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!
Jamie Walton is one of the most caring people you could ever hope to meet. She's waging war on an issue that is non-partisan, yet also something a lot of our leaders seem to prefer to sweep under the rug. Through her passion and energy, Jamie is bringing the world of sex trafficking out of the shadows, and our public heightened awareness is absolutely making a difference.
The Wayne Foundation deserves your support - whether by direct donations, choosing them as your AmazonSmile charity, or just by spreading the word on social media. Do it! :)
I came into contact with "The Wayne Foundation INC" around 2013, and Jamie Walton shared her story with me and my friend who ran a podcast. Her story was impactful and brought me to a heigntened state of awarness of what "The Wayne Foundation" is about.
In life we have SO many non profits, but NONE are like "The Wayne Foundation" which has the most pure of intentions and is just here to HELP.
We live in a society of where so many "false" non profit's try to rise up. That time is done..
The real non profits that help are on the rise, with "The Wayne Foundation" on it's way up to make this year an amazing year so that 2017 brings about stuff so amazing that it can not be predicted or comprehended!
Please donate anything you are able to, its not just about money. Be WHO you are , and offer what YOU can.. Support, talking, money etc..
Take action on a cause that is REAL and here to help others!
Thank you for anyone who read's this and GOOD VIBES TO YOU!!
Much love !

Heroes are real. They are not just in comic book & movies. The Wayne Foundation are reaching those in very dangerous situations & provide them with a safe environment & aid them through the heartbreaking effects of sex trafficking. Please help them help others.
I havent personally helped THE WAYNE FOUNDATION yet but i hear their work, know their work and respect their work. TWF sheds a light on a problem and a start up solution that America doesn't spend enough time and money investing in. Human trafficking is a big problem in the states and across the world and I applaud Ms. Walton and her compatriots for their work and I hope to help as much as I can.
The Wayne Foundation is a much needed charity. The love, respect, and support they show victim's of sex trafficking are a breath of fresh air. As a survivor of Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking, I will always speak in support of TWF. I am where I am in life, in large part to founder Jamie Walton. God bless you Jamie, and God bless you TWF.
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!
The Wayne Foundation continues to work hard at raising the awareness of domestic human trafficking, they even helped get a new law instated.
i personally am happy to make a reoccurring monthly donation with the knowledge that one day they will be able to open the rehabilitation centre to help turn around the lives of people less fortunate.
I feel that even though the-wayne foundation is still raising the money to open up a rehabilitation center for victims of domestic human trafficking, they are actively and successfully promoting awareness and helping to making actual changes. The President Jamie Walton has been speaking at various conferences, any fee donated directly to the-wayne foundation, raising public awareness, via interviews, podcasts & television. The-Wayne foundation has also been actively supporting the PA Senate Bill 338 and 885 with PA State senator Daylin Leach, this is for the national human trafficking resource center hotline notification act. I think that for a woman who holds down a full time job and manages all of the above, i consider The-wayne foundation a great success. I for one am happy to continue supporting this great cause and if nothing else i encourage you to learn more about domestic human trafficking and pass on this information to others.
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.
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.
The Wayne foundation is an amazing organization with a real purpose. You can really stand behind the people that are involved with this program. I recommend that every one checks them out and see they things hat Jamie Walton has accomplished
This organization has huge goals. Fortunately, it has a leader in Jamie Walton that makes those goals seem attainable. TWF aims to provide shelter and care for girls who have been the victims of the sex trafficking industry. They would be cared for, rehabilitated, and provided with the tools to succeed in a world that can seem unsympathetic. This is an important organization.
It is no secret that politically charged issues cause a division among citizens of the United States. This is no more prevalent during an election period. However, The Wayne Foundation exists to promote a cause that we as the American public can all rally behind as one strong voice. A vision to end human trafficking in this country is an ideology with no hidden agenda, no selfish political motivation, and no dispute towards its moral objectives. Simply hearing the story of founder and President Jamie Walton is enough to move any caring human being into action. Beyond her first-hand experience in the world of child sex trafficking, Mrs. Walton has publicly made it very clear what her intentions are with The Wayne Foundation. She has stressed financial transparency and fiscal responsibility in regard to how the organization is run. As a CPA, I find this a primary strength of any organization, non-profit or otherwise. If her business sensibilities were not enough, Mrs. Walton also makes herself very publicly accessible and available to anyone who reaches out to her through public appearances, social media, and even personal email. For these reasons, I feel compelled to write this review of The Wayne Foundation, an organization who truly is trying to make a difference in this world and in the lives of those who may feel like the world has turned its back on them. This is the heart of what true compassion and caring are all about.
Heroes stand up for those who can not. They fight to protect those incapable of defending themselves . Children caught up in prostitution trafficking and slavery need heroes to stand up for them. It is horrible that these things occur. It is much easier to pretend that this isn't really happening in the 21st century ... but it is. Jamie Walton is more than just a survivor of these atrocities She is a hero fighting to help those children escape.. Heroes stand up for those who can not , and they should never have to stand alone. Jamie Walton is a Hero and I am proud to stand by her and The Wayne Foundation
The Wayne Foundation is one of the very few human trafficking organizations that is doing the right thing. Very few of these organizations are led by survivors of this crime, because so few of them have the courage to really do the hard work that has to be done. Jamie Walton is courageous, hard-working and smart. So, to all the girls and boys out there who are victims of this abuse, hang on! Jamie is coming to get you!
