“When I was younger, I seemed to have a perfect childhood. However, behind the scenes was a completely different story. I was a victim of sex trafficking beginning at the age of 4 continuing until my early 20’s. To read my entire story, go to my website www.herobands.com. I hope in sharing that I can bring a message of hope, that no matter what we go through in life, we can heal and life can be wonderful.
Hero Bands was started with the hope of bringing hope. I wore these bracelets for years as a reminder. A reminder to be strong, to find peace and to remember that I was loved. I partnered with Operation Underground Railroad, O.U.R., to make a bigger difference in the world. I now make these bands for the children they rescue, hand stamped with customers’ initials so that the survivors know that there is someone they don’t even know who is invested in their recovery. I call these bands Safe Bands and I sell them at cost so that every child can have a band of their own. I also sell bands for purchase for others that need encouragement. From these bands, I donate $2 per band, directly to O.U.R. so they can continue to do what they do.
Help me bring hope to others. Be someone’s hero. Be your own hero.”
