Children of the Night and IOION: Partners in the Fight Against Human Trafficking.

Los Angeles, CA, December 07, 2010 --( Human Trafficking has seen a 109% increase from 1996-2000 and has not declined. Half of all human trafficking victims in the world are under the age of 18. This holiday season there are families affected by runaway children, broken homes and seeming hopelessness. Children of the Night is dedicated to bringing children victims of human trafficking home or getting them shelter. IOION, a colorful Italian sport watch company, is teaming up with Children of The Night to help children off the streets and home for the holidays. IOION joins the campaign with their Glow-in-the-dark watches. For the holiday season IOION will donate 50% of all online purchases of the Glow-in-the-dark IOIONS to Children of the Night. This partnership will help COTN continue to provide a 24 hour hotline for children in need, and COTN provides a plane ticket home to any child in need from any location in the United States, or houses them in their 24-bed shelter. IOION's partnership is long term, as they will continue to support COTN with 25% of all online GLOW purchases year round.
