J&J Manager Raises Money To Fight Human Trafficking Via CaringCrowd
CaringCrowd.org, by Johnson & Johnson Global Public Health, is a sponsor of the Your Mark on the World Center and GoodCrowd.info.
Generous by nature and raised in a vulnerable circumstance, Elisa Torres, now a marketing manager at J&J’s Ethicon, is passionate about ending human trafficking. Recently, she raised money for A21 Campaign, a nonprofit that rescues women from slavery, using CaringCrowd, J&J’s global health crowdfunding platform.
By making human trafficking more difficult, profit margins are squeezed and perpetrators are encouraged to move on to other endeavors with less damage to human beings.
Elisa raised a total of more than $15,000 for the nonprofit using CaringCrowd in two separate campaigns. The site is easy to use and she notes that J&J matched virtually the donations in her campaigns, doubling her impact.
Anyone can use the CaringCrowd crowdfunding site for nonprofit fundraising for any global public health project. Johnson & Johnson frequently matches individual donations up to $250.
