Adrian Peterson Teams With Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore To Fight Human Trafficking

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 24, 2011 – 10:37 am

There are so many good things to say about Adrian Peterson the football player. There are just as many good things to say about Adrian Peterson the person. I tell people all the time that Peterson is the best at being a superstar that I’ve ever seen. No one signs more autographs than Peterson, and he always does it with a smile. He never seems bothered by the attention or the demands of his time that the attention brings.

The latest example of Peterson’s tremendous and positive impact on others is his work with Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore to launch “Football For Good,” a campaign designed to create widespread awareness and raise funds for community programs for at-risk youth and to fight human trafficking of minors. Peterson and the team of Kutcher and Moore will combine each of their foundations – Peterson’s “All Day Foundation” and Kutcher and Moore’s DNA Foundation – to lead the effort.

Peterson is jumpstarting the fundraising with a personal commitment to donate $5,000 for every touchdown he scores this season. Kutcher/Moore will match that donation and other NFL players have committed various dollar amount donations for every touchdown they score.

“We have to make a huge effort for these at-risk kids. Not only to protect them and build self-esteem, but also to stop the demand side of the sex-trafficking business,” said Peterson. “I worked with Ashton and Demi on their ‘Real Men’ campaign and was inspired by their commitment to the issue of sex-trafficking. It’s a hard issue to talk about, but the fact is – hundreds of thousands of American kids are at-risk of being trafficked. We have to put an end to that. If I can help in any way, I’m game. I encourage my fans to do the same at crowdrise.com/football.”

“Adrian has a huge heart and we’re grateful for his willingness to support programs for at-risk youth and also shine a light on child sex trafficking,” said Ashton Kutcher. “Imagine if we all came together – the football fans, the players and sponsors – the impact we could have on the lives of kids. I can’t wait to see who steps up to the plate to join us at crowdrise.com/football.” 

How Fans Participate/Win Prizes:
• Visit fundraising website Crowdrise –www.crowdrise.com/football to donate, track progress and win prizes.

    I’m glad Adrian is fighting human trafficking.

    Adrian’s next move SHOULD be to request that his
    Defensive Line teammates get their hands up when
    rushing the QB.

    @Shawn,

    To answer an earlier question:

    I’m frustrated with the lack of concern by bloggers over the “sack mentality” of the MN Vikings. We like to rush the passer, that’s okay. It should not be at the expense of h a r r a s s i n g the QB by getting our hands
    IN THE PASSING LANES ! ! ! :( :(

    tHe vIKiNGs WILL NOT BEAT THE LIONS WITH THE

    “ME FIRST” ATTITUDE OF THE DEFENSIVE LINEMEN, WHO ONLY SEEM

    LANES WHEN RUSHING THE QUARTERBACK ! ! !

    Jared Allen did put his hands up at least twice AFTER the 15 yard roughing penalty on him.

    Fred … I sometimes see a blogger with a good thought and say nothing because I figure you got it, Ive been working on this Bernard Berrian problem for 2 years and havent got a resolution yet :)

    Fred … You have successfully recruited many to join you on the OL bandwagon, yet the problem hasnt been resolved yet. You maybe on too something but I dont see it as the weakest link yet and I try to stay focused on the weakest link or 2 or 3 … Im still screaming Berrian and have joined your OL rants ….

    its just too bad nobody listens … I will stay focused on BB and the OL and if AA makes another bad play I will be all over him as well

    I have an idea how to beat Detroit on Sunday. Run AP for three yards on first down, minus 1 yard on second down, throw incomplete to Harvin on third down, punt, make them fumble the punt, recover it and run it in for a touchdown. That way you don’t have to rely on McNabb, or the lousy offense. If you do that every series and the defense just gets one stop in the game…WE WIN!!! LETS DO THAT!!!

    The Ramsey County deal envisions a $407 million contribution from the Vikings, $300 million from the state and $350 million from the county raised through a half-cent increase on the county sales tax.

