2 SMRT 4U™   TYPE SMART. POST WISELY.
Reports of online enticement of children by Internet predators to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC) increased 150% in 2006 as compared to 2005. The U.S. Postal Inspection Service® and NCMEC teamed up to create the 2 SMRT 4U™ campaign to respond to that increase. This campaign encourages teens to type smart and post wisely when they are online.
The goal of the 2 SMRT 4U campaign is to teach teens to rememder to navigate the Internet responsibly. The campaign is in support of the U.S. Attorney General's initiative, Project Safe Childhood, which was designed to help protect children from online exploitation.

'The U.S. Postal Inspections Service is pleased that the 2 SMRT 4U campaign has reached teens with an Internet safety awareness message not only nationally but internationally - with interest from more than 50 countries. If only 1 child was influenced and steered out of harm's way as a result of this campaign, then we have made a meaningful difference and accomplished what we set out to do.' -Chief Postal Inspector, Alexander Lazaroff

2SMRT4U.com includes online safety tips, fun downloads, real-life stories adapted from NCMEC cases, and a link to report incidences of online enticement.
