Craig has traveled the world talking to children who are forced to live and work in desperately poor conditions. During his first trip to India, he met children who worked 12 hours a day in a brick kiln and never had the chance to attend school.

Craig also visited with an eight-year-old girl whose job was to sort through used syringes and needles in a recycling factory. The needles came from hospitals that treated drug addicts. The girl had never heard of AIDS, but said she had pricked herself many times on the used needles.

In the Philippines, Craig talked to an eight-year-old boy who had never set foot outside the trash dump where he was born and works all day, every day. Craig says, "The only thing I can promise the kids who I meet is that I will take their stories and I will tell them to anyone who is willing to listen."
