CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 10, 2011) - This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Missing Children Society of Canada (MCSC). To mark the occasion, MCSC is announcing the launch of "I STOP", their national grassroots campaign to end child abduction. I STOP aims to engage Canadians in taking a personal action against abduction – with every action, no matter how small or large, combining to end child abduction in Canada. 

Leading the way is Nate Hall, a young and rising recording artist from Waterloo, ON. Nate has stepped forward as the first face – and voice – of the I STOP movement. As his debut release, Nate has recorded a hauntingly soulful single for MCSC entitled "Things", which was recorded at the Calgary-based studio Ear Candy.

100% of the proceeds from downloads of Nate's single "Things" on iTunes is being donated to MCSC's search for missing children. Visit for a link to the single.

"Nate's generous action is a perfect example of what our I STOP movement is all about," explained Amanda Pick, Executive Director of MCSC. "People and corporations across Canada are finding a personal way to bring an end to child abduction – often its things that they are already doing."

"Our I STOP movement calls on Canadians to connect with their own communities in a way that is meaningful to them, and join us in the search for our missing children."

Since 1986, MCSC has operated comprehensive hands-on investigative programs to assist police and searching families in the ongoing search for abducted and missing children. MCSC is the only non-profit organization in the country that conducts frontline investigations for missing children.
