According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, roughly 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States -- that's roughly 2,000 per day. Facebook reaches 1.6 Billion people a day. I think the importance is pretty simple. Each of these children matter. They deserve for us as a community to do everything possible to bring them home. Awareness for them is key and running their faces on Facebook ads would bring more awareness than any other one place I can think of.
- Facebook and The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
As concerned citizens and Facebook users we would like to ask Facebook to run the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's fliers in the Ads sections of Facebook. Help get awareness for the thousands of children listed with the NCMEC. I am sure you can get sponsors for such an important project if they are needed.
