Real Men Don’t Buy Girls campaign was launched this week by The Demi and Ashton Foundation(DNA) .With celebrity support, this interactive video campaign aims to educate the public about child sex slavery in the US.
This industry was first brought to Kutchers’ attention when he saw a ‘Dateline’ feature on sex trafficking in Cambodia. He watched 6-7yr old girls being raped for profit. So, he did something about it and started researching. In the US alone, 100 000-300 000 girls are ENSLAVED and SOLD for SEX. Worldwide, upwards of 1 million girls are prostituted each year. This industry generates $39 billion annually. The campaign aims to address the male psyche while being entertaining and informative.
My daughter is 6yrs old, she plays, she laughs, she is innocent. It is my role to offer protection, to inform and educate her so she can live in a world equipped with knowledge to make a difference where needed, to be safe and to be happy. This is a right all children should have. BUT, somewhere in the world, a 6 yr old girl is being raped, enslaved, SOLD.
In Nepal, girls are taken across the border from Nepal to India either through force, fraud, and/or coercion. This is where they are eventually sold. Can you imagine what lies ahead?
Kindred Spirits supports the work of The Red Thread Movement to rescue girls at the border and provide safe houses. You can purchase and wear a RED THREAD and Kindred Spirits will donate 100% of profits to continue these rescue efforts.
Thank you for your support and WEAR FREEDOM!
