Dear Friends,

Thank you for your interest in the Association for the Recovery of Children (ARC). As we embark on a campaign to raise funds for operations, we need your support more then ever.

Our goal is to raise funds necessary for operations (both foreign and domestic) involving the thousands of children missing each year.

To date we have a 100% success rate with a multitude of recoveries, which translates to the fact that no harm ever came to a child reunited with their custodial guardian.

We are proud of these achievements and wouldn’t be where we are today without the many dedicated and generous individuals, foundations, organizations, corporations, and global network affiliates who support us.

We envision building upon collaborative success by equally distributing your financial donations for the recovery of missing and exploited children. No matter how many flyers are printed or how many photos are imaged on milk cartons, at the end of the day a child does not come home until an organization like ARC physically enters the field, locates and safely retrieves that child.

ARC is pleased to submit this request for your review. We look to your partnership in our cooperative efforts to continue the successful rescue of missing, exploited, abducted and often times abused children in the United States and abroad.

Simply stated, a missing child’s only hope of rescue are people like you and I who are willing to donate our time, energy and money to bring them home.

Some people say the best day of their life was their wedding day or the birth of their children. Those were great days for me as well, but if I was to choose the absolute best day of my life it would have to be December 4, 2003. Thursday, December 4, 2003 was the day I was reunited with my abducted daughter. My name is Mandalyn Hanson and this is my story.
