Find Madeleine Campaign Joins Big Tweet for Missing Children
On International Missing Children’s Day 25 May, 2012 the Find Madeleine Campaign will join Stephen Fry in helping to safely reconnect missing children by taking part in the charity Missing People’s Big Tweet for Missing Children.
The charity will be tweeting a different appeal for a missing child every 30 minutes for 24 hours. The Find Madeleine Campaign is supporting this creative digital campaign by retweeting the appeals that Missing People tweet to their followers.
Stephen Fry, a patron of Missing People said, “A staggering 130,000 children go missing in the
every year. On International Missing Children’s Day (Friday 25 May), I will
once again join the charity Missing People in harnessing the power of Twitter
to help find missing children via The Big Tweet for Missing Children. You can
take part too, by retweeting the appeals for missing children that the charity
will tweet every 30 minutes. UK
On this day, the charity will also be launching 116 000 – the new hotline number to call or text for support if you or someone you love goes missing. So please add #116000 to all your tweets and help to spread the word about this important new number. You never know when someone you love might need it.”
On the same day, the charity Missing People will also be working with the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and Parents & Abducted Children Together (PACT) to launch a new Missing Kids website.
