BRADENTON, Florida (PRWEB) March 9, 2006
Jennifer Godfrey, homemaker, mother and retail administrative support assistant, has been awarded the exclusive DIGIKIDS® child ID franchise for the entire Manatee County area, announced Michael J. Childs, 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.
“I was looking for a franchise opportunity to develop, operate and maintain a home-based business that would be rewarding and satisfying, as well as profitable. DIGIKIDS® not only offers me that opportunity but also the chance to help parents like me with a valuable service that I can really believe in,” said Godfrey. “I feel DIGIKIDS is the perfect fit for the growing community in which we live.”
Godfrey has been recognized by her longtime employer with numerous accolades for her energy and contribution, including three times for the prestigious “Florida’s Leading Achiever” award.
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. The cost to enroll each child is only $15.95.
“Jennifer Godfrey represents the ideal person to endorse and support our services,” said Michael Childs. “We are proud to welcome her to the growing DIGIKIDS® family of franchisees.”
According to the NCMEC, acting within the first 20 minutes of a child’s disappearance is critical. By using the easily carried business card-sized CD ROM, parents are equipped to distribute pre-formatted flyers and posters, complete with high-resolution photos and last-minute identifying details, anywhere in the world via internet e-mail.
“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 with the first few hours immediately following a child’s disappearance,” explains John Walsh, founder of NCMEC.
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.
Beyond typical child identity programs that provide only an ID card, the DIGIKIDS® CD enables parents to make a speedy and comprehensive worldwide distribution of critical identifying information using any PC with a CD-ROM drive. Each emergency e-mail and attachments are sent through a dedicated, secure network. DIGIKIDS® does not create or maintain a central database, guaranteeing security and privacy.
Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, DIGIKIDS® presents and supports its services nationally through independent franchisees. In addition to schools and preschools, 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.
