Celebrities and Athletes Support ‘Football for Good’
Football season is here and with it comes a great ménage a trios: Adrian Peterson, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.
The triage of do-gooders have partnered up via their foundations to raise awareness and bring an end to child sex trafficking.
NFL stud Adrian Peterson and his ‘All Day Foundation’ along with Demi and Ashton’s DNA Foundation, have officially kicked off their ‘Football for Give’ initiative on Crowdrise, with a ‘goal 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.
