In response to the more than 2,200 missing children reported in the United States each day, DIGIKIDS® offers a Child Safety Identification CD that allows parents to quickly provide law enforcement officials, the media, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) and other agencies with two high-resolution digital photos along with medical and identifying information to aid in recovery efforts.
March 03, 2008 // Franchising.com // LAREDO, Texas -- Sara and Eduardo Hinojosa have launched the exclusive DIGIKIDS® child ID franchise for Laredo and the Webb County area, announced Michael J. Childs, DIGIKIDS® president.
DIGIKIDS® offers a child safety CD that allows parents to quickly provide law enforcement officials, the media, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), and other agencies with two high-resolution digital photos along with medical and identifying information to aid in recovery efforts.
"In addition to the personalized, low-pressure response we received, two features sold us on DIGIKIDS®," Sara Hinojosa explained. "First, DIGIKIDS® offers an excellent opportunity to serve our community, its families and children. Second, DIGIKIDS® delivers and ensures complete privacy — no database is created, and everything is assembled and delivered onsite.
"With privacy protection a key concern for everyone these days, how can we expect to earn the trust of parents if we send the personal information they entrust to us to an offsite facility, as other children ID programs routinely do."
For more than 10 years, Sara Hinojosa has been employed with Migrant Head Start programs, witnessing firsthand the sacrifices parents are willing to make to ensure their children's safety and wellbeing.
Offered through schools, preschools, churches, summer camps and other public events, DIGIKIDS® delivers its secure child ID kits on site in two minutes or less. With its patent-pending technology to create each Child Safety CD, DIGIKIDS® offers parents anywhere a secure and efficient tool that can help speed the return of lost or missing children.
"When we discovered DIGIKIDS®, we knew right away that it was a service parents could trust, because it was the one we trusted," Eduardo Hinojosa added.
As an only child, Eduardo Hinojosa has always been keenly aware of the nurturing values of family. Also, with a bachelor of science degreed in computer science and a master's degree in management of information technology, he appreciates the contribution of technology to society.
"Believing passionately that children deserve to grow up safely, Sara and Eduardo Hinojosa are excellent representatives of DIGIKIDS® services," said Michael Childs. "We are proud to welcome them to the growing family of dedicated DIGIKIDS® franchisees."
