"Candy Kids" was the result of a 6-month investigation into several youth organizations that use children to solicit cash donations in exchange for candy. The I-Team discovered that young children were left alone, vulnerable and frightened, often expected to solicit donations by themselves at night; that young children were, on occasion, lost or left behind; that children were instructed to lie when soliciting donations and that very little of the money went to the children themselves.
