Hi, I'm Dr. Lois Lee. 'm the Founder and the President if Children of the Night. Children of the Night is a social service agency that is dedicated to rescuing America's children from the rvages f prostitution. Since 1979, I've rescued over 10,000 American Children from prostitution right here in the United States. That's more children in all the sex trafficking organization combined. We do this through a 24 hour sex rafficking hotline, the largest in America that rescues thousands of children from the streets each year. Children of the Night is the only place in North America where child can call from a motel room or city truck stop and reach out and reach a skilled child care worker 24/7 where can organize a police officer to go out and rescue her from the situation, take her to an airport. We pay or her airline ticket, we meet her at LAX and bring her to the Children of the Night home within 24 hours call for help. There's no place elsewhere in North America that that can be done. I'm dedicated to this work because no one else is. Helping children escape prostitution is dirty work and it's hardwork. Oftentimes, it means sitting on the floor combing bugs out of a child's head. I can't do the work do without people like you who are willing to help me. I don't take a lot of breaks. I don't get a lot of time off from work because I'm On Call 24/7 no matter where I am in the world. But when I do take that break, my life changes. I typically take that break in a ski resort riding in a lift chair overlooking the mountains, smelling the fresh air and thinking and pausing and analyzing where I'm going to go work next. I've spent my lfe rescuing American children from prostitution and now I plan to help people, children, women, boys, girls throughout the world.
