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!
When I first heard of The Wayne Foundation I thought it sounded like it was for an awesome cause. And the more I got to know Jamie Walton herself and finding out more about what she does every single day, the more I cared. Not only does TWF help spread the word about trafficking and other exploitations to the general public and law enforcement officials alike, they also help those that are at potential risk and those already caught up in the exploitive mess of crime and perversion. Jamie Walton and everyone involved at TWF are real life heroes in my book! Good work!
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.
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!
Jamie has committed her life to helping others who were in her situation through the Wayne Foundation. Considering this is her groups first year in existence her financial are being filed at the end of the year. Her organization is a GuideStar Partner in Trust, which means that there is an open transparency to her books and to her organization.
For those who work in the non profit field like I do know, Guidestar's Partner in Trust Program is a top of the line program to keep organizations honest.
Please before you judge and condemn, take a look at the facts and please know from working with Jamie I can tell you her cause is true and she welcomes any questions regarding her organizations finances because there is nothing to hide.
There is nothing behind this cause but to truly help people who have fallen into unfortunate situations where they are taken advantage of.
I too had only heard about The Wayne Foundation through Jamie's SMinterview podcast with Kevin Smith. Anyone who doubts Jamie or Kevin's veracity should listen to the episode. They are frigging brutal and honest and sincere. Doubting this woman is really, really BS. And so is posting lies about her, the foundation, or Mr. Smith.
I also heard of Jamie's story through SMinterview on Kevin Smith's SModcast Internet Radio. Her story was compelling, heartbreaking and lovely all at the same time. I applaud her for turning it into a way to help others in her former position into a better life. Kudos to this organization for doing what we all should be doing: treating young women (and adult women) with the respect and love they deserve, helping them break their shackles of oppression, and helping them realize that they are in fact wonderful members of our society. I think Jamie is truly dazzling
I learned about the Wayne Foundation while listening to Jamie Walton on the SMInterview podcast. I was absolutely captivated by her story. She is one of the strongest, smartest, and most resilient people I have ever heard speak.
Since then I am committed to doing all I can to spread awareness of the WF and the plight of human trafficking. As well as, doing all I can to helping them achieve their goals of housing and aiding victims of this terrible crime.
To me, no one can better embody the spirit and mission of "non-profit" than Jamie. Her dedication to excellence and transparence in business practices exemplify the true meaning of charity.
Making people aware of the problem of child prostitution is one of the best things the organization could do. But the Wayne Foundation does so powerfully as well as effectively is pretty beautiful. But still better than making us aware of the problem, the foundation is actually proposing a solution. Not pie-in-the-sky, but practical. No one can fix the whole world, but creating a home, a place that girls can go to get out of the life, a safe place... They're making a difference.
