Nearly five children die everyday as a result of child abuse.*
One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday.**
160,000 children are afraid to go to school each day for fear of being bullied.
Every 7 minutes a child is bullied on a playground.
Florida is the 3rd highest ranked state in the U.S. for human trafficking.
