RESCUE THE CHILDREN

Rescue The Children

I want to talk about a sensitive subject today. I can’t beat around the bush with this one. It’s uncomfortable to even think about but it is real. It happens all around the world. It happens in the US. It happens in your town.

CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING

Let me hit you with some hard facts…

  • Human trafficking is the FASTEST growing crime in the world
  • The average cost for a child is $300 per night
  • There are nearly 2 MILLION children being held against their will as sex slaves
  • The average age for a child in the sex industry is THIRTEEN YEARS OLD
  • Human trafficking generates an estimated $32 BILLION in yearly profits
  • EVERY 30 SECONDS A CHILD IS SOLD INTO SEX TRADE

Let that sink in…

The facts above were a slap in the face to me.

A wake-up call.

I couldn’t believe this was something still happening in 2016.

I’m sharing this with you because spreading awareness of this epidemic is the best way to save these children.  Operation Underground Railroad is one of the current organizations working hard to rescue these kids. Their Underground Jump Team consists of former CIA, Navy SEALs, and Special Ops operatives that lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts. Once victims are rescued, a comprehensive process involving justice for the perpetrators and recovery and rehabilitation for the survivors begins. Learn more about O.U.R HERE. O.U.R has created a film to spread awareness of this epidemic. This film doesn’t consist of a single actor, it is footage of real people and undercover operations.

This is a story about the lost children and the rescue team’s exploits as they investigate and liberate enslaved children from around the world. These children may be physically lost and abused but their souls are beautiful and yearning for their youth back.  While watching this film your heart will race because it is shot to make you feel like you’re actually part of the team. You’ll shed tears because of the stories told right out of the children’s mouths of trial, triumph, and recovery.

“The Abolitionists” Film will be released NATIONWIDE on May 16th for ONE NIGHT ONLY

 

Tickets are on sale now and a portion of each of the ticket sale will go directly to Operation Underground Railroad to help rescue children all over the world. You can turn a movie into a movement, you CAN save a life. Purchase your ticket HERE.

I had the opportunity to meet Gerald “Jerry” Molen, the executive producer of The Abolitionists. Jerry also produced incredible films like Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park, Hook and The Little Rascals just to name a few. The man behind so many great productions is now behind a film with a very important cause. This film will pull on your heart strings and you’ll leave the theatre searching for how you can help these kids.

  1. I am in complete shock! I had to read those statistics a few times, I had no idea how big sex trafficking is, this cause needs more attention. Thank you for your contribution.

  2. I am completely shocked after reading your figures. Its very disturbing. Can’t believe that we are in 2016 and still facing this sensitive issue! Thanks for creating the awareness through your post!

  3. I read another post about this movie and I have to say I knew that child abduction was bad but never knew how bad. I definitely want to check this out! As a mother I couldn’t imagine my children going through this.

  4. That article was hard to read, not because of the writing, but about the content. As a mother it’s hard to think about children being sold. But I do appreciate you getting out the facts.
