A message on behalf of The Untouchable DJ Drastic:

“Loren Medina of Sony BMG Latin recently reached out to me to assist in furthering the awareness of a national non-profit organization called, Stand Up for Kids. The organization was founded in 1990 to help troubled youth across the country. I am in full support of this organization. I look forward to assisting in a more hands on approach within the forthcoming months.”

The Figures of Youth Homelessness:

• 27% of the homeless population are children, the fastest growing segment.
• 36% of all homeless children have been on the streets for more than 3 years.
• 50% of all homeless children are still under the age of 15.
• 1.3 million – 2.8 million is the number of youth living on the streets each day. If counted as a single block they would rank among the top 10 most populated cities in the U.S.A.
• 1 in 7 is the number of children between the ages of 10 & 18 that will run away at least once.
• 13 homeless children die on the streets everyday [approximately 5,000 deaths a year].
• Domestic violence, sexual orientation, sexual abuse, incest, and poverty are the main reasons that children run away from home.
