The following are statistics from Make Way Partners for your information:

Human Trafficking Statistics
Make Way Partners, January 2008

-There are at least 30 million victims of modern day slavery in the world today (US Trafficking in Persons Report).

-Each year it is estimated that there are 1 million new victims of human trafficking (The US Department of State).

-Estimates as high as 80% of trafficking victims are women and over - 50% in slavery are children (US Government).

-Human Trafficking generates approximately $9.5 billion each year. It is second only to drug trafficking in international crime (US Trafficking in Persons Report).

-“…Experts say that at any given time, some 2.5 million people are being trafficked …” (http://www.makewaypartners.org/effects.html)

-The USA is the number one country of destination for trafficked victims. The land of the free and the brave has become the receiving country for sex-slaves and forced manual workers. Run-away or kidnapped children are also sold and exploited within our borders and Internet child pornography or solicitation is thriving. (http://www.makewaypartners.org/effects.html)

-A child goes missing every 40 seconds in the USA.
That is more than 2,000 a day and more than 800,000 every year.
Another estimated 500,000 disappear without being reported.
For most, these bodies are never found.
What happens to them? (National Center for Missing and Exploited Children)

-Rising tide of human trafficking by Americans against other Americans - between 1.3 and 2.8 million runaways and homeless youths living on America's streets are one of the most at risk populations for exploitation. (PR Newswire)

-1 in 7 teenagers in the USA run away from home. Living on the streets, one out of every three teens will be lured into prostitution within 48 hours of leaving home. And the longer they are gone, the more likely they are to engage in "survival sex." After three months away from home, 90 percent of children will turn to sex. (National Incidence Studies of Missing, Runaway and Throwaway Children)

All of these statistics are from May Way Partners, January 16, 2008

Cheap louboutin shoes and Yves Saint Laurent are two brands synonymous with luxury.
Both are fabulous in their own right and very coveted by women all over the world including the most famous of celebrities.
So why would YSL blatantly take Christian Louboutin shoes‘s signature red sole and put it on their shoes?
In my opinion, if YSL was trying to take on the genious of the red sole and apply it to their line, maybe a good suggestion could be a different color?
Yves Saint Laurent has already dabbled with this idea using the very vibrant color yellow and I like it!
It definitely gives the Christian Louboutin sale a certain trendy style that resembles that of Christian Louboutin’s signature look.

Like the best Emst Lubitsch film, the nineteenth century Passage Vero-Dodat has had its share of romance, humour and intrigue (with many smoke signals emanating from the Galerie du Passage!!) And joining the cozy throng 7's Cordonnerie.

Should you worship, destroy or just relish slurping bubbly from your Christian louboutin shoes - the Cordonneris is for you. Slip in, soak up the pale pistachio painted walls,1930s silver lamos, Acacia shoe bar and either splurge on the special edition creams, horse hair brushed and non-gas sprays or sink onto a stool and watch Minuit Moins 7's elves perform their magic.

Aren't you just a teensy bit 'jelly bean' envious that girls can flash red cheap louboutin shoes but not you? Well, no longer!With so many Red Sole Christian louboutin shoes sisters out there, the good news is that the Red Sole brothers are beginning to beef up the brethren. Their shoe of choice? Why the 'Rollerboy,' 'Rantus' and the 'Nono.' As you might have guessed, the intense color and design are up there. As is the ' intense ' comfort.
