My name is Ashley Johanna Sweat. I'm an author. In my latest novel, I introduced my characters to the human trafficking world. I have a special place in my heart for those victims and I wanted to raise awareness and get people thinking and talking about the topic. I would like to do a campaign for the month of April and donate 100% of my sales from Meca: A Life Within to O.U.R.
The only part of the human trafficking world that MANY people in the U.S. have seen is from the movie Taken. Not only are people naive to the fact that human trafficking is happening all over the world, but they are unaware that it happens in our own backyard. I want to open people's eyes to this horrendous act and get people involved in helping end it. If I can get them to buy my book, which will show them the disgusting ways of the human trafficking world AND let them know that their own money will be going to help stop it and save lives, then that will be a great start in hopefully a long and impactful relationship with O.U.R. and all my readers.
