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!

The amount of work needed to help bring this issue to light far exceeds what it should. Jamie Walton is doing everything she can to help actually make a difference and it shows. This organization is fighting a very serious problem and I am proud to help out in any way I can. DMST needs to be stopped and its victims need to be helped.

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 foundation has done some wonderful things to help people get out of some very unfortunate situations and to start people back on good tracks of life. Please do what you can to help to not only donate, but to spread the word. The Wayne Foundation is one charity I donate to every year and I intend to until I know that sexual traffic has ended

I like that the Wayne foundation turned fiction into functions. It allows average citizens to be the Batman! Please donate to help stop victims of child sex trafficking.

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.

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.

I come to know Jamie Walton's story by following Kevin Smith, Yes The Kevin Smith that brought us such films as Clerks and Mall Rats and Jersey Girl. But Seriously, Smith heard about Jamie from twitter, sat her down to listen to her story. He was so moved he recorded and posted it in his media empire for all his listeners to hear and be motivated.

I guess, Kevin Smith, much like myself was so moved that he and Jamie got together to start an organization that would help, home and protect girls similar to Jamie's story! Thus was born the Wayne Foundation. Helping give a girl a fighting chance in this world who was abused and sold in to sexual slavery known as Trafficking!

I urge you please support this charity! Listen to Jamie's interview and follow The Wayne Foundation's progress! It is truly moving and touching! Jamie is that one person who from darkness is a beacon of hope for many young girls and women out there! Lets help her build this organization to where it can do the most good!

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.

The team behind the Wayne Foundation cause - or more specifically, Jamie Walton herself - are inspirational and work harder than any charity worker I know. I donate as regularly as I am able, and will continue to do so for as long as I breathe!

I personally supported someone close to me through a long period of abuse. After hearing Jamie Walton's story, I wish I knew of some organization like the Wayne Foundation at the time to contact for information. TWF helps spread knowledge of child sex trafficking and slavery in order to end a crime that society seems to overlook or thinks is eradicated. This abuse is horrible for any human being, let alone one still maturing and discovering who they are. It would break anyone's heart to see someone they care about believe the only value they have is to be abused. Hopefully through awareness and the goal of a Wayne Foundation shelter, abused teens and children may learn their full potential and happiness

The Wayne Foundation is ana amazing organization that focuses on helping a very marginalized section of our population. Their goal, to create outreach programs and facilities to rehabilitate victims of sexual abuse and trafficking is worthy of praise. Not only is their goal sincere, their founder - Jamie Walton is a tremendous leader who believes they can make a difference.

important work for an under served cause. It is perhaps counterintuitive that those forced into prostitution might retur to their abusers but this is the case. The Wayne Foundation is trying to make safehouses where those young people escaping prostitution can be protected and recieve assistance during that transitional period

This charity serves to protect and care for a group of victims who have had the most brutal of lives. A donation to this cause is not thrown away on books or cards, but places resources directly where it will be needed. Creating a shelter and rehabilitation center for children who have been through the cruelty of sex trafficking is just a start. The Wayne Foundation's goal to expand their mental and physical care to include even adults means that even people in need who have dealt with their pain for decades could find a safe haven. There are few charities with such important, specific goals, marking this as an incredibly important one to support. The staff cares deeply for the charity and have been very eager to reach out and make sure donors are happy and aware. I cannot recommend The Wayne Foundation enough.

I've been an avid supporter of The Wayne Foundation since learning of Jamie Walton and hearing her story via the podcast interview she conducted with Kevin Smith. Since then, despite being in Canada, I've supported the Wayne Foundation both financially and by attempting to increase awareness through various websites that I contribute to. I have followed their goals and accomplishments enthusiastically! I truly feel that Jamie's personal honesty and courage infuse the entire organization with a sincerity and strength of purpose that is not often found in charitable organizations. Because of her great character, I am 100% confident that any time or money I contribute to The Wayne Foundation is well spent and will help to combat the despicable and unfortunate practice of Human Slavery!
