Frequently Asked Questions...

No. None of Ty's team is paid for their work. The families of the missing children pay for the expenses only. At times we have to help them meet the costs. There are many more children in sexual slavery than we can help at this time. We accept cases based on the probability of success and the availability of resources. We do this in an effort to recover as many children as possible. Many highly qualified individuals offer to accompany Ty on his recoveries at no charge. Because of the very real risks involved, few are selected. These risks are not just to the team members, but also to the children themselves. We do everything possible to minimize those risks. All of Ty's team members, no matter their background and qualifications, undergo intensive training under Ty's direction. This is necessary to keep the team acting as a unit under all conditions, maximizing the chances of success.

As you have probably seen on Ty's website,, Ty has been recovering children sold into sexual slavery for over 40 years. During this time neither Ty nor his team members have taken any pay for this. At times they have even contributed financially to make a recovery possible.

Project Child Save is a new non-profit corporation, and a lifelong dream of Ty's. We have only just started, so there is little that we can provide to you at this time beyond an explanation of our purposes and intentions.

We will be using money raised to teach parents how to keep their children safer and assist when families can't find the money for the expenses of a recovery. We don't take pay, but we need someone to pay the expenses.

We will use donations to help us keep our training costs down. It costs around $20,000 to fully train one man. These men are normally charged $5,000 of the training cost. Ty is very proud of the fact that his team members pay for the privilege of bringing children thought lost forever home.

There are many day-to-day expenses, like phone and computer lines. We are covering these with donations as much as possible, but in some cases we have to pay for or reimburse these expenses.

We are in need of office and field equipment, but are trying to have that donated.

There are the costs of the investigations. We have a large group of licensed private investigators and other investigative professionals who volunteer their time and expertise. Most of the cost is absorbed by our volunteers as individuals, but we do on occasion need to reimburse larger amounts, such as those paid to informants.

We have spoken to companies that raise funds for charity, but have rejected them because they take too large a percentage.

To date, the only money Project Child Save has spent has been for phone services, and to reimburse a few hundred dollars in expenses.

We feel that the money intended by donors to recover children should go toward that purpose alone, as much as is possible. To date, no one involved in Project Child Save, including Ty, has taken a salary. Our intention is to keep it that way as much as is humanly possible.

Ty is very conscious of every dollar spent. He reminds us constantly that each dollar we bring in and hold on to brings us one step closer to bringing home another child.

The cost of rescuing an abducted child can easily run into hundreds of thousands of dollars. Equipment, information, even bribes have to be paid for, and none of these things come cheaply. Training for security personnel can also be expensive. Your donations make it possible for us to increase public awareness about child pornography and sexual slavery, train security professionals so they can be more effective at prevention, or, when all else fails, to seek out and rescue children who have been kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery. There is a secure donation site accepting most forms of payment on the Project Child Save website, If you prefer you may donate by phone at 8-PROTECT-911, or mail a check to:
