To celebrate #GivingTuesday, SoulPancake released their YouTube Original documentary “The Price of Free” and raised $200,000 to eradicate child sex trafficking.
SoulPancake is shining a light on the child labor and trafficking industry in hopes of eradicating the issue. Their documentary, “The Price of Free”, won the U.S. Documentary Grand Jury Prize at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival before being acquired by YouTube. The film, directed by Derek Doneen, features activist and Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi sharing the stories of children who have been rescued. Aside from survivors, he also speaks with family members and community residents who have been affected. “The Price of Free” is an honest look at the grim realities of child trafficking.
The heartbreaking film has helped raise funds toward a $200,000 donation goal that will be given to Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation. Kailash’s organization works toward the prevention of exploitation and violence against children. In his time as an activist, he’s rescued over 87,000 children and counting.
