Join ROT5 as a Force for Rescue!

There'a lot of great charities and causes to give to out there. One that is very close to my heart (ROT5 co-creator Eric Shirey) is the end to sex and human trafficking in the world. It seems like the topic and epidemic known as trafficking is a taboo subject and nobody wants to talk about it, especially when it's referred to as sex trafficking. However, it's a very real and localized problem in almost every small town and major city across the United States and other countries.

In a way to support the battle to end trafficking, we've decided to adopt Traffick911 as one of our charities to support. Traffick911 exists to free youth from sex trafficking with a three-prong strategy of prevention, rescue and restoration. We'll soon be offering items up for auction to raise money for this worthy cause. Until then, you can donate by clicking here. Let Traffick911 know where you heard about them by telling them #ForceforRescue referred you. Be sure and use the hashtag #ForceforRescue to show your support and spread the word! You can read more about the organization after the jump.

 Traffick911 is a team of passionate people driven to free youth from sex trafficking.

Traffick911 began in 2009 by a local abolitionist who learned about this crime and decided that she couldn't stay silent. After months of research and connecting to networks across the nation, she pioneered training youth and first responders across Texas and built an enormous base of highly-trained volunteers, who have been instrumental in Traffick911's long-term success.

In 2011, an opportunity to present at a juvenile detention center gave insight on what became a highly effective venue for reaching high-risk youth. Since then, Traffick911's work in partnering with juvenile detention centers has gained national exposure and hundreds of victims have been identified sitting in these jail cells. In 2013, Traffick911 opened Triumph House, a long-term residential safe house for survivors of domestic minor sex trafficking.

Traffick911 was named the 2013 Outstanding Organization of the Year by the Fort Worth Commission for Women with commendations by the Fort Worth City Council, mayor and a State Senator. We have also been recognized by Homeland Security Investigations as a most-valued partner in this battle to save our American children from sexual slavery.

Traffick911 serves U.S. children regardless of religion, ethnicity, race, gender or sexual orientation. Our services are currently being offered across Texas. All donations go to support our work to free youth from sex trafficking and are tax deductible. Traffick911 is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Traffick911 is governed by an independent board of directors committed to guiding us in excellence and stewarding the resources that you entrust to us in order to free youth from sex trafficking.
