The first thing I did when I opened my boutique was figure out a way to donate to an organization that I care deeply about. For each purchase with Wild Rivers Boutique 5% is sent directly to Operation Underground Railroad. Operation Underground Railroad paves the way for permanent eradication of child sex trafficking through coordinated rescue and recovery planning.
Human trafficking is modern day slavery and involves the use of force, coercion or fraud to obtain a form of labor or sex act. To this day there are approximately 40.3 million modern day slaves in the world.
Trafficking in persons is the third most profitable business for organized crime and the fastest growing form of international crime.
Your donation to Operation Underground Railroad supports their rescue efforts, which means more children rescued, more recoveries planned, more technology and more training.
Thank you for supporting a cause that weighs heavy on my heart.
