Free and Crowned is this amazing company that was started up by Chief Designer, Daira Curran who had a love for designer headbands.
However this company wouldn’t be as noteworthy if it wasn’t for her interest in playing her part of the truth that is human trafficking.
Important things to note in regards to human trafficking?
27+ million people sold into human trafficking, with the average age of a victim being just 12 years old.
Thankfully, just her simple acknowledgement of the problem wasn’t enough for her because she wanted to do more when she came up with the amazing idea that would soon become Free and Crowned.
What was this idea exactly?
“-She would design and sell headbands where a portion of all the profits went to help free those impacted by this horrible epidemic.” – Found on their ‘Our Story’ page of their website.
Why Free and Crowned exactly? Why this name?
Well to Daira Curren, she believes that each headband symbolizes a girl’s worth and beauty and how they deserve to be treated, which is like a princess.
World-class headbands that solve a world- sized problem.
And now, Free and Crowned works with a promise that 25% of all their proceeds will go to these organizations to help in the epidemic that is Human Trafficking. These proceeds will help these girls realize that they can be princesses now that their chain is broken and they are free.
What are these organizations that these proceeds go to?
