Jackson, New Jersey (PRWEB) January 23, 2009
Andrew and Beneitha Johnson have been selected to offer the exclusive DIGIKIDS® child ID franchise for the Monmouth County area, 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.
"The security of our two-year-old son was the driving force behind our decision to seek the best child-identification service available," explained Andrew Johnson. "But, at the same time, we were searching for a business opportunity like DIGIKIDS®, and in the process, we've discovered a superior way of providing child safety identification and alerting the authorities in the event a child becomes lost."
"With DIGIKIDS®, we not only found a child-identification service with a distinct difference, but a proven business opportunity, as well."
Having both worked for more than 15 years in information technology positions, the Johnsons were eager to apply their collective energy to their own business.
"Working long hours, weekends and holidays wasn't something we avoided," Beneitha Johnson said. "We concluded our time and resources were better applied to making our own business succeed.
"Now, we feel like genuine child safety advocates for our community, as well as entrepreneurs representing a great product and service."
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.
"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 his disappearance," explained John Walsh, founder of NCMEC.
"Parents like Andrew and Beneitha Johnson have a unique understanding of the important roles safety and peace of mind play in underpinning happy family lives," Michael Childs said. "We are proud they have joined the growing family of DIGIKIDS® franchisees."
