Tips for enjoyable and safe outings
Every year in Canada, dozens of children get lost in public places. This experience is a harrowing one for both the parents and the child. It is so easy for both adults and children to become easily distracted by all the excitement and attractions and it only takes a few seconds for a young child to disappear. We encourage you to take a few minutes to plan your next outing and don’t forget to include your children in that process. By planning ahead of time, the experience will be a more enjoyable one from beginning to end!
Please consider the following when planning outings in public places:

“It’s a privilege to be able to contribute to your efforts in keeping our children safe. When I saw the stats particularly for Quebec, it really hit home the urgency to continue to educate our kids on the hazards that exist and ways to keep themselves safe.”Suzy
Since I have been donating to your organization, I have been very lucky not to have lost any of my children and I now have 4 grandchildren! I will always continue to support this cause that is very dear to me. Losing a child for a mere 20 seconds is such a dreadful feeling, and I could never ever imagine feeling like this until my child was returned home. I wish that so many other parents could share the same blessing I have had. My heart goes out to everyone who has a missing child. Keep up the fantastic work Pina , please. You and your team are amazing!!Sandra Bolduc
