In order to get this free help, all a person who has lost an important item (ring, necklace, bracelet, earring, keys, cell phone, etc.) needs to do is go to the Group website and fill out a Lost Item Report form. Once the form is received and reviewed, the report will be emailed to each of the Group volunteers who have signed up to search in the area where the item is lost. If upon receiving the report a volunteer is available to search, he or she will contact the person who filed the report to arrange to perform a search. If the search is successful the lost item is returned to the owner. If the search isn’t successful, or if a volunteer isn’t immediately available to help, the Lost Item Report will remain on the website’s Lost Item Page for 90 days so the volunteers will know the item is still lost and needs to be searched for.
As is stated on the website, the Group’s Volunteers do not charge a fee for their services, nor do they expect a reward when they are successful. Their only goal is to help people in need, because they all believe it’s just the right thing to do.
The LostMyStuff Group has been in existence since Fall of 2010. It was created by John Hawken while he was home waiting for a heart transplant. Since that time it has grown to over 2,300 members and has helped people find over 320 items around the world for FREE !!!