    At his news conference Thursday, Dayton said the end deal for the stadium is not yet clear. “I can’t ask people to support a deal when I can’t say specifically what it is,” he said.

    “Some questions have been answered. Many have not. But I think a lot of it will be in clear focus on Oct. 15,” he said, when the Met Council and Stadium Commission report on the Arden Hills site is slated to come out.
    Until then, he said, the stadium matter is essentially on hold.

    What is up with Dayton? Looks like the plan is very concrete– some tweaking, but minor for sure. He does not want it. He is concerned about reelection and much of his constituency base is ideologically opposed to spending, unless it is on social programs. Mark my words.

    Or it is more likely Dayton is a Blue sheep grazing on Red soil. So politically he has to maintain a certain hold to Red insanologies err stupidologies err idiotologies …. sheesh 1 more try, ideologies …. that was tough

    Both sides should walk awat from negotiations saying we didnt get everything we wanted but its a fair deal … just the same as the NFL and the NFLPA did

    When one sides leader walks away from a negotiation saying i got 90% of what I wanted which is what Boehner said after the last time Obama caved in … something tells me that both puppets are controlled by the same person

    13 straight doesn’t seem to be realistic after 3 straight losses.

    I am now in your corner on Bernard Berrian, although like you I do not see him as the only problem.

    Joe Webb is clearly one of the top 3 or 4 athletes on the team… it makes no sense to waste him on the bench… they gotta get the ball in his hands at least 5 to 7 times a game… as bad as the secondary is, maybe they should let him play safety… he seems like he’d have great range and instincts back there… he’s gotta be better than pitiful Tyrell Johnson…

    They lose tomorrow, they will likely be winless or at best 2-6 at the Bye. Yes, I said it.

    I am very suprised to see the Thiesman NFL network video posted on this website. Mike Wobby – I hope that wasn’t your call. If I were the Wilfs, Spielman or Frazier I would pull that video and fire whoever posted it. Whoever posted it has some b@lls… but then agian what are the odds of Frazier or Spielman looking at this site?

    McNabb has completed 55% of his attemps for a pedestrian 5.9 yrd avg. and a 71 rating. Many have said he is not the problem… I don’t care if he is or isn’t the problem. I am more concerned with the question, is he the answer or the future? I will know answer after the Lion’s come to visit on Sunday.

    I know Frazier has said this is NOT a must win game. IMO, this is a crossroads games for McNabb and Frazier. This could be the biggest win of Frazier head coaching career. It could take him to 4-5 and it will keep “legitimate” post season hopes alive. A loss will surely put us in a hole “maybe” too deep to climb out.

    This may NOT be a must win… but it is a big game! Good Luck Vikes!

    Chuck Foreman was traded prior to the 1980 season to the New England Patriots and retired after the season was over. Personally I believe he is the second best RB in Vikings history, after AP, no offense Robert Smith, Ted Brown or Rickey Young.

    The Packers defense is terrible, they gave up over 800 passing yards combined in their 2 wins, Ihope Chicago dismantles the cheese men. Packers offense is great, but the defense leaves alot to be desired, they will not even be in the Super Bowl this year.

    along with Gayle Sayers, Chuck Foreman was the most stylish great running back in NFL history… other than Barry Sanders, and maybe Marcus Allen, there’s never been anyone like him since he retired… if he didnt have so much wear and tear on him from his prime years he probably would have had a longer and more decorated career… he CARRIED Fran Tarkenton… in both the running and passing game…

    if the Vikings dont score 30+ points, they will lose… either Peterson is gonna have to get 200 yds and 3 TDs, or McCrabb is gonna have to throw for 300 and 3 TDs… might even need a kick return or a defensive TD…

    @ Fred Jones, I am not following what you are talking about with the ‘hands up’ campaign. You make it sound as tho the DL’s need to have their arms and hands up in the air at the split second of snap which would def slow the push/ pass rush. Please provide some examples from other teams after tomorrow’s games

    As the week has progressed and all the negativity on Vikings from me, I kinda feel Vikings are going to win but close though.

