How can a baseball cap break the chains of commercial sex trafficking?
That’s a good question. And it’s a difficult one.
So here’s the answer – let me introduce you to our brave and brilliant friends at Gray Bird Cap Company, and their partners, Ransomed Life.
Meet the Gray Bird Cap Company
A group of fearless advocates, namely two brothers, Chad and Mike, who shine the bright light of education and awareness on the dark crimes of commercial sex trafficking in their hometown of San Antonio, Texas. Learn more HERE.
“We exist to bring expression, awareness and total freedom to those kept in/or recently freed from captivity. We believe the human race was meant to soar not to be kept in a cage (psychologically or physically).”
Now meet their valiant partners, Ransomed Life
“Ransomed Life exists to care for survivors, victims, and the “at-risk” of commercial sexual exploitation of minors. Our vision is to see every exploited youth redeemed and restored.”
Ransomed Life, a healing community for sexually exploited girls, works to heal and restore the lives of the victims of this terrible crime, using their Four Pillars of Hope:
- Community Engagement
A simple baseball cap really can help break the chains of one of the largest criminal enterprises in the world.
With the generous support of Gray Bird Cap Company, $3.00 from every cap sold is donated to help support Ransomed Life.
But Gray Bird Cap Company doesn’t stop there. They also provide creative opportunities to enlighten and empower the public on how they can help to stop DMST (Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking), too. They want your questions, your ideas, your involvement in this fight.
They want everyone to have the chance to SOAR, but they can’t do it alone. Reach out to them to learn how you can get involved HERE.
To be honest, the subject matter of this blog was challenging for me. It took me quite a while to get my head around it, because the statics are horrifying and overwhelming and truly feel insurmountable. Certainly, bigger than the sale of one small baseball cap!
BUT – today, January 11th, is designated as Human Trafficking Awareness Day, and it occurred to me- it is possible to break the chains of human slavery…
One baseball cap at a time.
We most humbly thank you, Gray Bird Cap Company and Ransomed Life, for tackling this most egregious wrong, one cap at a time.
