For the past two years, the Malouf Foundation has provided bedding for aftercare centers throughout the world set up by Operation Underground Railroad, a non-profit organization that rescues children from child sex trafficking. When Sam Malouf met O.U.R. CEO Tim Ballard through the Entrepreneur of the Year Awards program, a partnership was born. “We are in awe at the work O.U.R. does and the genuine goodness of Tim and everyone involved with the organization,” Sam Malouf said. “They lit a spark, and everyone in our company has been inspired to do more; to do something that makes a real difference.”
That “something” will start during Human Trafficking Awareness Month with an industry event on January 28 during Las Vegas Market featuring Ballard as the keynote speaker. The company plans to introduce ways industry partners and friends can get involved to help the more than 2 million children living as sex slaves, including many here in the United States. In addition, Malouf will launch a new line of products that raise funds for the Malouf Foundation’s human trafficking efforts. Those funds will support efforts like rescue missions, law enforcement resources, aftercare programs and education initiatives. “We’ve built great relationships in the industry with successful and awe-inspiring people that have giving hearts,” said Mike Douglas, vice president of sales for Malouf. “We know that when they hear these stories and they see the scope of the problem, they’re going to want to help. If we work together, we can have an incredible impact."
