Eternal Threads founder, Linda Egle had been working with women in extreme poverty for years, but learning about the enormity of the problem of sex trafficking, she wanted to get involved. Soon after, Linda met our future partner in Nepal who had established an anti-trafficking organization. His goal was to stop girls from being trafficked into brothels in India and provide a safe place for victims to live and heal. They formed a partnership and began to work together to put an end to trafficking of Nepalese girls.
In 2010 Brittany Partridge, an Abilene Christian University student who had been volunteering at Eternal Threads, approached Linda with an idea for the Red Thread Movement. Her passion was to create a movement that would raise awareness about trafficking and also help fund the work that Eternal Threads was doing to save girls in Nepal.
The idea of the Red Thread bracelet was born. The concept was simple…the girls living in the safe house in Nepal would make the bracelets and this would accomplish three goals:
- Making the bracelets provides employment for rescued girls in the safe house in Nepal.
- The sale of bracelets helps fund the safe house that welcomes them.
- Wearing the red bracelet creates awareness of sex trafficking worldwide.
