Did you know that child sex trafficking occurs in all 50 states of the United States of America? And that of the more than 23,500 reported cases of runaways to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in 2018, one in seven were likely victims of child sex trafficking?
I didn’t. At least not before I met Cayla Craft.
Mommy Millionaire Cayla Craft is a business coach who, for the past years, has made it her personal mission to help moms discover their potential and create prosperity in every aspect of their lives. An ER nurse turned self-made multimillionaire and bestselling author, she has recently embarked on a new mission to help rescue children from sex trafficking and sexual exploitation.
“What I’ve found out is that most of us actually think that this is not something that can happen in America, and that could not be farther from the truth,” she explains. “I recently had Tim Ballard, a former Special Agent for the Department of Homeland Security and the CEO of Operation Underground Railroad (OUR), in my podcast and according to him, Americans are the number one consumers of child sex, which means that our kids live amongst a very large population of pedophiles.”
“As a mother and a human being who cares about the welfare of others, I cannot just stand by and watch this monstrosity happen around me when I know I can do something about it,” she adds.
OUR is a non-profit organization that’s composed of experts in extraction operations and anti-child trafficking efforts. It’s an entity that works tirelessly day and night, 365 days a year to put an end to child slavery. Cayla has been assisting their efforts by helping spread awareness about child sex trafficking and by rallying her community of Mommy Millionaires to provide financial support to the organization’s work.
In total, Cayla is aiming to raise $100,000.00 by the end of the year to help fund an OUR rescue mission from start to finish. For the uninitiated, massive surveillance and investigations are needed before actually doing rescue work, which is why just one operation could cost so much. And after extraction, OUR also takes care of rescued kids until they become adults or are adopted into loving families.
“This is a very big issue that is, sadly, not being given enough attention. Someone needs to help stop these heinous acts from happening. And for those who are thinking ‘Oh! That will never happen to my kid.’ Think again. Many parents have made the same mistake. Be vigilant. Learn how to spot a predator. Educate yourself on how you can protect your family against these people, and please, provide assistance where you can.”
