This football season, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, and Adrian Peterson are asking you to join them in raising money for programs to support at-risk kids. Check out www.facebook.com/dnafoundation for new prize announcements!
The money raised through Football for Good will go directly to All Day Foundation and DNA Foundation programs that support youth, help them build self esteem, stay healthy, stay out of gangs and reduce their risk of falling prey to trafficking.
Some key facts about children:
-Currently, 16.4 million or approximately 22 percent of children in the U.S., live in poverty.
-Every 8 seconds, a high school student drops out
-A child is abused or neglected every 42 seconds
-Every two minutes a child enters foster care
-It is estimated that more than one million kids are currently homeless
-Within 48 hours of leaving home, an adolescent is likely to be approached to participate in a form of commercial sexual exploitation. Traffickers target these homeless children because they are often vulnerable and desperate.
