The Purpose

The Purpose

Slavery exists in every country of the world, including the United States. In the United States, 1 out of every 5,000 people are held in slavery. The existence of slavery in the United States is largely hidden from the public eye because it is illegal. The public understanding of modern-day slavery has been diminished because the definition of slavery has been changed. Today we call slavery “human trafficking” and “sex trafficking”. Although the definition has changed, the impact is the same.

Today slaves are brought to the United States from all over the world, not just Africa. Some slaves are forced into prostitution, while others are forced into hard labor. Most slaves are brought to the United States at a very young age. In Colorado Springs where On Board With Jesus is headquartered, the average slave is only 12 years old.

What We Are Doing

On Board With Jesus is committed to financing the ministries and organizations fighting modern-day slavery. We donate a portion of all profits to organizations that are committed to fighting slavery across the world.

2018

On Board With Jesus donated 10% of its 2018 profits to The Exodus Road. The Exodus Road performs undercover investigations into sex trafficking operations, and reports their findings to police so that sex traffickers can be arrested and victims can be rescued. The Exodus Road has rescued over 1,200 people, and their investigations have led to over 500 arrests. It was an honor to be able to donate to an organization that is actively involved in both the rescue of survivors and the arrest of offenders. This important work could not continue without you. When you shop from On Board With Jesus, you help us raise funds for the continued rescue of sex trafficking victims. Thank you for shopping from On Board With Jesus! Your are changing lives.

2017

On Board With Jesus donated 10% of its 2017 profits to Restore Innocence, a Colorado Springs based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides basic necessities to survivors of sex trafficking. Because of customers like you who shopped from On Board With Jesus, Restore Innocence will be able to donate thousands of basic necessities to sex trafficking survivors across the United States. Thank you for shopping from On Board With Jesus and helping to rescue sex trafficking victims from slavery!
