Mission

Human Trafficking is defined as the exploitation of a person through force, fraud or coercion for labor or commercial sex against their will. While it is most often associated with commercial sex, trafficking can take many forms, including child labor, domestic servitude and migrant working. Victims include men, women and children from all backgrounds and walks of life. It can happen anywhere: in homes and on the streets, in factories and mines, and on fishing boats and in fields. Human Trafficking has taken over 24 million innocent individuals lives. Statistically, it is known to bring in over 150 billion dollars illegal profits annually. It has no preference on age, gender, race, or wealth. It lurks in dark alleys and in plain sight, it affects every corner of this earth. Human Trafficking is modern slavery, with more slaves today than any other point in history. 

Andi Lynn Designs is happy to be involved in the fight to end human trafficking. Its our promise to our customers that partial profits from every piece sold in any of our collections will be donated to a charity fighting to end the modern epidemic that is Human Trafficking. In addition to do our part, its crucial that as a retail business we seek out and work only with vendors who share our same value of freedom. In other words, we make sure all supply chains that go into every aspect of our products maintain a high ethical standard.
