Albany -- Every year, almost 5,000 children are abducted by strangers. But Kinder Vision and WALB is trying to change all that.

Kinder Vision is a nonprofit group that works to educate children and parents about the danger of strangers through a personalized video program. The video shows kids what to do if a confronted by a stranger.

"I realized that ID programs with finger printing, snap shots and video footage while they are well intentioned -- do nothing to protect children from harm. What was needed was  a resource that parents could use in the homes to teach their children to be safe," says Douglas Sebastian founder of Kinder Vision.

Kinder Vision is holding an event on April 10th at the Albany YMCA. Parents can receive free videos and information about child safety.
