What is FoundIt!, and how does it work? It's actually very simple. When you sign up for this service, you will be sent a series of labels and tags that you can affix to all of your valued possessions. This is especially great for back to school, since kids will have new lunch boxes, computers, calculators and bags that can get left in a number of different places. Kids often misplace things when their routines are changed, and back to school is right around the corner! I remember I once left my backpack on the bus, and it took me over a week to have it returned to me! This did not go over too well with my Language Arts teacher, as I had an essay in my bag that ended up being grossly overdue. If I had FoundIt! available at that time, all the finder would have to do is log onto the FoundIt website and report my item found, using a special, personalized ID number found on each and every label. You can even report found items by text message!
Once FoundIt! receives word that your items have been found, you will be notified within seconds via e-mail or text message, and you can be reunited with your lost item. No personal info is ever visible, and your family can rest assured that this private information will never be made available to anyone. This is a MUCH better option than putting labels with your phone number or address on your belongings, as this can make your family vulnerable to an array of not-so-nice occurrences by not-so-nice people. With FoundIt!, this risk is completely non-existent. Your private info remains private, and your belongings will make it home, safe and sound!
Signing up for FoundIt! was easy. All I had to do was provide the service with my address, e-mail address, and phone number. That's it! They then assigned me with my own unique identification number, and sent their MacDaddy package to me in the mail. It arrived with lightning speed, and ready to attach to all of my family's belongings.
There were a large number of different sized labels, as well as waterproof, laminated luggage or purse tags. They even feature cute sayings that will encourage the finder to return the lost item, such as "Help! My owner is locked out!" I put these labels on everything from cameras, keyrings, diaper bags, mp3 players, my purse, and my husband even put the credit-card sized tag in his wallet. My son even insisted on putting a small tag on his dog's collar just in case she decides to escape the yard while trying to chase down an unsuspecting woodland critter! So as you can see, FoundIt! can be used in so many ways!
You can sign up for this amazing service on the FoundIt! website.
