Always Keep Your Child's Data with You

As attention focuses on the issue of child safety on National Missing Children's Day May 25, DIGIKIDS´┐Ż reminds parents that the most important thing they can do is carry their child's identification information with them at all times.

"If a child is missing, it is the first 20 minutes that matter the most," says Michael J. Childs, founder of DIGIKIDS. "Immediate access to a good photo of the child and an accurate description are critical. If a parent can keep that kind of information close at hand, it is invaluable in helping the authorities do their job and reunite the child with his or her parents." More than 2,200 children are reported to police as lost or missing each day in the United States. All but a few of those children are found safe within hours, but no matter how short a time a child may be missing, it is an agonizing experience for a parent.

That was why Childs founded DIGIKIDS, the onsite child ID company, in 2003. What makes DIGIKIDS different is that it empowers parents in the event their child is missing. The DIGIKIDS child safety CD contains two high-resolution digital photos, along with medical and identifying information about a child.

DIGIKIDS personnel create the CD onsite at schools, churches, or community events. It takes only two minutes to create, and parents are given the only copy of the information. DIGIKIDS keeps none of the child's information in any computer or database, so it can't fall into the wrong hands.

Parents pay only a nominal charge for the DIGIKIDS child safety CD, and at some community events, it can be obtained free, thanks to sponsors' generosity. Also, DIGIKIDS provides detailed instructions on its company website ( for parents who want to create their own child safety CD.

"The most important thing to DIGIKIDS is the safety of children. That's why I started this company and why our franchise partners continue to join us and expand the reach of DIGIKIDS," says Childs. "We developed a system that helps parents take the most effective action as soon as possible to find and recover their children. Instead of panicking in those first minutes, they can put the information they are carrying with them to work, and make a happy ending possible much sooner." About DIGIKIDS Founded in 2003, DIGIKIDS delivers peace of mind with the most advanced and effective child safety ID available today. The company's representatives create a CD and ID card in about two minutes, with the only copy of any of the information given immediately to the parents. The CD contains photos of the child, physical description and medical information that is vital in an emergency.
