Happy Birthday To Us!

Happy Birthday to us!!  It’s hard to believe, but six years ago today, Eye Heart World began with an awareness event and a short run of handbags. Since that time it’s evolved from a simple response into a full fashion brand and a strategic mission focused on ending modern day slavery through awareness, prevention, and aftercare. Together, we’re able to make a tangible difference in the lives of girls and young women as we provide targeted prevention on the front end, and much needed support for those leaving the life of exploitation. So we wanted to take this opportunity to reflect on what all has happened and some of the plans we have for the future. Where we’ve been. Awareness:...

It's Not Normal - "The Product"

The Product. Every business centers around a product that is being sold. It is that good or service that people seek out and others work to sell.

Our New Headquarters

At the beginning of August we relocated our headquarters to the Green Bay, WI area. We are excited to announce that our primary focus in this region will be opening our first aftercare home for victims of sexual exploitation.

The Heart Tour

We are so excited for our first Heart Tour on July 11th in Mobile, AL, benefitting girls from Light of the Village in Prichard, AL. The Heart Tour is the latest initiative of Eye Heart World aimed at bringing human trafficking prevention to girls who are at risk. Through our alliances with local youth mentorship programs, we are able to host one-day events for girls in those programs and provide targeted prevention and education, while creating a fun, loving atmosphere. There are three main topics addressed:  1. Human Trafficking. We teach the girls what it is, how it happens, and how to protect themselves. 2. Value. We talk with them about their worth and value, helping them to see themselves as the beautiful, strong...
