We're very impressed!

Jason Mraz became the first celebrity to participate on the ground with "Free the Slaves", a nonprofit organization whose mission is to "end slavery worldwide."

Jason traveled to Ghana this past week and spent five days in the country traveling with a former child slave to learn more about the injustice. James Kofi Annan, Jason's guide, founded a school in Winneba, where many former slaves come to learn and be free.

Peggy Callahan, the organization's co-founder and executive producer, said that it was very special for her and the children to see Jason's involvement with the cause:

"The movement to end slavery really needs more voices, but they really need to be authentic voices, people who really do care about an issue. And Jason's one of those people, and he's willing to take the time to find out."

It's horrible to think of what these poor children are going through, but it's wonderful to know there are those fighting for their freedom.

Props to you Jason for doing some much needed good in another neighborhood!
