Fireflies for Morgan Sterling Silver Mason Jar pendant fundraiser

logo

IMG_6423_largeSo this is one of the most meaningful pieces of jewelry I have ever made!! My very good friend Colleen Nick’s beautiful daughter Morgan went missing when she was kidnapped at the age of 6 from a Little League field where she was chasing fireflies with a group of kids while the parents were just steps away. She has been missing for 21 years. I created this beautiful pendant to help keep the hope alive that Morgan will be recovered soon. Catching fireflies is such an iconic childhood joy! A portion of every sale will go to the Morgan Nick Foundation in Arkansas, which helps families everyday with missing persons cases and community education. http://morgannickfoundation.com/

: About the Child ID App

You’re shopping at the mall with your children when one of them suddenly disappears. A quick search of the nearby area is unsuccessful. What do you do?
child id app in hand 300Now there’s a new tool from the FBI that can help. Our just launched Child ID app—the first mobile application created by the FBI—provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about your children so that it’s literally right at hand if you need it. You can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, you can also quickly and easily e-mail the information to authorities with a few clicks. There is no charge for the app.
The app also includes tips on keeping children safe as well as specific guidance on what to do in those first few crucial hours after a child goes missing.

We encourage you to share the word about this app with family and friends, especially during upcoming activities in your communities to raise awareness on crime and drug prevention. For its part, the FBI is working to publicize the app with the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA)—its long-time partner in the National Child Identification Program, which provides a physical kit to gather your child’s pictures, fingerprints, personal characteristics, and even DNA to keep with you in case of emergency. The AFCA is producing a public service announcement about the app and will spread the word at various football games during the upcoming season.Child app screenshots

Right now, the Child ID app is only available for use on iPhones and can only be downloaded for free from the App Store on iTunes, but we plan to expand this tool to other types of mobile devices in the near future. And we’ll be adding new features—including the ability to upload other photos stored on your smart phone—in the coming weeks and months.Child ID app poster


An important note:
the FBI (and iTunes for that matter) is not collecting or storing any photos or information that you enter in the app. All data resides solely on your mobile device unless you need to send it to authorities. Please read your mobile provider’s terms of service for information about the security of applications stored on your device.

Put your child’s safety in your own hands. Download the FBI’s Child ID app today.

Second Annual Ride 4 Their Lives a Success!

The second annual Ride 4 Their Lives bicycle event was held on May 20th, 2011. More than 50 riders showed up despite some rain, to make a difference in the lives of children.

Children anxiously awaited their arrival at each school, cheering them on with messages of hope and perseverance to finish the ride. The cyclists in return spent some time with the kids to reinforce the empowering safety information that was presented to them in the weeks preceding the event. To round out the fun, the Jambulance along with the DJ guy provided music, dancing and fun at all of the stops.

The event ended with a picnic lunch for all of these heroes that took time out of their day to show the community that child safety matters to them.
