Just wanted to share about our non profit IfiNeedHelp.org. Our son Jay has Autism and was lost a couple times in the past. Since he is low verbal this was very scary for us. So we wanted a way to let people know he needs help and how to help him. We came up with personal wearable QR codes that link to the person's live profile. Now people who may not be able to self advocate during an emergency for any reason are utilizing this. Also, with the free membership is the caregiver controlled special needs registry. The answers about medical needs and other accommodations can be filled in and emailed to a first responder during a crisis. Please contact me if you have any questions This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. :)
