Give for Freedom

Our vision is a community where sex
trafficking is not able to thrive.

What started out as an awareness and fundraising effort has exploded into a full scope of services. Through our work in Northeast Wisconsin and South Alabama, we provide aftercare resources for trafficking victims, prevention for at-risk youth, and training for professionals and community members.

Eye Heart World was born in 2010 when Brian and Season Russo decided to take action against human trafficking in an innovative way. For the first awareness event they organized, Season and her mother, Denise Foster, created 30 bags, hoping to raise funds for a safe home in their community. Supporting the cause in a tangible way proved to be contagious - every single bag was sold that day. To this day, our product line funds a small part of our operating budget and serves as a way for people to Carry The Cause.

Community Partners

Eye Heart World is grateful for the ongoing support of our dedicated community partners. We could not continue our efforts in the fight against human trafficking without their generous donations, acts of service and outstanding business partnerships.

What is the Orange Rose?

When the first Eye Heart World handbags were created, we set out to make a statement that would shine a light on the plight of millions around the world. We placed a symbolic orange rose on all of our handbags that represents the delicate and unique individual lives of those who are exploited. Each life deserves freedom - so when it's in your hand or on your shoulder, you don't just carry a bag, you Carry the Cause.
