Hello everyone!

My name is Chase Alford, former Georgia Tech football player where I studied mechanical engineering. I have decided to take a step out of my comfort zone and FIGHT for the millions of children that are being sexually abused and trafficked in the world today. I know that God put me on this Earth to make a huge impact on peoples' lives. I want to help those that can't help themselves and that is why I'm fighting for these children so they can just be a kid and live a happy and normal life. 

I first heard about the issue at Passion City Church where they promoted the #ENDITMOVEMENT which raises awareness for the millions of people trapped in modern-day slavery. Suddenly, I was in shock when I began researching how big of an issue this was in the world, with over 40 million people trapped in slavery, aka human trafficking. I then read that 1 in 4 are children. I was not aware slavery still existed let alone it's a billion-dollar industry.

 Ending Slavery & Human Trafficking Hearing - Opening Statement - Ashton Kutcher

I began to dig deeper into the issue, and that is where I found THORN. Thorn is a non-profit organization that builds technology to eliminate child sexual abuse. After learning that Ashton Kutcher put his acting career on hold to be a co-founder of the company, I knew it was a huge problem in the world. I want to share with you a few statistics before I go into how THORN actually helps these victims.

  • 150,000 new escort ads are posted every day - Somewhere in that pile of data are children who are bought and sold online for sex.
  • The most vulnerable children - While anyone can be a victim, kids who are homeless or runaways, LGBTQ, African American or Latino, and youth interacting with the child welfare system are more vulnerable to this type of exploitation.
  • 25 million images are reviewed by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children annually. (That's 480,769 images per week.

THORN has developed a software, Spotlight, that has helped law enforcement find kids faster, 60% in time savings. Their product was developed based on the insights gained from their first survivor survey. Spotlight accelerates victim identification and helps law enforcement make the best use of the critical time they have to focus on finding more sex trafficking victims. Law enforcement doesn’t have enough time to navigate the online commercial sex market to find children and identify their traffickers. Spotlight has helped in identifying 14,874 child victims of human trafficking and 16,927 traffickers in the past four years.

THORN has also developed "Safer" which is used to quickly identify, remove and report child sexual abuse material (child pornography) from platforms. 

With your help, support and donations, YOU will be the voice for the children that are trapped in sexual abuse and trafficking. Every donation will help THORN be able to develop more advanced and innovative technology and software to find these children faster. One child is one too many and until the number of children trapped in abuse and trafficking goes to ZERO, we have to keep fighting.

So please join me for Brawl for a Cause to help these kids fight the fight that they can't!

THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT!!!!
