Help us save children’s lives!

An AMBER Alert is used by the police to directly alert the entire nation in urgent cases of child abductions and disappearances. When an AMBER Alert is issued, the picture of the child is immediately visible everywhere: on highway signs, websites, billboard screens, your own mobile phone, you name it.

In the last few years, an average of four AMBER Alerts was issued yearly. In 64 percent of these cases, the child was found thanks to tips that came in on the AMBER Alert. This makes AMBER Alert the most successful citizen participation initiative in the Netherlands and a great example of effective crowdsourcing.

64 percent is of course already phenomenal. But it is not enough. It is never enough. With your help, we can increase this number. So please help us:
