“To send light into the darkness of men’s hearts- such is the duty of the artist.”
-Robert Schumann
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
-Margaret Mead

The People:
We’re a group of Comic Book Creators, who have come together, volunteering our artistic talents to raise money for the purpose of ending human trafficking in the world today.
The Problem:
There are currently 27 million enslaved people worldwide- more than double the number of enslaved Africans during the trans-Atlantic slave trade. UNICEF estimates that 1.2 million children every year are sold into slavery, most of it sexual. The US Department of Justice estimates 16,000 victims of human trafficking are brought into the United States every year.
The Project:

Webcomic Creators from all over the world are working together on a single drawing which will be available as a downloadable wallpaper for readers who donate to our fund raising drive! January 9th – 20th!

100% of the donations will be split between Love 146 and Gracehaven!

Love 146


Children are being trafficked and raped daily and slavery is one of the darkest stories on our planet. This physical, mental and emotional trauma can leave children broken and scarred for life. Interventions for these children are critical to their survival and restoration. For us, the hope of abolition is a reality today. Love146 works toward the abolition of child sex slavery and exploitation through Prevention and Aftercare programs. Love 146 was named an “Agent of Change” by GQ Magazine and recently earned the MySpace Impact Award for social justice. Love146 continues to be recognized as a leader in the fight to end modern day slavery.

 

Gracehaven


Gracehaven is a faith-based non-profit organization started in 2008 for the expressed purpose of providing shelter, security, and rehabilitation to girls under the age of 18 who are victims of child sex trafficking in central Ohio. Gracehaven is a long-term rehabilitation facility allowing girls to have a safe place to live in a home where they feel no shame for what they have been through. While at Gracehaven, the girls will be able to work toward a high school diploma, as well as receive specialized counseling and treatment for the horrible trauma and exploitation they have been forced to endure. Gracehaven recently finished renovating a home outside of central Ohio and is in the process of obtaining certification from the State of Ohio to serve as a rehabilitative shelter. They hope to be open sometime early in 2012. Once open, they will be able to serve up to 10 girls at a time.
