What did you do at 11 years old?

I got some of these sobering statistics from Love146. But these are not just numbers, these are children. Don't let your heart be numb with these numbers, join Love146 and help these children out of the pain they are in. What did you do at 11 years old?

The average age of entry for girls and boys ranges from 11-14
(Ernie Allen, President & CEO, NECMEC, July 21, 2009).

Astonishingly, with in the first 48 hours of being on the steet, 1 in 3 children are lured into prostitution.
(National Incidence Studies of Missing, Abducted, Runaway, and Thrownaway Children/NISMART-2)

According to ECPAT (End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes), as many as 100,000 U.S. children are forcefully engaged in prostitution or pornography each year. Approximately 300,000 U.S. children
are at-risk.

Pray for these children. Pray that God would change their hearts. Pray for Love146. Pray as they rescue these children from this desperation.
