Since its inception, 18for18 Project Rescue has raised over $400,000 and reached over 81 million with ourĀ anti sex trafficking awareness campaign. We recruit our friends and influencers to face their fears for one day by jumping out of a plane to represent the estimated 1.2M women and children that will be sold into sex trafficking this year alone, who have to face their fears everyday.
