We exist to fight human trafficking through helping raise awareness, prevention & aftercare.

Our product line not only empowers people to Carry the Cause and raise awareness, but it also funds our anti-trafficking work as every product is connected to impact levels ranging from awareness efforts, to youth education, to survivor aftercare and empowerment.

Eye Heart World was born in 2010 when Brian and Season Russo decided to take action against human trafficking in an innovative way. For the first awareness event they organized, Season and her mother, Denise Foster, created 30 bags, hoping to raise funds for a safe home in their community. Supporting the cause in a tangible way proved to be contagious - every single bag was sold that day. Since it’s inception, Eye Heart World has sold thousands of products; educated over 20,000 individuals and raised over $100,000 to fund the fight against Human Trafficking.

Now, based in Green Bay, WI, Eye Heart World works directly with survivors of trafficking in the (920), providing essential resources and facilitating the healing process.

What is the Orange Rose?

When the first Eye Heart World handbags were created, we set out to make a statement that would shine a light on the plight of millions around the world. We placed a symbolic orange rose on all of our handbags that represents the delicate and unique individual lives of those who are exploited. Each life deserves freedom - so when it's in your hand or on your shoulder, you don't just carry a bag, you Carry the Cause.

Community Partners

Eye Heart World is grateful for the ongoing support of our dedicated community partners. We could not continue our efforts in the fight against human trafficking without their generous donations, acts of service and outstanding business partnerships.
