We Can’t Be Bought3 min read

As a human, you’re born into the world armed with dreams and ambitions about what you want to do with your life. It’s the amazing gift we have at birth called, free will—the ability to choose our own paths, own our actions, steer our lives…

But what happens when someone of power renders our free will useless? What happens when they sell us like a piece of meat to make money off of our bodies? What happens when they force us into labor against our will and reap the profits? What happens when they steal our voice, our rights, our freedom? 

The International Labour Organization estimates that there are 20.9 million victims of human trafficking globally.

  • 68% of them are trapped in forced labor.
  • 26% of them are children.
  • 55% are women and girls

You might think that slavery no longer exists, but—unfortunately—you’d be wrong.

Modern day slavery is alive and well. While you eat your breakfast, a missing child will likely be forced into prostitution. While you brush your hair, a woman somewhere in the world is performing a sexual act against her will or will be beat, maybe even killed, for disobeying. 

During the month of January, Only Human will give 10% of all profits to help a nonprofit called Polaris on their mission to end modern day slavery.

Tell the world you can’t be bought. Help us end human trafficking once and for all.
