What if your child fell victim to human trafficking?... violated, abused, gang-raped, and tortured!
Right here in Riverside County we currently have over a dozen rescued kids - the youngest is eleven years old! Child trafficking is currently effecting thousands of teens and young children right here in our backyard; do you want to stop the horrible fate that awaits the victims of this injustice?
My name is Darlene and I have personally helped countless children who have been rescued from an unspeakable fate to help rehabilitate them. I have created the Women Against Child Trafficking (WACT) foundation in order to broaden the reach for helping more children beyond my individual effort. We have helped 44 children to-date and have established a goal to raise that number by 100 times over the next 24 months, with the help from companies like yours. Please join WACT in helping to stop the profiting of selling our nation’s children for sex and other unconscionable purposes. There is big money and power behind this sort of trafficking. It will take community effort and support to put a real stop to this organized crime of profiting from the destruction of innocent children’s lives – we desperately need your donation! Please visit www.WomenAgainstChildTrafficking.org to learn more about this issue and our cause.
FACT: Human trafficking is a 43 Billion-Dollar business in America, and a growing problem in our county. Young teens are being kidnapped weekly and then sold for human sex trafficking. Predators prey on teens via the Internet, Facebook and right outside of their schools. The U.S. Department of Justice estimated 14,500 to 17,500 people are trafficked every year. When I discovered that there was little to no help for these young victims I instantly got involved and became the Program Director for WACT. Human trafficking has grown from a $9 billion to a $43 billion-a-year industry. It rivals drug and arms trafficking for the most profitable criminal enterprise. If we can stop the people who are exploiting our children and raise awareness in young teens, we can make a big difference. The average age of a victim is 12-14 years old.
Women Against Child Trafficking collects weekly donations to help youth shelters that house the young victims. We also help raise funds for basic necessities to run the shelter and to feed rescued victims. WACT provides a Dignity Bag to a rescued victim; it is comprised of a backpack containing a t-shirt, sweats, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, body wash, chapstick, journal, pen, bottled water, granola bar, calling card and grocery gift card. On an ongoing basis we spread awareness by speaking in front of the community at Female Networking Events, Woman's Clubs, Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Clubs and Lion's Clubs. WACT collaborates with the Sheriff's Department, FBI and is a proud member of RCAHT (Riverside County Against Human Trafficking Task Force).
The Shelter provides daily one-on-one counseling, group therapy three times a week, transitional living programs for their families, shelter, clothing, food, school, educational supplies, art supplies, arts and crafts. The Shelter needs your help with office supplies, copy paper, folders, files, ink, trash bags, cleaning supplies, and gift cards to Costco or Wal-Mart to purchase food in bulk. Can you imagine feeding 17 children/teens three times a day?
Believe it or not, you can make a difference. Please help a child restore their life today. We can't change the fact that they were taken and abused in every way, however we can help them in their recovery and get them back to a healthy life. THE CHILDREN THANK YOU!
