Children Sitting by a Pond

“I want to thank you for your help and kindness during our search for my daughter….She’s been back for around 16 months now. It’s day by day but things look promising.  Thanks again for all your help and I hope you are richly blessed in the coming year & beyond.”
–Father of Recovered 12 year old Girl 

 Dear Friend,

What do you and every parent want most? All of you want children to be safe. And when a child goes missing it is every parent’s worst nightmare. The parents of a missing child live with persistent heartache and uncertainty over the fate of their missing child. 

May 25th, 2011 marks National Missing Children’s Day in the United States—a day to honor those dedicated to finding missing children and to the safety of all children. May 25th is a day of hope, yet every day in the United States thousands of children go missing.

Donations from people like you allow the Polly Klaas® Foundation to dedicate every day to finding missing children and to preventing children from going missing. Since 1993, the Polly Klaas® Foundation has helped over 7600 families find their missing children and put an end to the nightmare…because we never give up hope.

Please make a generous gift today to ensure that when children need us, we will be there for them every day of the year.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to our work. We truly honor your dedication to children.


Gary Judd, President       Robert De Leo, Executive Director
