protect kids

My friend Sandy has one of the toughest jobs I know. Not only is she mom to two boys under age 4, she also works at Kristi House, an organization in Miami that works to help children who are victims of sexual abuse. Her specific job is to to help CSEC's, Commercially Sexually Exploited Children. In other words, children who are prostitutes, or whose bodies are used in pornography, or who are otherwise sexually exploited.

Sandy writes a great blog about the issues facing CSEC's and the prevalence of this problem in our society (Did you know, for example, that Atlanta has more child sex workers than any other city in America?). Check it out, get informed, consider making a donation to Kristi House or to other organizations working to protect children in your city, and help make a difference in these children's lives.

Are you going to put this up on I2A next week? This fits perfectly under the abuse theme, I think. Get you're friend to talk a little about Kristi House as a resource for the abused - I would love to read more.

Thanks for the link to her blog.

Hey, E, I'm supposed to be writing about the National Domestic Violence hotline, but I can definitely do something else on Kristi House. I'll talk to Sandy and see what she can send us.
