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.

Anything Kevin Smith stands behind, I stand behind! I believe in the cause! Child trafficking is something we wish was just in the movies. This organization is bring it to light and helping banish it from existence. Keep up the good work!

This is a situation that we need to pay attention to in America today. We chose to ware blinders and think the world is all chill but it is not. As a male and molestation survivor I feel anything that brings these abuses to the light and helps those who were battered by them are a great boon.

As a survivor who was swept under the rug by the police and other government officials I can tell you that we need this organization. There isn't anyone to help victims of child prostitution in Florida and now TWF is here to try and do what they can. Its a crime with a lot of victims but no one speaking out except TWF. This is and will grow to be an amazing foundation with support of the community.

The Wayne Foundation is an organization not only committed to ending child slavery and sex trafficking, but, just as importantly, to rehabilitate the victims of this heinous crime. Founder and President Jamie Walton is a true life hero that has overcome so much and yet, instead of becoming cynical and hard, opens her heart and gives her all to help victims of this horrific reality regain a normal life. Jamie is a true inspiration that has an honored place on my short list of personal heroes.

The Wayne Foundation is truly a wonderful organization. It's goals are lofty, but I'm sure that with enough help, child trafficking and slavery will come to an end. Led by an absolutely tireless and inspirational person, Jamie Walton, who knows exactly how horrible the experiences of the child sex trade are, and supported by one of the finest (and funniest) men of our time, Kevin Smith, as well as a large number of people around the world, The Wayne Foundation strives for the day when they can build a facility to help the victims of this horrible crime. When that day comes, I would be more than happy to do anything to help, even if it means picking up a hammer myself.

I find it amazing that Jamie Walton has overcome the many obstacles in her early life to not only become a productive member of society, but to also strive to help so many young people being exploited today. She truly is an inspiration, and has brought an incredibly pressing problem in this country into the spotlight, where we can all work to eradicate it. The Wayne Foundation is taking the unorthodox approach of rehabilitating victims in EVERY way they need; mental and physical health services, lodging, education, etc. But right now, the organization is in it's infancy, and needs help to grow and flourish, thus helping the many young women out there that need it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Thankfully, no one I know has needed this kind of help.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Can't think of a thing

This organization has no measurable results, except selling t-shirts and promoting its founder, a former lingerie model. Do not under any circumstances give money to the Wayne Foundation. They have no annual reports. They do not file required reports with the IRS. They only sell cheap trinkets and try to get interviews in an effort to prove their worthiness. Interviews in 2012? Probably 30. Victims served? 0.

These are legitimate concerns that we are happy to answer. The Wayne Foundation has filed 990 forms with the IRS for years 2010, 2011. In addition, the financial records for 2011 have been reviewed by an auditor. This information can be found on our website http://waynefdn.org/about. As any NPO can tell you, the charity division of the IRS has a backlog of 6-12 months. Though the 990 forms have not yet been uploaded to guidestar.org, they in fact were filed in compliance with 501(c)(3) regulation. As far as our accomplishments, TWF has done substantial work with what little man power we have. In 2012, Mrs. Walton was asked by Sen. Daylin Leach of PA to help with Senate Bill 338, posting of the NHTRC hotline. With Mrs. Walton's assistance, this bill was passed and signed by the governor of PA in Oct 2012. Sen. Leach was so impressed with our impact that he has invited Jamie to address the state legislature in 2013 for Senate Bill 885, which would expunge the records of sexual trafficking victims. In addition, Jamie also presents lectures about human trafficking issues. In Sept she was invited to be the key note speaker for Mental Health America (Montana). She addressed the conference about childhood trauma, and the positive affects of mental health care. For more information, we suggest you look at our news section. http://waynefdn.org/archives/category/news As far as funds raised, all money goes towards building a rehabilitation facility for DMST victims. This is a multimillion dollar project, that will take many years to complete. Our main mission is to spread awareness of sexual trafficking occurring within the United States. Jamie's story has been heard by millions of people around the world. Her advocacy has informed the public about this grave injustice occurring in our country. Admittedly, no victims are being assisted by TWF itself, but we are partnered with many non profits who are already operational. Just last week, TWF donated $200 worth of pajamas to GEMS Girls Christmas fund. These PJs went directly DMST survivors currently in rehabilitation as gifts. Additionally, TWF refers victims to organizations in their area that are able to provide services. This is a lot of information. I hope you have found it helpful, as you seem to be not very well informed about our work.

A great organization. I know the founder Mrs. Walton personally, and I can think of no better, capable, or more intelligent person to lead such a worthy cause.
