By: Patricia Lynn/Shareably Ashton Kutcher may be well known for being silly and funny on television, but he’s recently revealed that his organization, Thorn, which helps find sex trafficking and child pornography victims and their abusers, has helped find around 6,000 victims.
Focusing on online trafficking, Kutcher worked with his ex-wife, to help an amazing 6,000 people regain their life back!
He explained about what their organization does by highlighting that they “build digital tools to fight human trafficking. The purchase and commerce for human trafficking are happening online, just like everything else now, and so we’re building digital tools to fight back against it.” He continues to explain that they’ve “built a tool to help law enforcement prioritize their caseload and recover victims and find traffickers. And we’ve [sic] found and identified and recovered over 6,000 trafficking victims this year. And we’ve [sic] found, identified, and recovered 2,000 traffickers.”
Kutcher and his ex-wife Demi Moore started the foundation together, and have proven that sexual abuse, along with the rest of the world, has turned to the internet to do its damage.
His latest pledge is to end child pornography altogether, explaining that “Our next battle, my next commitment…I’m going to make a pledge that I’m going to eliminate child pornography from the internet.”
While it can be easy to discount actors and celebrities to be out of touch with the rest of the world. There are a lot of people working hard and using their fame and money to do something more. Kutcher is leading the way in proving that celebrities can help make changes in the world.
