National Human Trafficking Hotline, a lifeline for victims and survivors that they can call around the clock to be connected to a network of services and resources across the United States. The hotline offers a safe space to report tips, seek services, and ask for help. Since December 2007, Polaris has responded to more than 25,000 cases of human trafficking in the United States and reported over 6,500 leads to law enforcement.


I’m asking fans to pledge a donation for one of the below pledge tiers:

Your support will keep me motivated throughout the season. Together we can ensure all people are free.


Polaris is a leader in the global fight to eradicate modern slavery. Named after the North Star that guided slaves to freedom in the U.S., Polaris systemically disrupts the human trafficking networks that rob human beings of their lives and their freedom. Our comprehensive model puts victims at the center of what we do – helping survivors restore their freedom, preventing more victims, and leveraging data and technology to pursue traffickers wherever they operate.

Thank you for your generosity and support! And if you cannot make a pledge or donation please be sure to share the campaign with your friends and family on Facebook, Twitter, and email. Every donation matters and will make an impact.

Let’s end human trafficking and modern-day slavery, and give people their hopes and dreams back.

Please contact if you have any questions about the campaign.
