The KlaasKids Print-A-Thon (click to see calendar) has been successfully hosted by hundreds of auto dealers, hospitals, radio stations, banks, grocery stores, shopping centers and major corporations.
The KlaasKids Print-A-Thon is a high energy child safety event. Utilizing 21st Century technology, the Foundation fingerprints and photographs children, provides their parents with DNA Collection Kits, pro-active child safety information; and a nine-point plan on what to do if children disappear.
Always free to the public, the KlaasKids Print-A-Thon has been serving America’s families for more than a decade. Since 1994, the KlaasKids Print-A-Thon has fingerprinted and photographed more than 1,000,000 children at no cost to families and without databasing personal or private information. The Print-A-Thon is always underwritten by community minded sponsors who wish to give back to their loyal customers.
Child safety is a family priority; making the Print-A-Thon a perfect “Cause Related” marketing event. Demonstrate your commitment to current and potential customers by bringing a value packed, high energy event to your community.
The Print-A-Thon utilizes imaging systems originally developed for federal law enforcement agencies by Sentry Technology that integrate digitized computer technology to fingerprint and photograph children quickly without ink or film. Parents immediately receive an English or Spanish language 81/2 X 11 inch Bio-Doc®, featuring forensic quality, magnified fingerprints, updated photograph, and blank form fields for personal and identifying information. The back of the Bio-Doc provides safety rules for kids, safety suggestions for parents, instructions for properly storing DNA samples using household items and the 9-step emergency plan. Since the Foundation does not database children’s personal or private information privacy is guaranteed. Parents receive the only existing copy of the “Bio-Doc”®.
On event day a trained KlaasKids Foundation coordinator will fingerprint and photograph children for as many as six-hours. Since it only takes between 1 and 2 minutes to serve each child, hundreds of families can take advantage of this free service during the course of the event. Because the Foundation utilizes computerized/digitized technology we are able to develop magnified, forensic quality fingerprints on children as young as 3-months old: a feat that no other system can duplicate.
