Bossier City, Louisiana (PRWEB) June 22, 2008
John and Peggy Westfall have been selected to launch the exclusive DIGIKIDS® child ID franchise for the Bossier City/Shreveport Area, and surrounding NW Louisiana parishes, announced Michael J. Childs, DIGIKIDS® 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.
"For many reasons, DIGIKIDS® is the best child identification safety service available today, hands down," John Westfall said. "For one, it affords parents and children complete privacy, because no database of information is ever created, and everything provided by the service is assembled and delivered onsite."
"With privacy protection a key concern for everyone these days, how can we expect to earn the trust of parents if we send the personal information they entrust to us to an offsite facility, as other children ID programs routinely do?" he continued. "In addition, the DIGIKIDS® business card-sized CD makes it easy, enabling parents to provide child identification information to authorities and others quickly and accurately."
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. 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.
"We believe in this product very strongly, and pray parents never have to use it." Peggy Westfall continued, "But the possibility of a child being lost is a reality, and we understand that it's critical to keep up-to-date information and photos of children, if the need arises.
John Westfall has earned a bachelor of business administration in marketing with an emphasis in management. He has been employed in the air conditioning/heating industry for the past 25 years, working during the past eight years in sales and marketing. He volunteers his time with several local charities.
A preschool, kindergarten and first grade teacher for the past 23 years, Peggy Westfall has a master's degree in elementary education.
"Working with young children and their parents is very rewarding" she explained, "and I know keeping children safe and secure is vital to their education and happiness."
John and Peggy were married in January, 2007 and reside in Bossier City with Peggy's two sons, Thomas (12) and Jacob (9).
"We've always wanted to own our own business, and in doing the research to find the right opportunity for John and me, I compared the offerings of many franchises, especially those related to children. We knew we wanted to invest our time and energy into a business that would provide a valuable service to our community. For us, DIGIKIDS® is that business and that unique opportunity," Peggy Westfall added.
Years in development and 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. 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.
"Good parents and good citizens, like John and Peggy Westfall, are exceptional representatives for DIGIKIDS® services," said Childs. "We are proud to welcome the Westfalls to the growing family of dedicated DIGIKIDS® franchisees across the country."
