Missing Children and Take 25 Campaign

May 25th is National Missing Children’s Day . Events are being scheduled across the country to raise awareness about the importance of safety and as a reminder of our nation’s missing children . The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s Take 25 Campaign asks parents to take 25 minutes of their day to talk to your kids about safety.

National Missing Children’s Day is around the corner. It’s a perfect opportunity for law enforcement, public servants, advocates and volunteers to give back to the community. We all know violent crime (kidnappings, sexual assault, car jacking, murder) are a daily occurrence. Every day thousands of children are reported missing. Many are never found. Many of the kidnappings/abductions end tragically in rape, assault and death.

I’m pleased to announce that we will be hosting one of these events for the 2nd year anniversary of Lilly Aramburo’s disappearance, to coincide with National Missing Children’s Day in South Florida. Lilly went missing June 1, 2007 from Miami, FL. She is still missing. More about Lilly Aramburo.

More information about the upcoming safety awareness event coming soon. If you’d like to help out with the organizing/promoting of this event, please contact me or leave a comment on this post (or any post). If you’re a family member of a missing person and would like your loved one featured on our missing persons wall, please contact me or leave a comment. We’d like to partner up with local residents who care about the safety of our children and loved ones, as well as any like-minded organizations. Together we can make a difference.
