Noting the impact that Daddy Issues will have on the cause, the Hidden Tears team noted:

Although this is a deeply delicate, personal and emotional issue, we know that by presenting highly entertaining, inspiring, and innovative content to our audiences, it will encourage people to see human trafficking as an undeniable reality that can only be resolved with the power of many.”

The campaign is set to close at the end of February. The project is under flexible funding and will receive funds even if it does not reach its funding goal. Daddy Issues will be filmed on location in Chicago February 27th & 28th.
