Who we are

Bullet Free Sky is an awareness effort to educate the public and spread the word

on the dangers of Celebratory Gunfire.

During the 2012 New Year celebration, a stray bullet struck a family member, Diego Duran,

in the head. He was only 12 years old when this happened. Family and friends have

since made an effort to create awareness to prevent this dangerous practice.

We are an awareness effort to educate the public and spread the word on the dangers of Celebratory Gunfire.

We invite you

To educate people and participate in this effort, by creating awareness on the dangers of Celebratory Gunfire. We all celebrate under the same sky,

and this affects us all.

*Bullet Free Sky is not an anti-gun organization.

We are for gun safety and common sense, because

What goes up, must come down!

Our goal is promoting awareness, in order to keep something (so preventable) from happening

to anyone else. The reality is that when someone shoots randomly into the sky,

we are all in danger.

Our Story

A few minutes into the new year, on January 1st, 2012 - Diego Duran, a 12-year-old boy from Ruskin, Florida- was struck in the head by a stray bullet while watching fireworks from his own front yard. Investigators concluded the .45 caliber bullet may have traveled up to 1.5 miles, according to experts.

Diego was rushed to the hospital, where he spent months in intensive care. After multiple surgeries, medical procedures, and therapy; he was able to go home. Diego made it through school with a special program and much determination. He graduated high school and became an auto technician. To this day, Diego has a permanent shunt to drain fluids from his brain.

With the support of family, old friends and new, the Bullet Free Sky awareness campaign was born. Diego continues receiving encouragement from people around the globe.

We hope to inspire others to make a difference through education and awareness. We also wish to honor the memory of celebratory gunfire victims. Please visit our victims page for more information.

Together we can make a difference, and help stop celebratory gunfire.
