PROUD SUPPORTERS OF DESTINY RESCUE
While I was on maternity leave with my second child, I watched a documentary on human trafficking. Just five minutes into the documentary, I was sobbing uncontrollably. It had such a profound and lasting impact on my soul. I couldn’t watch any more, those five minutes were so horrific, I literally jumped off the couch, went into our home office and registered The Swag trading name, purchased the URL, set up the company and started the patenting and trademarking process. It has always been my goal and passion to create a revenue stream to help with this global issue. I’m proud to announce that since the 1st July 2018 Swag Australia donates a portion of every product sold either direct or through our wholesalers.
Since 2011, Destiny Rescue have rescued over 3,300 children enslaved around the world, helped keep hundreds more from entering the sex trade through their various prevention programs, ensured justice for those who have been wronged, and raised awareness to untold numbers. Their five step approach to tackling this global issue is why we have chosen to partner with Destiny rescue. Here is a snapshot of the great work they’re doing;
1. RESCUE THE SEXUALLY EXPLOITED AND ENSLAVED
Destiny Rescue rescues children from red light districts, brothels and sexually abusive situations.
2. RESTORE THE ABUSED
Destiny Rescue provides rescued children the intensive care and love they need to recover from the traumatic effects of sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. We provide them medical help, counselling, schooling, vocational training and all daily needs required to be integrated back into
society successfully. In addition, we provide a safe protective place for them to live, grow and experience unconditional love– a place where they can feel valued and esteemed; a place where they can be kids again.
3. PROTECT THE VULNERABLE
Destiny Rescue offers programs that help at-risk children and families reduce their children’s chances of being sold, lured or trafficked into the sex-trade.
4. EMPOWER THE POOR
Destiny Rescue believes in empowering the poor and giving them a hand up in life, not a handout. Our philosophy and goal is to help them become self sustaining through one of our many assistance programs. Simply put, we don’t want to create a welfare system where children and families become dependent on our organisation, but rather have a chance to become profitable through hard work and common sense.
5. BE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS
Destiny Rescue is committed to being a voice for the sexually exploited, vulnerable and poor who, in most cases, can’t speak up for themselves. We believe everyone has a right to be heard, especially those crying out for justice. Many times they are overlooked or tossed aside by society, but we are determined to be their voice – motivating and inspiring influencers to get involved and make a difference in the lives of the voiceless.
