Just recently found out that AnnaLynne McCord has picked up a Noble Award on for her work with The Blind Project. We’ve been fortunate to have her on our team to spread awareness about sex trafficking, to her Hollywood colleages.
Looking back when me, Anthony, and Chad started the organization our goal was to spread awareness and that’s why we called it The Blind Project… to open the eyes to those who are blind to the issue of sex trafficking. We are so amazed and humbled to see how far it’s come.
Have to believe that’s why me and Downy are in Thailand. Downy is helping women who have been exploited by the sex trade and I am working in advertising. But together, we can use our resources to help these victims and open the eyes of those here in Southeast Asia.
Below is a video from the event this past weekend. It’s a bit long but you get to see Anthony and a very good speech by AnnaLynne (by the ways, the person standing next to Anthony in the video is the wife of ‘Uncle Jesse’ from Full House, random).
I am excited to see what the upcoming year will bring. We have some new fashion / jewelry designers on our team and one of our upcoming projects will feature fashion goods made by rescued victims in Southeast Asia.
At the very heart of it all is the sad truth that slavery is still in existence today – much more than it ever was in history.
We are so very thankful for everyone who has supported The Blind Project thus far.
