We had an excellent presentation by Greg Smith of the Kelsey Smith Foundation at a recent conference. Excellent information! I highly recommend them. I'm buying whistles for all of the females in my family and the information about the LifeLine app was great. I'm checking that out, too. Thank you Greg and Missy. You are awesome!

Kelsey Smith foundation is very easy and a pleasure to follow...it's a very informative and interesting, not only about Kelsey and what happened to her and her family but also about community events and awareness as well as fundraising. It's heartbreaking what happened to this kind, loving family and the foundation helps the general public, who didn't know Kelsey, contribute something towards the family to let them know that the world supports the and cares about them.

I am extremely impressed with the Foundation's work with children and law enforcement. The Safety Aawareness seminars and self defense training help to ensure that kids stay save. Most importantly I appreciate the Foundation's continued advocacy for the Kelsey Smith Act. The act provides law enforcement with a way to quickly ascertain the location of a wireless telecomm device if law enforcement has deemed a person to be at risk of death or serious physical harm. The act has been adopted in several states and hopefully soon on the federal level. Many thanks to the Smith's for their continued efforts.
