Dan Snyder Backs Child Safety with NCMEC

Posted by Redskins.com on May 24, 2012 – 5:00 pm

In a recent telephone interview with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), Dan Snyder explained his personal tie to child safety and health. One of his children was born prematurely, and with any premature birth, heightened medical care and attention was required. That period of anxiety for he and his wife Tanya made them decide to focus on charitable activities on issues involving all children. In the interview he said, “[Children] are the gifts we make to the future.”

The program’s outreach safety program creates awareness of dangers children face. The annual program is tied to National Missing Children’s Day each May 25. Parents are urged to take 25 minutes on this day to talk with their children on ways to stay safe.

Snyder pointed to one external area needing improvement when asked about future efforts. He said, “The media and knowledgeable members of the public must be drawn into paying more attention to the Center and its work.” Child safety should be one subject that all agree is of “critical importance” in society.
