Hello my fellow bloggers. I'm sure you noticed that I now have an Amber Alert Ticker widget on my blog in the upper right hand corner. If you would like to put one on your blog, it's really easy.
To my surprise, I received an e-mail from them and I thought I share it with you all.

****** Code Amber Transitions to Code Amber News Service - CANS***
It has been since October of last year that I have sent you news about Code Amber. At that time we were struggling through a very rough time.To those of you who helped us through, we extend our heartfelt thanks.
Well, we made it and things are looking very bright for our future. In December, Code Amber was acquired by GTX Corp. You may have seen reference to GTX on the web site. With the resources of GTX behind us,Code Amber moved into 2009 bigger and stronger with new initiatives and services to expand our reach and enhance our abilities to find missing children.
Our goal is simple, we intend to become the "better people finder".
The first new initiative was to create the "CANS Missing Endangered Alert"for missing children that do not meet the strict criteria for an Amber Alert.You have probably seen the two recent CANS alerts on your ticker. We work directly with the local Law Enforcement Agency to collect the data we need to stay up to date with developments in each case. Due to the huge number of missing children reports, we will need to be selective of the cases we publish.
Also, in addition to our current XML feed which distributes Amber Alerts only (the Code Amber News Feed), we will be creating a new CANS Feed that will distribute CANS Alerts for missing endangered children who's cases do not meet the criteria for official Amber Alerts. For more information on the CANS Feed please visit http://codeamber.com/xml_application.php . There is also a link on that page to a PDF document with a thorough explanation of the current feed. Watch for the introduction of our new CANS Alert feed later this month.
We also initiated a new page on the site to recognize Government Agencies at the Federal, State and local levels that run our Ticker or link to Code Amber.In the past few weeks, we have identified over 170 of them. We know there are many more. Help us by letting us know of other agencies that run the Ticker or link to us by contacting us through http://codeamber.com/index-6.php
If you are affiliated with any Federal, State or local agency, please encourage that agency to add the Code Amber Ticker, or a link, to their web site.Then let us know so we can provide a link back.The current list is located at http://codeamber.com/lelinks.php
Do you Twitter? Now you can follow Code Amber at twitter.com, user Code Amber.
Stay tuned for more new and innovative initiatives and services from Code Amber.
Without you, what we have accomplished thus far would not have been possible.

So there you have it bloggy friends. If you would like to put this Amber Alert ticker on your blog just follow my easy instructions. Personally, I do think this is the best widget that I have ever came across. And the most important one, for sure.
