What is human trafficking?
Human trafficking, also known as modern-day slavery, is the transportation and sale of human beings for sexual exploitation. It is estimated that more than 800,000 people are trafficked every year and 27 million people around the world are presently living in slavery. More than half of trafficking victims are women and children. Victims of human trafficking are most commonly forced, deceived, abducted, or sold by their families, transported and then sold into slavery. The world is slowly waking up to this modern-day slavery and seeking ways to fight it.
Is Crowned Free a for-profit organization?

How does Crowned Free give back?
Crowned Free gives back in two ways. We partner with organizations that employ those who have been rescued and/or teach them a trade.

We also give back by employing survivors to make over half of our products which are made here in the US and around the world. We work with organizations we personally have connections with who have fair labor practices. That’s of utmost importance to us! Our products are being made here in the US, Cambodia, Vietnam, Nepal, South Africa, Asia, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, Israel–literally all around the world! We work with mostly small artisan groups who create our products for us. We also started a program with local survivors in our home town of Grand Rapids, MI who make our candles and pillows for us.
