How Can I Help?

Yes, you can help. You can make a difference for these families. So don't just think about it, do it.

I will repeat this post monthly for new readers.

Poster placement has been proven to be one of the most valuable tools in helping to locate a missing person. One of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children's branch offices specifically deals in poster dissemination. Last year, out of a little over 1000 campaigns, over 600 children were located because of these posters!

We have links to printable posters in many places on our site, both on the 18 Wheel Angels page and on the Come Home page. On our forum, you can also find links to printable posters.

You can also participate in our Adopt a Missing Person program. For the price of a self-addressed stamped mailer, you can choose one or several missing persons to adopt. You will be sent a photo button to wear and a personal bio, so that you can share their story with others. Wear the button on your purse, backpack, or coat and give these families hope that they will be reunited.

We also need your help financially in order to continue our work. The competition for charitable dollars is fierce and small nonprofits such as Project Jason depend strictly on the generosity of the public. We are an all-volunteer force. There is no paid staff and little overhead. Our phone bill is one of our largest expenses.

I despise posting this because I never want to give the impression we're all about money, but the realities of it are that we just don't get many donations. We have many, many plans we would like to bring to fruition, but it's going to take money to accomplish those things.

So, if you like what we're doing, please help. If you would prefer, please take a look at the good missing person's organizations in your area, and help them. There are many of us who are small and struggling. I know of one who came very close to getting their phone shut off for non-payment.

Donations can be mailed to:

Project Jason
PO Box 3035
Omaha, NE 68103

Thank you for anything you can do for our cause!
