One hundred percent of the proceeds from the first Flipping for Freedom house were donated to our partner Hope for Justice. Together, were working to rescue victims of human trafficking, restore lives, prevent exploitation, and reform society.
With Young Living Essential Oils sponsoring the purchase of a house, we fixed it up, sold it, and donated all the proceeds to the Young Living Foundation to bring freedom to victims of human trafficking.
Starting on January 15, 2021, we worked with local companies and volunteers to flip a house in American Fork, Utah in seven weeks!
All the proceeds from the sale of the house supported our partner Hope for Justice who is fighting human trafficking here in the U.S. and in multiple locations throughout the world! Plus, once the renovations were complete, we held an open house and during the walk through the public had an opportunity to learn more about the cost of modern slavery and some of the ways to spot the signs of human trafficking.
“We all have a tremendous amount of value and the more that we understand that, the more we can benefit the people around us. It doesn't matter if you're somebody that can give $1 or somebody that can give $10,000, it’s all energy towards something greater. Everybody has something to offer.”
At the Young Living Foundation, we envision a world where our rising generation is free to thrive and create positive change in their communities. This type of freedom cannot happen unless we unite to create a world where no person is bought, sold, or exploited.
Today, there are an estimated 40.3 million people around the world who are victims of human trafficking—that’s about 13 times the population of Utah or more than double the population of New York City.
Through our partnership with Hope for Justice, a nonprofit organization fighting modern day slavery, we are rescuing and restoring the lives of men, women, and children trapped in abusive and inhumane conditions.
To date, we have supported the rescue, recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration of over 5,000 children worldwide. We also help support in preventing conditions that increase people's risk factors for human trafficking in the first place. We are currently supporting Hope for Justice’s efforts to develop a program in partnership with the U.S. State Department to train U.S. embassy workers to spot the signs of human trafficking. Since embassy workers interact with thousands of people traveling each year, the goal is to help them become a frontline defense to identify victims and to potentially prevent trafficking in the first place.
