4.5 million of the 20.9 million victims of human trafficking worldwide are forced into sexual servitude.

A modern form of slavery, it is estimated that 76% of transactions for sex with underage girls start on the Internet. In King County, WA, a study conducted over a 24-hour period revealed that 8,800 people were online soliciting themselves for sex, and 27,000 were soliciting to buy. At any given time, 300-500 under aged girls are trafficked in King County. The average age of entry is 12-14 years old, with some as young as 8 or 9.

Carol Loya, a local resident and owner of Truce Spa, founded Escape to Peace after she witnessed the horrors of the sex trade during a 2012 mission to Pattaya, Thailand. Pattaya has over 800 bars and is estimated to have as many as 1,000 girls, or more, for sale on its infamous Walking Street. As a former Ambassador for the non-profits Shared Hope and Not Abandoned, Carol’s mission was to rescue girls being sold as sex slaves. She often did this by taking them to dinner to talk, then bringing them to a designated safe house. Realizing the sex trade was in her own backyard in King County, Carol made and sold soy candles at TRUCE Spa to raise awareness. She packaged the candles in a way that told the story of a 12-year-old victim of sex trafficking right here in Seattle.
