Raising awareness about the dangers of Celebratory Gunfire.
A few minutes into the new year, on January 1, 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 came from up to 1.5 miles away. Diego was rushed to the hospital, where he spent many months in intensive care. After multiple surgeries, medical procedures, and therapy; he's finally back home. Diego still has a long road ahead to a full recovery. With the support of family, old friends and new friends we've made along the way, the Bullet Free Sky awareness campaign was born. The love and support Diego has received from people around the globe has been incredible.

IN THE NEWS
When a gun gets fired into the air, there is no way of knowing where it will land. A bullet can travel up to 3 miles from where they were shot, depending on the caliber of the gun. This is why when a gun gets fired randomly into the air, we are all in danger.
This could have happened to anyone of us. Together, we can make a difference.
