Why We Started

Human trafficking, also known as modern day slavery, is when one person victimizes another by controlling them through force, fraud, or coercion to use the victim for forced labor, sexual exploitation, or both.

It may be hard to believe, but there are more people enslaved now than at any other time in history.

Substance abuse is the long-term, pathological use of alcohol or drugs, characterized by daily intoxication, inability to reduce consumption, and decreased ability to function socially or at work.

Sadly, substance abuse is estimated to cost our society $700 Billion every year.

What do human trafficking and substance abuse have in common? They’re both huge problems throughout the world which many people either aren’t aware of or which they choose to overlook. In many instances, someone can fall victim to both of these issues. They are also problems that we can do something about. Through the Slave 2 Nothing Foundation, we have the opportunity to shine a light on these issues.

The Slave 2 Nothing Foundation's mission is to free people from being enslaved to any person or substance. We will fulfill our mission to combat human trafficking by

  • creating awareness, prevention, protection and partnerships and
  • by assisting survivors by encouraging and supporting effective programs and solutions.

In addition, we will assist individuals and their families in gaining freedom and healing from substance abuse and its affects through supporting with programs that thrive in promotion, awareness and healing from the consequences of drug and alcohol abuse.

Slave 2 Nothing was established in 2016 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and supports two different types of organizations: 1) those who educate and assist in solutions to eliminating human trafficking and 2) those who focus on treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of drug/alcohol abuse, as well as ongoing support for those previously enslaved to a substance.

Slave 2 Nothing is supported primarily through donor contributions and internal fundraising activities sponsored by In-N-Out Burger. In addition, In-N-Out Burger pays all costs associated with Slave 2 Nothing, so that every penny raised goes directly to educating and eliminating human trafficking and supporting substance abuse treatment and prevention services.

What We Do

Our goal is to bring awareness to these issues and to support organizations that make a difference in the lives of those struggling to free themselves from human trafficking and substance abuse. To do this, we’re going to support with two different types of organizations:

  • Those who focus on eliminating human trafficking through education, rescue, justice, and support.
  • Those who focus on eliminating substance abuse through prevention, treatment, and support for any person enslaved to a substance, as well as support their families.

We believe that together, we can help improve the lives of the thousands of people who become enslaved in human trafficking and/or substance every year.
