Amber Alert Ticker

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.

All you have to do is click onto my Amber Alert Ticker widget. There web page will appear. In there upper right hand corner on the above tabs, click on 'Get Ticker.' Then another window will appear. You can leave your e-mail if you'd like, but don't have to. You just click onto 'get code for your web page at the bottom of that page. Then your javascript code will appear. Copy that code by right clicking the code. Then go over to your blog to your layout. Click where it says to add gadget. Then scroll down until you find your javascript and click onto that. When the little box appears, paste that code into the box and click SAVE. Then click SAVE on your blog. You need to save it two times. Go to your blog and it should appear in your sidebar. If your having trouble e-mail me and I will talk you through it.

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 . 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
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
Do you Twitter? Now you can follow Code Amber at, 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.

    Thanks I will be happy to be on your blog roll and happy to have you as a wonderful friend.

  2. That widget is really neat! I think it is the most important as well.

  3. It's definitely important! We have Amber Alerts posted on changing signs on I10 up in Houston. Plus they give them out on MySpace now too. I think that's awesome. The more people that know, the better chance a child has to get back home!

  4. Anne - what a great idea. I'm surprised this has not come out earlier with all this technology. I am going to try to figure it out and if not, I will definitley email you. Thanks!
