Demi and Ashton back together... for charity!

NEED TO KNOW
  • The couple, who split a year ago, relaunch the Demi and Ashton Foundation as THORN
  • The foundation aims to prevent child trafficking & continue the work of their previous charity
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore may have split, but they are still committed to preventing child trafficking and sexual exploitation.

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher may no longer be together, but the pair are still committed to one cause -- their charity. 

Despite announcing their split almost exactly one year ago, Moore and Kutcher reiterated their support for their charity, which aims to prevent child trafficking and sexual exploitation. They announced that they are renaming their charity, the Demi and Ashton Foundation (which they started in 2009), to THORN: Digital Defenders of Children.

Along with the name change, the foundation's mission statement includes a new technology component to help combat child sexual slavery.

On their new site, the couple states, "Thorn exists to continue the work started by the Demi and Ashton (DNA) Foundation in 2009. We aim to disrupt and deflate the predatory behavior of those who abuse and traffic children, solicit sex with children or create and share child pornography. As these crimes are increasingly facilitated by technology, we invest in and deploy the latest technology as part of our ongoing fight to end child sexual exploitation."

Moore and Kutcher announced their split late last year after nearly six years of marriage amidst rumors of Kutcher's infidelity. Although Kutcher has recently been linked to his former "That 70s Show" co-star Mila Kunis, Moore and Kutcher have yet to actually file divorce papers.
