My name is Angie, and I am hiking all 2,650 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada this year to raise money for THORN , a nonprofit that works to develop technologies that fight the trafficking and sexual exploitation of kids. They work to identify the kids in the pictures and videos, and then they coordinate with local law enforcement to hopefully recover those children.
The United States is one of the largest producers and consumers of child pornography in the entire world. The people who consume it aren't just the registered sex offenders three towns over: they're the people standing behind you in line at the grocery store, sitting next to you in 5 o' clock traffic, or singing in the choir on Sunday mornings.It's a real issue, and it needs to stop. If everyone reading this pledged just 2¢/mile, we could raise almost $50,000 to help fight this together. I am fully funding my own hiking. Absolutely nothing pledged will go towards my pizzas in town. Every red cent will go to Thorn.
