To bring awareness to trafficking to prevent and protect.
Operation Underground Railroad
Mission Statement: “Children Are Not For Sale.”
How It Works: O.U.R. is a non-profit rescue organization that has gathered the world's experts in extraction operations and in anti-child trafficking efforts to bring an end to child slavery. O.U.R.'s Special Ops Team consists of former CIA, past and current law enforcement, and highly skilled operatives that lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts. These operations are always in conjunction with law enforcement throughout the world.
Once victims are rescued, a comprehensive process involving justice for the perpetrators and recovery and rehabilitation for the survivors begins.
It is time for private citizens and organizations to rise up and help. It is our duty as a free and blessed people.
How to Get Involved: It can cost up to $50,000 for one rescue mission, $14,000 for one rescued child to be adopted, and thousands more for their therapy and recovery. One of the reasons why child slavery and sex-trafficking continues is the lack of MONEY. Something so meaningless should not be what is preventing these children from being saved. It might feel hopeless or that it’s a problem too big to solve, but it’s not. There IS something YOU can do to help. Your contribution is NOT too small or ineffective. It’s the responsibility of being human to take action and DO what we can. And that is to DONATE. You can also volunteer and get involved in other ways that are available. But if you don’t have your time to donate, donate the funds that will help those donating their lives to saving lives. Light will always overcome the darkness. Join our fire.

Fight the New Drug
Mission Statement: “Fight the New Drug is a non-religious and non-legislative organization that exists to provide individuals the opportunity to make an informed decision regarding pornography by raising awareness on its harmful effects using only science, facts, and personal accounts.”
How It Works: Decades of studies from respected institutions have demonstrated significant impacts of porn consumption for individuals, relationships, and society. FTND has created a voice for this worldwide crisis. The most impactful platform for bringing awareness to these topics. FTND provides resources–including deeper looks into the research, conversation blueprints, and tools for recovery. The foundation of the problem stems from the lack of education and awareness. This is where the solution begins.
How to Get Involved: Since 2009, Fight the New Drug has been sharing the science and research on the harmful effects of pornography. Help them continue to educate others and change the conversation about porn. It costs a lot of money to keep this non-profit running in the most impactful way possible. (Ex. Their professional educational Documentary called “Brain, Heart, World” was filmed and is now being used to educate students in schools about the dangers and effects of pornography and addictions).
