“Time magazine recently published its list of the world’s one hundred most influential people……For the majority of those listed, however, I suspect that their fame is their influence. In other words, influence becomes less about the one acted upon and more a reflection of an individual. Persons are deemed “influential” because they amassed vast monetary resources or media empires, held political power or oversight. Most names on the list are cultural icons of one sort or another whose influence is at best mercurial; like shooting stars their light is seen and then just as quickly fades from sight.
In contrast to the mercurial and famous influencers, there were some individuals listed that very few people would know. Had influence been determined by a vote, I suspect that most readers of Time magazine would not have deemed them influential…….
Somaly Mam was sold into the sex trade at age 12 and for over a decade suffered at the hands of her abusers. As an adult, having escaped from her captors and having every opportunity to make a new life for herself, Mam instead returned to Cambodia to try and save others who are still enslaved. She has suffered death threats and her own daughter was raped in retaliation for her efforts to shut down the brothels in which young girls lose their lives daily.
In our society, influence generally indicates power over others–power that inevitably reflects back on the one who is influencing. But for individuals like Somaly Mam, influence has very little to do with her own glory. Her influence is characterized by serving others. Indeed, her influence is not about making a name for herself, but rather about lifting up those without names and faces who have no influence, and who most of the world will never know: victims of the sex trafficking industry. Offering her life in this way opens up the possibility of creating lasting influence in the lives of the world’s least influential.”
In a tiny way, our new range of Bugaloo soft-sole leather baby shoes helps in the fight against child slavery. 5% of every purchase of Bugaloo shoes is donated to the International Justice Mission, an agency that secures justice for victims of slavery.
