When Sam Solakyan, CEO of Global Holdings, happened upon an episode of the show “Kidnap and Rescue” on the Discovery Channel, he couldn’t believe what he saw. The program showed a group of people who went on rescue missions to retrieve abducted children who had been kidnapped and sold into slavery.
Sam was both disturbed by the horrific child slavery and amazed by the heroic people who risked their lives to save these poor children. He started researching the search and rescue organization, Project Child Save, and decided to do what he could to help with this great cause.
Sam donated $20,000 to Project Child Save, which resulted in the successful retrieval of 39 kidnapped children. Sam was so thrilled with the news of this accomplishment that he decided to help out even more. Sam donated $100,000 to Project Child Save’s rescue missions and committed himself to join the fight against child pornography and child sex trafficking.
“This is the most heinous, horrible crime I can imagine and I couldn’t put a price tag on how important it is to end this once and for all,” Sam said. “No amount of success in this lifetime is worth it when we live in a world where people sell, rape, torture, exploit and murder children. Can you imagine if it was one of your own?”
The trained operatives at Project Child Save are retired law enforcement agents, veterans, navy seals and retired government agents. They voluntarily risk their lives regularly to save these innocent children without any payment. Their pledge is “If necessary I am prepared to give all of my tomorrows for one child’s today.”
