The sign is a concept for a Spanish organization called Aid to Children and Adolescents at Risk, otherwise known by its initials in Spanish, ANAR. The idea is to have an ad that looks, to adults, like an ordinary awareness campaign about child abuse — but to show emergency contact information only to kids.
