The world wide web can be a very dark place. We must always be vigilant when it comes to protecting not only ourselves, but also our precious children. Cybersex crimes against children are more prevalent than you think, and a relatively new trend is victimizing kids worldwide--Child Sex Tourism. But one charitable organization has found a way to curb and catch child predators virtually.

Her name is 'Sweetie.' Her sole job is to attract pedophiles. And when she's logged on, the scum of the earth swarm in by the hundreds. In a short amount of time, Terre des Hommes can gather all kinds of information and locations of the predators.
