If you have been following Simply Earth for the past 11 months, you know that we are advocates of fighting human trafficking. We’ve read hundreds of stories about little children being taken away from their families, women forced into being sex workers and even men being slaves at this modern age. We don’t want to read more of that. Instead, we want them to have the peaceful lives that they deserve.
This year, we partnered with eleven awesome organizations who are in the forefront of ending human trafficking. These people get on the ground, do deep research and find ways to rehabilitate the lives of the victims. It’s definitely not an easy job, but they get things done.
Based both in Bangkok and the US, Nightlight helps rescue and restore the victims of human trafficking. They offer intervention and assistance by giving them the opportunity of having vocational education. They also teach the survivors some life skills and provide support in their spiritual lives.

A non-profit organization that brings justice to humans victimized by trafficking, A21 says they are fueled by hope. They want to bring freedom to victims so they have a better story to tell and an independence they have long waited for.

Destiny Rescue is another non-profit organization we at Simply Earth are fans of. Not only do they rescue and restore the survivors, they give them a voice in times that they are voiceless. Their goal is to see the end of human trafficking in our lifetime.

This particular organization is close to our hearts. We personally met up with them in Cebu City in the Philippines. My Refuge House doesn’t only rescue victims of trafficking, they take them in to make sure they are well and stable. They give spiritual and educational support until they are able to stand on their own.

Another organization close to our hearts, Freedom Cry is an anti-human trafficking group that is based in our hometown. They provide restoration bags to those who survived trafficking. It has a set of clothes, toiletries, and other items to make them feel like they have a home. They help facilitate counseling and find homes for the survivors too.

Led by Dr. Lois Lee, Children of the Night is devoted to saving children from prostitution. Dr. Lee has saved more than 10,000 children from this “industry” - more than any sex trafficking program. Her organization is privately funded and provides education to the survivors to lead more productive lives. In 2011, she opened WOW, a live online tutoring program for children and young people that were once victims of sexual exploitation.

Another advocate against sex trafficking, Shared Hope International is determined to end this crime by preventing it, restoring the survivors, and bringing them the justice they deserve. They train and raise awareness in communities to avoid wasting the youth of today. SHI also has partners to help them in this mission. They enforce state laws to make sure the traffickers get caught and have a rehabilitation program for those who suffered.

Simply Earth is a family-run business and we are very much in touch with our spiritual side. That’s why FAAST is another organization that we love being partners with. They are a group of Christian organizations that work together to fight slavery and trafficking. They emulate the works of Jesus Christ by bringing justice and dignity to those who are oppressed. Exactly what Simply Earth is about!

We are not just a company that sells all-natural essential oils. We want to change the world by helping those who are helpless. We want them to experience life beautifully, and we can only do that by helping each other. That’s why each month we choose an organization to partner and share 13% of our profits with. That is our way of helping--and you are part of it.
The Simply Earth Team is grateful for those who stick by us and continuously help us make the world a better place for the next generation. We are forever honored by your generosity!
