Every month Crowned Free donates a portion of it’s proceeds to a specific organization. For the month of August we are giving to Love Justice.
Love Justice attacks trafficking at the most strategic moment—while it is in the process of occurring and BEFORE men, women, and children have been exploited or enslaved:
To date, Love Justice has 47 different transit monitoring stations located where trafficking occurs—near important border crossings or transit hubs in Nepal, India, Bangladesh, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Kenya, Uganda, Benin, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Rwanda, Namibia, and Cambodia.
When highly trained Love Justice staff notice a sign of trafficking, they stop the suspected trafficker and victim for an interview to determine if trafficking is occurring. If staff members recognize a red flag, they continue their questioning, separating the suspected victim and trafficker.
If further questioning reveals additional red flags, Love Justice staff take action by contacting the victim’s family, questioning the suspected trafficker, and if the situation warrants it, contacting the police to deal with the trafficker further.
The victim arrives at one of their shelters for protection, aftercare, and education about the dangers of trafficking as they assess if it is safe for the victim to return home.
They interview victims to gather data and criminal intelligence to assist our process of convicting traffickers. When possible, they guide the victim through filing a legal case against her trafficker.

Wear to Give is part of the #wearitshareit vision of Crowned Free. The purpose of our Wear to Give program is to give our customers an opportunity to share with us WHERE to give. We want to hear from you which organizations you support that make a difference in the lives of rescued victims of sex trafficking so that we might consider them for donations. We donate 15% of our profits to organizations working with rescued women. Our goal is to have many different organizations as recipients of the funds that are given away through the sale of each garment.
You make a difference with each purchase when you add a garment of Crowned Free’s clothing into your wardrobe. Crowned Free’s main goals are to offer you amazing clothes and change the lives of those that have been rescued from sex trafficking.
You’re wearing it. Together we’re sharing it.
How can I be sure that Crowned Free is making monthly charitable donations to anti-trafficking organizations?
Crowned Free commits 15% of the net proceeds from the sales of our collection every month to an anti-trafficking organization. We share and tag each of these organizations on our social media channels so our followers can learn more about who they are supporting with their purchases and also create another level of transparency. If you’d like to see more about how Crowned Free is making an impact you can check out our giving statements by clicking here. 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. You can learn more about that program here: https://youtu.be/XkFEmdMSMng
