When Erin Giles learned about the incredibly vast & nefarious sex trafficking industry, her heart broke open. She couldn't stand in silence. She had to do something. But what could one person do?
As it turns out - more than she'd ever dreamed possible.
End Sex Trafficking is a collection of 60 essays written by award-winning entrepreneurs, bestselling authors, and inspiring voices from around the world. You'll find first-hand accounts of the Southeast Asian sex trade, interwoven with essays about love & compassion, the essence of freedom, and the power of knowledge. It's a resounding call-to-action, with a message that hits straight to the core:
One voice can start a revolution. And that voice can be yours.
All of the authors proceeds for End Sex Trafficking will go directly to the Not for Sale Campaign, in support of the fight against sex trafficking.

A Q + A with Erin Giles - Business Philanthropy Coach + Editor of End Sex Trafficking
Question- Erin, what spurred you to start End Sex Trafficking Day?
Answer- I saw an amazing documentary about global sex trafficking that woke me up to the 27 million people who are enslaved today and I knew donating a few bucks wasn't enough. I remembered what Michael Bungay Stanier did with End Malaria Day and I knew I wanted to do something similar. I invited 60 amazing writers and entrepreneurs and then set out to raise 10k in 29 days so that the book could be published...and here it is.
Question- Is End Sex Trafficking Day going to happen every year or is this a one time thing only?
Answer- I plan on spear heading a creative collaboration each year, for at least the next three years, with the proceeds going to a different charity that is fighting for those enslaved in sex trafficking.
Question- How much money goes to the Not For Sale Campaign with each book sold?
Answer- With each paperback purchase $8.26 will go to the Not For Sale Campaign, which is what I would get if I were getting the authors proceeds, after printing costs and the Amazon wholesale discount.
Erin started as an entrepreneur by selling friendship bracelets in her elementary school hallway after recess, she walked out after her first shift as a server at a country club and produced the Rock the Runway fashion show in graduate school.

She "lost" herself in End Sex Trafficking Day and is now finding herself teaching other female entrepreneurs how to build a big philanthropic give into their business model. She blogs weekly, contributes to Huffington Post, has a podcast called Doing Good Business FM and gets to do it all while being at home as a stay at home mama in South Carolina.
