In response to the more than 2,000 missing children reported in the United States each day, 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.
June 04, 2008 // Franchising.com // HOUSTON, Texas - Dolores Spratt has been selected to launch the exclusive DIGIKIDS® child ID franchise for Montgomery, Texas, Montgomery County and the neighboring North Houston 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.
"For 15 years, I was employed with a mining and construction company in South Africa," Spratt said. "Raising four daughters while working in a third-world country, I became keenly aware of the vital importance of a quick response.
"Sadly, when children were lost or abducted there, no resource like DIGIKIDS® was available. But when children are missing - anywhere - every second counts."
DIGIKIDS® delivers and ensures complete privacy - no database is created, and everything provided by the service 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?" she continued.
Before moving to Montgomery two years ago and prior to her time in South Africa, Dolores Spratt was a REALTOR® in Columbia, Missouri. She has seven grandchildren.
"In making my decision, I conducted thorough research, comparing child safety and identification programs - I'm convinced that DIGIKIDS® far surpasses all the rest."
Years in development, DIGIKIDS® is the most advanced and effective child safety ID program available today.
"My youngest daughter graduated from college this year, so I'm ready, and have the time and energy, to do something that can make a difference in the lives of children and families, and for me DIGIKIDS® can make that difference," Spratt explained.
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.
"Believing passionately that children must be protected, Dolores Spratt is an excellent representative for DIGIKIDS® services," said Childs. "We are proud to welcome her to the growing family of dedicated DIGIKIDS® franchisees."
