At Zloart.com we’re very passionate about the most important issues that we face as a society. There aren’t many issues that our world faces that are more important than the travesty of human slavery that exists all around the world today. There are some things you see on the news that are so heart wrenching that you choose to just turn a blind eye to because you don’t want to feel down. But please don’t be silent when it comes to the issue of human trafficking. That’s what we have named our campaign that raises money for the International Justice Mission.
We’re so passionate about this cause that we’re not just donating a portion of the sales, we’re donating 100% of all the proceeds of all the sales of this limited edition art.
Did you know there are more human slaves in the world today than ever before in history. Researchers say that sex trafficking is playing a major role in the spreading of HIV all around the world. There are an estimated 27 million adults and 13 million children around the world who are victims of human trafficking.
An estimated 30,000 victims of sex trafficking die each year from abuse, disease, torture, and neglect. Eighty percent of those sold into sexual slavery are under 24, and some are as young as six years old.
Although human trafficking is often a hidden crime and accurate statistics are difficult to obtain, researchers estimate that more than 80% of trafficking victims are female. Over 50% of human trafficking victims are children.
More than 30% of all trafficking cases in 2007-2008 involved children being sold into the sex industry. Imagine if you are someone you cared about was forced into slavery. How passionate you would be to try and help free that person. We’re asking you to help bring justice to the oppressed. To be a voice for the voiceless. To not be silent in the fight against slavery.
