GINA for Missing Persons FOUNDation’s mission is to educate the public by utilizing entertainment to create awareness and media attention for missing persons world-wide, and to offer a source of information to help people whose family members become missing.
GINA for Missing Persons FOUNDation was created in honor of Gina Bos, who disappeared from Lincoln, NE in October of 2000 after a performance. Her case had no scandal or suspect; she simply vanished. With no media hook, it became her family's challenge to create ways to gain attention for her and the thousands of people that simply vanish each year.
GINA's goal is to uncover "missing pieces to find the missing." By opening their hearts and doors, major recording artists and sponsors are promoting an ongoing effort of raising awareness of the missing while being a bridge to all forms of media.
To date, GINA for Missing Persons FOUNDation has helped to find over 500 missing persons. For more information or to participate as an artist or volunteer, please call 1-877-411-GINA.
Each year, GINA For Missing Persons produces The Squeaky Wheel® Tour, a world-wide event consisting of talented musicians performing shows and profiling missing persons in their area.
