BOISE, Idaho (PRWEB) March 13, 2006
Rob Stevenson, former IS manager and professional support services provider for mortgage and escrow industries, has been awarded the exclusive DIGIKIDS® child ID franchise for the State of Idaho, 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.
“Even though I’ve operated my own business for 11 years, I’ve often sought an opportunity to establish a home-based business that would provide income, while allowing me to spend important time with my family. “DIGIKIDS® not only offers me that security and flexibility, but also the chance to provide a valuable service to other parents and contribute positively to the local communities,” explained Stevenson. “A DIGIKIDS® franchise offers the best of both worlds.”
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.
“We are proud to welcome Rob Stevenson to our fast-growing family of DIGIKIDS® franchisees,” said Michael Childs. “His passion for providing for his family, as he works to enhance the safety of the friendly, caring community in which they live, makes him the ideal representative for our company.”
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 vehicle for giving back to the local community or its employees.
