pink or blue? (heavy topic)

baby feet (pink or blue?)

Child sex trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world,
making $32 billion dollars a year.

Predators seek out vulnerable victims
and either steal them,
or lure them under false pretenses
into situations they cannot escape from.
Innocent children have become sexual commodities to be bought and sold
for the pleasure of exploiters.
These children are scarred for life and need help
– our help.

Sorry for the heavy topic (it's friday!),
but this horror has really touched my heart.
Imagining my child going through the torture
that these children go through everyday
really makes my heart hurt.

So we have partnered up with
Stop Child Tracking Now
to help raise money.
We are close to the people that run the Tulsa chapter,
and they are going after the predators!

$15 from each necklace sold goes straight to SCTN.

They will also be sold at the
Jenks RiverWalk tomorrow,
so if you are participating in the walk look for us there!

Thanks for helping us make a difference!

This is such a terrible reality that so many innocent children must live through. Thank you for doing this. I have purchased mine and I will wear it with pride that maybe, just maybe I've helped put an end to this crime.

It's so sickening that crimes such as this even need awareness groups and funding to combat!
Applauding Vintage Pearl for supporting this cause.
