Project Jason
March 5, 2013

I could spend allllllll day talking about how much I love Kelly and her group of volunteers. This woman is smart, loving, devoted and all while working full time and searching for her own missing son. The services offered are amazing. When you first start out in the world of missing persons, its really hard. But you are focused on the physicalities. Not the emotional impact. Project Jason not only works to increase awareness to prevent missing persons, but they take care of your heart while it's all going down. Absolutely invaluable organization and like I said, I could go on all day. Amazing!

First, before I write my review, I'd like to point out that I noticed all of the bad reviews were written on the same day.... by people who signed up for an account specifically to attack this organization. Sounds fishy to me.

My Mom was missing for 6 years and in those 6 years I have had the pleasure and displeasure of working with many different organizations. Even after her remains were found strewn across the hot desert hills in Death Valley, I continue to help families of the missing as a friend and supporter.

I have not personally gained from Cynthia's service but I know plenty of people who have. I have connected with Cynthia via helping other families and she is one of the first people I would recommend to people for creating beautiful posters and getting information out about missing loved ones.

She is so devoted that when I first met her, she had just had surgery and was supposed to be on bed rest but was online helping me through something. She even uses her pinterest account to share missing loved one's information as well as handling a blog. Brilliant!

I would like to point out from personal experience that you don't HIRE a missing persons organization. If you do... then THEY are wrong. They offer services and you should ask for their help, but don't feel obligated to pour your heart and soul and wallet into any of these organizations. They are providing a service that donors pay for. You can use as many or none at all if you wish. Say thank you, but that is all you really owe any of these orgs. Everything they are doing for your missing loved one.... you can do yourself. They don't have magic powers or insane amount of connections. They are people just like you and me. Remember that.

As far as making a facebook page in honor of a missing person.... if you are not requested by the person's family... Don't Do it! Maybe make one that says "Friends of.......". If there is one put up by the family and moderated by an organization, they will try to get you to shut yours down. Not because of territorial-ism, but because if a tip goes to a random facebook page and not to the family... it can get lost in cyberspace and that is so unfair. Contact the family or the org working with the family and run it by them first. I would have been mortified if someone had a facebook page for my mom and I didn't know who it was. I would think it was someone who had to do with her disappearance trying to take information away.

I hope this perspective is more helpful than harmful.
