THE SQUEAKY WHEEL TOUR FUNDRAISER! Oct 17-Nov 4. Artists internationally highlight missing persons at their events. GINA circles U.S.in bus.
The object of the Squeaky Wheel Tour is to gain as much media and community support for local missing persons throughout the world. GINA partners with entertainers to educate the public about local missing persons. There are approx 690,000 missing persons reports each year in the US. Most missing persons disappear without a media ready story. The Squeaky Wheel events aid the families in gaining media attention. The families of the missing attend the events and tell their stories whenever possible. Our video crew films the events and the families stories. We create YOU TUBE video's when the tour is over to further spread the word.
By the support of the families of the missing, the local police, partner nonprofits, the people that attend the events and take flyers to post, the media that profiles the missing and the viewers, listeners and readers that observe the media tips come in, people are found and cases are solved. We are able to highlight more people and gain more media for the missing during this time of year than any other time.
PLEASE HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE for the FAMILIES and their MISSING Loved ones! YOUR DONATION just might be the one to BRING THEM HOME!
GINA for Missing Persons FOUNDation’s mission is to educate the public by utilizing entertainment to create awareness and media attention for missing persons world-wide, and to offer a source of information to help people whose family members become missing. GINA's goal is to uncover "missing pieces to find the missing." By opening their hearts and doors, those in the music industry and the sponsors who participate are promoting an ongoing effort of raising awareness of the missing while being a bridge to all forms of media. GINA was created in honor of musician Gina Bos, who disappeared from Lincoln, NE in October of 2000 after a performance. Her case remains unsolved.
