Take 25
Take 25
 

Take 25 is a preventive child safety campaign created by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in honor of National Missing Children's Day. Annually honored on May 25th, this day serves as a reminder to the nation to make child safety a national priority.
Since 1983, our nation has observed May 25th as National Missing Children's Day. First proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan and observed by every administration since, May 25th is the anniversary of the day in 1979 when 6-year-old Etan Patz disappeared from a New York street corner on his way to school.
Designed to raise awareness of the issues surrounding missing and exploited children, the Take 25 campaign encourages parents, guardians, educators, and others to take 25 minutes to talk to children about safety. With a focus on prevention, Take 25 provides communities with free safety resources including safety tips, conversation starters, and engaging activities.
