This football season, Adrian Peterson’s All Day Foundation is partnering with DNA Foundation, created by Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, to make each touchdown count for more than just points.
Through Football for Good, players and fans are coming together to raise funds and awareness to bring an end to child sex trafficking and support programs that enrich the lives of children around the country. It is estimated that more than 2 million children are victims of sex trafficking around the world. What many people don’t know is that this doesn’t just happen overseas, it happens here at home as well. More than 200,000 American children are at risk of being trafficked. Football for Good works to raise awareness about this issue and gather support for programs that address the needs of some of our country’s most vulnerable youth.
Donate now and join Adrian, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore and players from around the league in raising funds to make a difference in the lives of children, and win great prizes along the way.

About DNA and All Day Foundation
The funds raised will be split equally between the DNA Foundation, which works to end human trafficking, and Peterson’s All Day Foundation, which supports community-based youth enrichment programs for at-risk kids. The DNA Foundation focuses on the root causes of child sex slavery, and will invest the funds in ending the “demand” for the commercial sexual exploitation of children, helping prevent trafficking from taking place online, and supporting survivors. The All Day Foundation supports programs for at-risk youth and will invest the funds in programs with the Texas Advocacy Project, Oklahoma Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Special Olympics and other youth enrichment programs.
