Boots With A Cause
Our Natural Rubber Pine Boots are designed for the little adventurer in your life. Easy to put on and go!But for us, it’s more than just the quality in our vegan leather buckle and natural
materials used. We wanted a way to give back too! Our mission is to advocate for Human Rights and help aid victims of Human Sex trafficking, more specifically women & children. For every 4 victims trafficked, at least 1 is a child. In 2019 more than 70 million children case files were reviewed by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. Every pair we sell, we pray over & donate a percentage of our profits to non-profit organizations around the world.
Human trafficking is a crime that forcefully exploits women, men, and children. According to the United Nations, human trafficking affects every country in the world, but it’s not talked about enough.
So we’re talking about it, and advocating for change!
Trafficking involves transporting someone into a situation of exploitation. This can include forced labor, marriage, prostitution, and organ removal. This kind of exploitation is known by a few different names – “human trafficking,” “trafficking of persons,” and “modern slavery” are the ones accepted by the US Department of State.
It’s estimated that internationally there are between 20 million and 40 million people in modern slavery today. Assessing the full scope of human trafficking is difficult because so many cases often go undetected, something the United Nations refers to as “the hidden figure of crime.” Estimates suggest that, internationally, only about .04% of survivors of human trafficking cases are identified, meaning that the vast majority of cases of human trafficking go undetected. Human trafficking earns global profits of roughly $150 billion a year for traffickers, $99 billion of which comes from commercial sexual exploitation.
