Seattle-based soy candle brand The Beauty of Hope has partnered with the non-profit organization Rescue:Freedom to further its mission of ending human trafficking. Through the partnership, The Beauty of Hope is sponsoring a safe home in Thailand to house up to 50 women and children who are survivors of sexual exploitation.
The Beauty of Hope leadership team and its resource partners at Rescue:Freedom are working together to identify the physical and psychological needs of the victims of sex trafficking in Thailand, a well-known transit, source, and destination country for human trafficking. Because millions of individuals and families migrant into Thailand each year, the risk and vulnerability to trafficking and exploitation increases annually. Many cases involve minors, mostly unaccompanied. It was these statistics in conjunction with the long history of sexual exploitation and growing need for help that inspired The Beauty of Hope to partner with Rescue:Freedom to build the safe home in Thailand.
On April 15, The Beauty of Hope’s leadership team traveled to Thailand to visit the safe home and learn more about the impactful work Rescue:Freedom and its other resource partners are doing on a daily basis within Thailand and beyond to end human trafficking. The brand is also sharing its findings abroad on its Instagram account.
Since its launch in 2016, The Beauty of Hope has always donated 10 percent of its revenue to non-profits that share in its goal of ending human trafficking and encourage a mission towards the deeper purpose of beauty. In addition to donations, The Beauty of Hope team also volunteers time and resources to non-profits as well, including organizing clothing drives, assembling care packages, participating in anti-trafficking events, and more.
