You have the power to make a difference – worth is measured not by how much you have, but by the number of people you impact! GASP would like you to consider making an impact in one of three ways: YOUR TIME – YOUR MONEY- REFER A FRIEND

  • YOUR TIME – Volunteers are needed to staff fingerprinting events, attend court sentencings, speaking engagements, or help with fundraising events
  • YOUR MONEY – GASP is a 501(C)3 organization, so donations are tax deductible
  • REFER A FRIEND – Ask a friend to join you at our events

If you are looking to make a donation before year end, please consider GASP!

Twenty five years ago, Soul Asylum’s “Runaway Train” music video featured images of missing children, and helped close 21 cases. If one video could recover that many children, how many can we find with the power of new technology and social media?

For the 25th anniversary, we re-imagined “Runaway Train” with new artists, and a dynamic music video that updates itself with missing children from the NCMEC database, specific to a viewer’s location.


Help us raise $1,000 for our programs!
