Helping To Find Missing Children With QR Codes

Helping To Find Missing Children With QR Codes

A QR code generator with a social value:

When we said that our dynamic QR codes could be used for anything we weren’t kidding. Some organizations such as Child Quest International, Missing Children and Amber Alert are using uQR.me to create QR codes to help find missing children all around the world. These non-profits are taking action with new and innovative technologies like uQR.me to draw attention to important causes. Stephen Watkins is one of those people who has taken the technological leap and started to use QR codes in his Missing Children campaigns, to help in the search of his young sons Alexander and Christopher who were taken by their mother in 2009 and are now living somewhere in Europe.

So how does this work exactly? uQR.me gives them options. The people who work for these organizations could write a descriptive detail of the child that’s missing, including their eye color, height, age, when they were last seen and any other crucial information that could help the viewer identify the child. This information can be linked to a QR code in various ways. One of the options is writing the information and pasting a picture of the child onto the uQR.me Leaf, instantly creating a mobile landing page out of that content. Another way to catch people’s eyes is to make a video, including old videos of the child and then linking the final video to the YouTube or URL Option.

uQR is the only QR code generator and social network that not only offers its users to link its QRs to YouTube, a mobile landing page, and a URL, but also lets people link their QR codes to their vCard, sell their stuff with PayPal, share the love with other uQR.me members and more.

      Hola Juan!
      You can connect your QR code to the video via youTube or upload the video directly to the QR.
      You will find those tools in your account 🙂

      cheers!
