The reality of child abduction and exploitation isn't something we as a society can afford to ignore any longer.
Glendale, CA (PRWEB) July 09, 2013
Global Holdings, Inc. today announced that CEO Sam Solakyan recently donated one hundred thousand dollars to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). Solakyan was invited to attend the NCMEC’s 11th annual Hope Awards gala in Washington, D.C. this past May.
“This cause is something that I am very passionate about,” said Solakyan. “The reality of child abduction and exploitation isn’t something we as a society can afford to ignore any longer. The destruction wrought by even a single abduction is unfathomable. It’s affecting thousands—if not millions—the world over.”
Founded in 1984, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children serves as the premier resource for all things pertaining to the abduction and exploitation of missing children. Their innovations in the areas of online tips and phone hotlines have processed millions of reports, and the organization has assisted in the rescue of approximately 185,000 children.
Mr. Solakyan devotes much of his time to related causes working to end human trafficking. He reiterated his unwavering commitment to the organization’s credo, and stated he believes significant progress is within reach: “The bottom line is that NCMEC gives me and others hope because it just shows you that there are wonderful people in this world who are incredibly organized and are out there doing something to help these families and their kids. We can make a difference with respect to child abductions and exploitation, but it’s going to take a concerted effort from all of us. Everyone is needed.”
