We are now done catching these people online. That was Phase 1.
Phase 2 (which will start Mid-June 2020) includes an online course (5 weeks) that will teach others about how to effectively and safely catch online predators. Phase 3 will begin in late 2020 (pending covid restrictions) will be a North American tour (talks, rallies, protests and more) to support real changes.
The money from this fundraiser will be used exclusively to make serious changes and we will be starting/completing a 10-15 city tour across North America in an attempt to raise awareness, talk about our experiences (show in-person demonstrations of how easy it is for kids to get online and for adults to start chatting with them) and most importantly, further a hardcopy petition which will be served on the Governments of Canada and the United States (along with large corporations like Google, Apple, Facebook, dating conglomerates like Match Group Inc. and others) so that real changes can be made.
What's at the core of the changes we propose? All social media sites implement immediate age/ID verification so that adults can be prevented in chatting with unknown kids online. This could have profound effects online including but not limited to online accountability.
The money from this fundraiser will be used exclusively for Phase 3 only to support travel costs, venue rentals & marketing. Any excess funds will be donated to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and other reputable causes.
