With all of the conspiracy theory and negative talk surrounding the merger of Comcast cable TV and NBC, the more uplifting news tends to get buried on the back page. Let’s help bring some of the positive news to the forefront.
According to a press release from Comcast, the cable giant is using On Demand technology and the power of its far reaching services to help law enforcement find missing kids. As the press release states, “Comcast’s Missing Kids On Demand and online, produced in partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, features 20 video profiles chronicling missing child cases from across the nation. Each video provides relevant details about the child’s case, including the name of the missing child, city of the disappearance, possible whereabouts, likely abductors and photos. In cases where the child has been missing for a long period, an age progressed photo showing what he/she may look like at a more recent age will also be available. In addition, during the airing of each profile, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s toll-free 24-hour national missing children’s hotline (800-THE-LOST) will be displayed on the bottom of the profile, so viewers can report tips should they have any information.”
With all of the talk of corporate greed and government regulations, it can be easy to forget how much good can from a company the size of Comcast. Missing Kids On Demand is a noble effort to help the children who need it most.
