Did you know it's estimated that between 20 to 40 million people are victims of human trafficking around the world? Millions of the world’s poor and those at risk are trapped in slavery and sexually exploited.
It is a $150 billion per year industry.
54% of trafficking victims are trafficked for sexual exploitation.
About 2 million children are exploited every year in the global commercial sex trafficking trade.
It's such a huge, global problem, it feels overwhelming, and it's easy to feel like what can just one person do?
But that's how change happens, one person at a time. So I'm doing my part, by donating 10% of my book profits to the wonderful organizations below, who are effecting change at a global, national, and local level.