    Mcnabb has to stop hating the turf and start throwing at wide open Shiancoe and WR’s except Berrian as NFL Network exposed this week, I think Vikings are going to win 24 – 17. Berrian I hope you are hurt the 1st play.

    I am from TN I hate Titans, so I am all set with some beer and some spicy Indian chicken. It’s going to be a good Sunday with Vikings beating lions and Bears beating GB.

    @sandiamond,

    When a defensive lineman or linebacker rushes the QB, he will of
    course look to sack him. Often he can see that the QB is ready to pass,
    and the DL or LB is not going to be able to sack him.

    It is at that moment that the defensive lineman can do the TEAM a favor
    by getting his hands up to distract the QB, or knock the ball down.

    Do you understand what I mean now?

    @Nova,

    The Vikings must win this one. I might be grabbing at straws a little with hands up bit. But if they can’t pressure the passer, we cannot win.

    Be positive…

    We will put pressure on the quarterback, even if it means getting our hands in the passing lanes ! ! !

    Keys to winning the game? Well, all Stafford has to do is hit CJ early and often and watch him stroll in for TDs. On defense, all they have to do is have Suh eat McNabb…. viola (that’s French for… well, for… just-like-that?)… you have yourself a victory….

    Oh, you wanted to know how the VIKINGS can win this game… hmmm….. err….

    I’ve done the math, and the odds of them winning this game are akin to my odds of winning the New York state lottery…. and I’ve never been to New York. Vikes will come out strong in the first half (I’m really going out on a limb here….), and then fold like a cheap tent after halftime and lose by 10+.

    If this isn’t a must win, then I don’t have much faith in Fraziers ability to lead this squad. I guess as long as you aren’t mathematically eliminated, no game is a must win. I wonder if the Wilfs are starting to eye their phones, thinking of Cowher or some such….

    Oh, just to stay on Wobs point, I think its great and sad that AP and the crew are working on the child sex trafficing problem. Here’s how you can help… commit violent bodily harm on anyone you catch raping children. Usually I’m a proponent of education… on this issue, I’m in favor of eradication…. of the offenders.

    We just need a mob surrounding the stadium with torches and pitchforks… This should motivate them to play through the entire game…

    “….Donovan McNabb, looks uncomfortable in the pocket and unable to throw the ball downfield. His offensive coordinator, Bill Musgrave, seems to be playing drunken checkers while the rest of the league plays speed chess.

    Harvin, the Vikings’ best big-play threat, spends more time on the sideline than Joe Mauer. Bernard Berrian, the Vikings’ lone deep threat and a Frazier pet project, is giving new meaning to the term “fade route.”

    @sandiamond- You can still see Thiesman rip on McNabb under the featured videos section.

    I am not saying that Thiesman is wrong.
    It just seems very odd for the Vikings to post a video like that when Wobby and Frazier have been telling us that McNabb is not the problem and he gives us our best chance to win.

    Maybe the Vikings are ready to move in a new direction? Maybe this is McNabb’s last shot to get’r done?

    @Frederick- I will have my hands up all game just for you! FYI, Jared Allen has 26 career p@ss deflections. He knows how to get his hands up.

    Frederick, you make a valid point, but coaches do harp on the DL to get their hands up and disrupt the p@ssing lanes all the time. It is just easier said than done at the NFL level.

    This is the absolute greatest story I have read about a football player. Not only is it great he is helping to fight human trafficking but he is helping to bring the issue to light. Many people still dont know what a problem this is around the world. And that there are actually more people sold as slaves now then there were before the Civil War. My respect for A.P has increased a lot as well as for Demi and Ashton.

    @Carl K … Your thoughts on the NFL Networks analysis on McNabb are literally insane. Mike Wobs gave us unbiased information which shows his growth as a writer … at least from what Ive learned about writing from Parody and Titus ….

    Holding back the truth is something Dictatorships do … kind of like that dictatorship that told us Pat Tillman died saving his squad
