I truly believe in the message and goals of TWF . I find Jamie Walton to be an inspirational woman and have enjoyed watching her work and their vision grow.

As with 99% of everybody I learned about The Wayne Foundation via Kevin Smith's podcasts. However, I did not immediately donate. Why?

Because I am very wary of donating to charities. Far too many don't put the majority of the funds donated to the actual cause they promote. I spend (probably) way too much time vetting and researching charities I think about donating to, making sure that the majority of funds are going to the cause they promote, that those involved are doing more than padding their resume, and more.

I have found nothing to object to in donating to The Wayne Foundation. Jamie Walton is an awesome person full of sunshine and Good Thingsā„¢. She is very determined to meet and exceed the goals put forth for herself and the organization. She and her/the org's supporters continually come up with unique and interesting ways to engage potential donors and to raise awareness. You cannot go wrong with donating to The Wayne Foundation as it is a worthy cause run by dedicated and immensely approachable people.

Whether it's through their website, via Amazon.Smile (please choose them for Amazon.Smile) or now sending care packages you can do so with the Spider Mann (@spidermann) seal of approval.

Upon hearing Jamie's story on multiple podcasts, I became immediately taken in by the obvious passion & earnest efforts that the organization is putting into creating something meaningful. Since the project is such a large undertaking, I initially donated money towards helping them meet their first goal (acquiring a home for housing the girls they are going to be taking out of the sex trade industry & giving a new lease on life to). I didn't feel like I did enough. I have begun spreading the word to anyone who will listen, promoting the cause on social media & even recently created an art piece to use as promotion of the organization. It made its way through social media & was well-received. If it convinced one person to donate, then I feel like it was worth my effort. I wish I could help more, & am planning to do so as soon as I can. The more support the group can get, the quicker they will be to accomplishing these goals. Just remember... You Too Can Be A Hero!

The Wayne foundation, and those who run it are an inspiration m as a father, it pains me to know there are such evils in the world. It also give a me hope knowing there are people like the ones who run the Wayne foundation. People that try to make a difference to young women and children everyday. Please show your support . even if only kind words. Ever little bit counts.

First time i heard about The Wayne Foundation was from a podcast that Jamie Walton did with Kevin Smith. Jamie does great job running things.
I highly recommend to everybody to listen the podcast and maybe after that donate.

I first heard of The Wayne Foundation back in 2011, after listening to Kevin Smith's podcast. At the time I was just about finished writing a short game for children. I contacted Jamie and asked her if I could put an add in that game, and also donate 25% of the profits made from selling it to TWF. She agreed, and off I went!

Since the 25% profits from that game just wasn't adding up to a ton of money, I also started organizing yearly charity bundles. I contact publishers of role playing games, books, artwork - anything that can be digitized. They donate product, I sell the bundle for $20 or so and all profits go to TWF.

This is a cause that I'm all for - I like Jamie's can-do attitude, I like what TWF is moving towards and I like that they are educating the public about child sex workers - an issue that needs far more attention. They've got my support.

The Wayne Foundation is a very worthy organization. They are as transparent as any other charitable organization with their financials clearly listed on their website and as up to date as yearly filings would have them.

Not only do I support the mission of The Wayne Foundation, but I support them financially as well. I've personally donated money, as well as part of the profits from a publication and I've worked many other publisher in a fundraising drive to raise over $1800.

I trust TWF with the money that I've raised, and the mission that they are dedicated too.

I became aware of The Wayne Foundation through listening to one of Kevin Smith's podcasts and I have been inspired by both Jamie Walton, and the organization's cause. The horror and trauma that men, women, and children have to endure because of sexual trafficking and abuse is sadly very real, and this foundation is helping to not only stand against it, but to undo the extensive damage that it inflicts upon victims.

The Wayne Foundation is helping to battle a problem that seems to be overlooked by "polite" society. The horrors that men, women, and children have to endure because of sexual trafficking and slavery are all too real and this foundation is helping to take a stand against it. Every bit of effort counts.

This is a most excellent cause. Even if you can only toss them a couple bucks a month it all helps them reach their goal. Like coffee? You can even support them by buying a bag of their joe.

This charity is the result of a lot of hard word and determination, mainly by the co-founder and CEO, Jamie Walton. Jamie has put her all in to making this charity a reality and I am honored to be a volunteer and wear the ONLY Wayne Foundation cycling kit. This charity has the ultimate goal of ending the sexual trafficking in under age girls. This is not something that just happens on other "big" cities, but in small towns too.

Be hero and support this great cause!

This is a great organization and my favorite charity! I ask everyone to please give. The Wayne Foundation, Inc. spreads the word about domestic minor sexual trafficking and helps get passage of bills in states that are weak in protecting minors from this devastating crime. The ultimate goal is to build a rehabilitation center to make it possible for victims of this crime to get back into a normal productive life after suffering the cruelties they have faced. President and co-founder Jamie Walton is the best face for this organization being a survivor herself. You will not find a charity that makes the most of donations anywhere so please give what you can!

This is a great charity fighting domestic sex trafficking. Check out these FACTS: An organization with total transparency! Check out the financial reports: http://t.co/MKV9BOB The President of this organization does not take a salary and is totally committed to it's success. I have met her and know she is a woman with integrity and conviction! Co-founder Kevin Smith is a great film maker and a great orator to spread the word thru his media connections. I will continue donating to this organization until it's goal is fulfilled!

This is a very great charity involving human trafficking that really needs some financial support to move forward. Jamie Walton is a very special young lady who is using her life experiences to help other young ladies get on the right path and get the help they need. Jamie Walton is an inspiration to young people everywhere and I have made my own daughters listen to her brave telling of a heartbreaking childhood. If anybody has a spare dollar the Wayne Foundation really needs it!
