About the Name

Fans of soccer (called football outside the USA) know that when a player commits a serious infraction of the rules, such as a flagrant foul, the referee will hold up a red card to indicate that the player is expelled from the game. Go to YouTube to see some visual examples.

Kids at risk around the world need referees like us to be a voice for them, to call a halt to their unacceptable situations. So in effect we are stepping in to issue a red card. Together, let’s hold up the red card against the oppression of children and begin to offer help and hope to children at risk.
