TOGETHER, WE WILL DEFEAT HUMAN TRAFFICKING.
“We believe it is our God-given responsibility to abolish slavery by using our passions and talents to speak up for those who have no voice. Our mission is to bring others to freedom by raising awareness of this unspoken reality in our communities.”
ABOUT THE LITTLE TREE PROJECT
Who are we?
We are creatives who have a heart for those who are bound in the tragedy of sex slavery.
We are a small business that focuses on raising awareness of human trafficking in our local community, and we also raise funds by selling hand-crafted products.
What is our purpose?
Our desire is to put our faith into action by using our gifts and talents to not only raise awareness, but also to raise charity funds supporting those rescuing the victims of human trafficking. With the funds raised, divided portions will go to the A21 Campaign, EyeHeartWorld, The Little Tree Project, and the local church.
To find out more about the foundations we contribute to, visit Who We Support.
How do we raise awareness & funds?
We raise awareness globally by posting statistics about the reality of modern day slavery to social media. We raise awareness locally by speaking in local schools, churches, and other venues throughout our community.
We raise funds by selling our very own hand-crafted items.
Once products are sold, either through our website or at local venues, the proceeds are contributed to the organizations oriented to end human trafficking. (A21 Campaign, EyeHeartWorld, and The Little Tree Project)

THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME
"THE LITTLE TREE PROJECT"
Our inspiration came from the story "The Story of the Tree".
"The little tree lived on a mountaintop and wanted to grow big and tall. Many years passed. One day a woodcutter came and cut down the little tree. Overwhelmed with confusion, the tree could feel her dreams dying with each devastating blow from the ax. The tree's once-peaceful world immediately was filled with chaos as the woodcutter shaped the tree into a feed box for animals. The little tree no longer stood tall, but would soon see that it would be holding the greatest treasure that the world had ever known — Jesus Christ, our Lord."
With this story in mind, we believe that God has a greater purpose for the victims of slavery than to be a "cut-down down tree" without any purpose. God has a greater plan! He desires to take the dreams that have been stripped from these women, men, and children and create something beautiful. Like the little tree, each survivor will be fashioned into something that God can use. Their stories will reach the hearts of so many people.
Like the little tree, each survivor of slavery will be fashioned into something that God can use. Their pains of the past will be used to help remedy others lives who have experienced similar struggles, and their legacy will proclaim the true hope found only in Christ. We look forward to the discovery, healing and restoration of these victims.
