We support Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s organisation Thorn. Founded in 2008, its purpose is to defeat human trafficers and child pornographers. In the last year it has tracked down 6,000 missing girls and boys. The actor’s are best known for having winning streaks at the cinema, predominantly in the 80s-00s; films like Dude Where’s My Car, Bobby, St Elmo’s Fire, Ghost, A Few Good Men, We’re No Angels and so many more.
The couple’s initiative is nearly ten years old is gaining traction the bigger the organisation reputation grows. Their cause is admirable and such a crucial one to raise awareness for as such abuse is ever-present and it’s a despicable evil that must be stamped out at all costs.
Here’s a clip of Kutcher talking on the Today Show, an American TV show where important people and celebrities are interviewed. He speaks about how Thorn has been working on digital tools to fight against websites where children and adolescents are bought and sold. “We’ve built a tool to help law enforcement prioritize their caseload, and recover victims and find traffickers,” he says about his organization’s efforts in 2016. “And we’ve found and identified and recovered over 6,000 trafficking victims this year. And we’ve found, identified and recovered 2,000 traffickers,” said Kutcher, during the interview. To see the whole interview, click here.
