Recover lost items easily and support MADD Canada

I don’t know how many times I’ve done it. I don’t know how many times hubby, my Mom or friends have done it. You’ve likely done it yourself a time or two. You know…lost your keys, wallet, or cell phone. One time hubby and I found someone’s iPhone 4 on the ground outside a retail store. Happens all the time; you get into a conversation and before you know it, you’ve walk away from a table and left your phone behind and BAM…it’s gone. Sucks!

Well have I got the solution for you!

MADD Canada has teamed up with ReturnMoi Lost & Found to offer a way to recover these items easily and quickly with the MADD Canada Lost & Found Recovery Tags. How uberlicious is that?!

(www.returnmoi.com/maddcanada/)

These little tags can be attached to your cell phones, wallets, keys, laptops, sports gear – just about any portable item you can think of. When you receive your tag, you go to the company’s website and register your information (and can offer a reward for returned items if you so choose). If the item is ever lost, the tag gives the person who found it an easy way to get it back to you. All they do is call the 1 800 number or visit the website on the tag, punch in the ID number to reported it found and then ReturnMoi arranges to have the item returned to you, free of charge.

Shut the FRONT DOOR?!

Nope…it’s true!! And this little treasure isn’t open to just the Canadians; ReturnMoi is international so whether you live in Canada, the US or the UK, you can get yourself MADD Canada Lost & Found Recovery Tags and protect your precious portables.

I know what you are wondering; there’s gotta be a cost.

Yes.

For $10 a tag, you get LIFETIME coverage and 50% of all the sales of MADD Canada Recovery Tags is donated to MADD Canada. So in essence, you pay $5 for a MADD Canada recovery tag with lifetime coverage and make a $5 donation to MADD Canada. Does it get any better?!? I don’t think so…

Not to mention, the super cute MADD Canada Lost & Found Recovery Tags are branded with the MADD Canada logo and the Campaign 911 message so not only would you be safe guarding your portables AND making a donation to MADD Canada, you’d also be visibly promoting MADD Canada’s message to drive sober to all who see it (these people are freaking branding ninja masters…love it!).

Oh…and as a special offer right now, ReturnMoi will supply a second tag (same as one purchased) at no cost.

MADD Canada Recovery Tags can be ordered at: www.returnmoi.com/maddcanada.

ReturnMoi, founded in 2007, is one of the world’s largest lost and found companies. They have an impressive recovery rate of over 80% and have produced over 1,500,000 recovery tags protecting customers’ valuables from all over the world.

Here’s a little information video:

I have a tag on my car keys and on the back of my Blackberry as does hubby. Now to order a couple more for the laptops and the camera!

Ever lost a set of keys, wallet, or something else super valuable? What would you have done to get it back? I’d love to hear your thoughts…

On August 1, 2009, my beautiful mother-in-law’s life was cut tragically short by an impaired driver and my stepson’s life changed forever. In honor of Donna and Jordan Kennie, please don’t drink and drive. Impaired driving is 100% preventable. Think about it.

  1. What a terrific idea. We need a bundle or more! This is great advocacy work and what a great way for MADD Canada to further reach out. My hat is off to RETURNMOI for making this partnership possible.

  2. Coleen Patrick says:

    I’m always patting myself down to make sure I haven’t lost keys, phone, etc. I’m sure I look like a nut job! Thanks for the shout out–you’re going to make my hubs day. He’s been known to check out your blog! 🙂

  3. That is such a super cool idea! I think I need a dozen for my daughter. She’s already lost another phone (I lost count at 42). I love the innovative ideas MADD Canada comes up with! Such smart people working for them, right? Especially the uberlicious volunteers. 😉

    • OMG I think you need to buy her some in bulk. LOL!!
      I agree, it’s so cool the people and partnerships that MADD Canada creates to get the word out and raise awareness and funds. Innovative and cutting edge!
      Awwwwww…we volunteers do our best. 🙂

  4. I’ve been using the War Amps return tags on my car keys for years and now I’m going to order some of MADD’s tags for the phone, Mac, etc. Brilliant!
    Thanks for the shout out, Natalie! We have a ton of fun on our blogs and it’s a good feeling to know we can try to make a difference to important matters as well. Rock on!

    • Yes…I’ve seen and used the War Amps in the past as well Patricia. Thanks for spreading the love around with a few MADD tags too…squeeee!!!
      My pleasure to share the love Patricia. It is soooo fulfilling to know together we can all come together to make a difference and create change for the better – around the corner and around the world! Incredible. Rock on as well my friend. 🙂

  5. for my phone? That’s my nightmare – losing my phone. I’m off to order. thanks Natalie

  6. MADD is BAD says:

    Say no to MADD Canada’s push to see a law that would enable police to randomly pull over Canadians and force them to submit to a breathalyzer without probable cause.

    That kind of law will make Canada no better than North Korea or Nazi Germany.

    I do not support drinking and driving and even I think this proposed law is way over the line and infringes on our Charter of Rights and Freedoms as well as just going against common sense.

    MADD would like to see a draconian police state on our roads where you have no right to free passage. I say no way. MADD is just plain mad.

    • While I appreciate your comment and of course value every side of the coin, I have to say that I disagree with your statements. I would also imagine that if you’ve read my blog and know my story, you’d understand why. I would also guess that if you had a loved one literally tore in half (perhaps your mother or father) while your son watched…you’d likely feel differently as well and perhaps be more supportive of initiatives such as this.

      I encourage you to get further educated on exactly what random breath testing is and why we need it desperately in Canada. MADD Canada has done extensive research and before commenting further, I suggest that you be fully informed as to what RBT is and why it is constitutional:
      You can find information on MADD Canada’s RBT page: http://www.madd.ca/madd2/en/impaired_driving/impaired_driving_public_policy_rbt.html
      As well, there is an extensive research paper on how RBT is not an infringement on our Charter of Rights and Freedoms: http://www.madd.ca/english/research/rbt/Random%20Breath%20Testing%20Opinion_P-Hogg.pdf
      And might I suggest the RBT Q&A: http://www.madd.ca/english/research/rbt/Frequently%20Asked%20Questions%20about%20Random%20Breath%20Testing.pdf

      Not to mention, comparing RBT to the regimes in North Korea and Nazi Germany is a outrageous exaggeration.

      I should mention that Germany HAS Random Breath Testing…perhaps you weren’t aware???

      You do realize that RBT is widely acknowledged as one of the most effective means of deterring impaired driving and it has been adopted in New Zealand, Australia and most European countries, and has helped to reduce overall road crashes and fatalities. Usually by 20% – this would translate into almost 250 lives and over 12,000 injuries saved each year…and save our government BILLIONS of dollars each year…

      Just sayin’….

      Driving is a privilege…not a right! If you want to drive, you need to follow the rules. RBT is NO different than submitting to security screenings at the airport where you may have to submit to a random full body search, your luggage goes through scans and xrays etc…but that is the price you pay if you want to fly. RBT is the exact same thing (actually way less invasive) for driving. If you want to drive, you have to be willing to submit to test to prove you are being safe and sober…if you don’t want to submit to random breath samples, it’s easy – don’t drive. Same with the airport screenings…if you don’t agree to being searched, don’t fly.
