Programmer Reboots Career with DIGIKIDS® Child ID Franchise

Share Article

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 provide law enforcement officials, the media, the NCMEC and other agencies with two high-resolution digital photos along with medical and identifying information to aid in recovery efforts.

For more than 16 years, Jerry Patrick has used computer technology to design business solutions for others. Not surprisingly, it was also computer technology that helped persuade Patrick to seize a fulfilling business opportunity for himself and his wife Chris through a Child ID franchise called DIGIKIDS®.

“The DIGIKIDS® Child ID Kit really impressed my wife and I, and DIGIKIDS® use of current technology is incredible,” said Patrick, speaking of how DIGIKIDS® enables parents to email and print fliers in such a short timeframe complete with a child's identifying information and last minute details. “As parents of two small children, my wife and I would purchase a DIGIKIDS® Child Safety CD in a heartbeat if it were offered to us,” he added.

According to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, acting within the first 20 minutes following a child's disappearance is absolutely critical. By utilizing the DIGIKIDS® business card-sized CD-ROM (easily carried in a pocket or purse and operates in any PC with a CD-ROM drive), parents are only moments away from distributing pre-formatted flyers and posters – complete with high-resolution photos and last-minute details – anywhere in the world via internet email. “The electronic delivery to law enforcement officials of a child's digitized photo can save crucial time, since the chances of safely recovering a child are much greater within the first few hours immediately following a child abduction,” says John Walsh, founder of the NCMEC (”

Although the service is available through schools, preschools, churches and summer camps, DIGIKIDS® ability to produce the Child ID kits on site in 2 minutes or less affords a perfect opportunity for any local business wishing to sponsor a DIGIKIDS® safety event as a means of giving back to the local community or its employees.

Utilizing patent-pending technology in the making of each Child Safety CD, DIGIKIDS® never creates a database of any kind, and emergency emails and attachments are sent through a dedicated, secure network. Located in Fort Worth, Texas, DIGIKIDS® distributes the product through independent franchisees. Franchise opportunities are available for single or multiple territory development.
