You'll Never Believe How Many Human Trafficking Victims Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore's Organization Helped This Year

You'll Never Believe How Many Human Trafficking Victims Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore's Organization Helped This Year

In a recent interview with the "TODAY" show, Ashton Kutcher opened up about his many current successes as well as his future wishes.

When reflecting on his successes — like releasing part two of his Netflix series, "The Ranch," and awaiting his second child — Kutcher casually dropped one of his many other accomplishments. This one, however, is not just a personal one, but one that affects our world at large.

The initiative, which stemmed from a pledge he made to fight human trafficking, turned into an organization called Thorn — co-founded by his ex-wife Demi Moore — that builds digital tools to fight back against the issue.

"We've identified and recovered over 6,000 trafficking victims this year," Kutcher said on "TODAY," beating Thorn's goal of 5,000 recoveries.

But, Kutcher's next feat? "When Hillary's in office... I'm going to eliminate child pornography from the Internet."
