They must not be forgotten

Start the conversation today

Every day, children across the country find themselves in potentially risky situations.

That’s why the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children continues to pioneer prevention programs such as Take 25—our national campaign that encourages adults to sit down with the children in their lives and take 25 minutes to talk about safety.

We’re asking our supporters to help us get the word out.

Here’s what you can do.

First, start the conversation with a child you love today.

You can find a wealth of useful information on our Take 25 website that will guide you, including:

  • Materials to help start the conversation about safety with the child in your life, including safety in the neighborhood, in the home and online.
  • Activity sheets for children.
  • Information sheets for children.
  • And much more!

Second, make a special donation to help support our possibly lifesaving prevention programs such as Take 25!

We are the leading charity working with law enforcement on the issues of missing and exploited children, and we rely on support from friends like you who share our passion for protecting children. By committing yourselves to raising awareness and funds for prevention, you’ll be impacting the lives of so many children.

So please make the most generous contribution you can. And then set aside some time today to "Take 25" with a special child in your life.
