MESSAGES ON DIGITAL BILLBOARDS FOR NATIONAL MISSING CHILDREN’S DAY
FEATURING PHOTOS OF EIGHT MISSING AREA CHILDREN
In 1983 President Ronald Reagan proclaimed May 25 National Missing Children’s Day. Each administration since has honored this annual reminder to the nation to renew efforts to reunite missing children with their families and make child protection a national priority. National Missing Children’s Day is a reminder to all parents and guardians of the need for high-quality photographs of their children for use in case of an emergency, and for the need for everyone to pay close attention to the posters and photographs of missing children.
WHO: The Laura Recovery Center
Clear Channel Outdoor – Houston
WHAT: Donated messages on area digital billboards to mark National Missing
Children’s Day and to help find eight area missing children
WHEN: Friday, May 25, 2012
WHERE: Messages to commemorate the day along with photos of eight area missing children will be rotated on eight digital billboards (see attached list). Messages will be rotated with other messages and will be displayed for eight seconds at a time. Each message will feature a photo a missing child from the area. Hopefully these messages will reach someone with information on these children that will result in leads on these cases.
