FREE At Home ID/DNA Kits!! No Postage or Outside Sources Needed!

FREE At Home ID/DNA Kits!! No Postage or Outside Sources Needed!

Between floods, mudslides, tornadoes, earthquakes  and abduction's it is more important than ever to have ID/DNA on all family members. And it is so easy to do. Below will be 2 different kits YOU can make at home and they are non invasive.

ID Kits:

What you need for each person:
Manila envelope
Plain white envelope
Up to date pictures
A sheet of paper (I prefer a cut piece of poster board)
Nail clippings
A couple strands of hair pulled from the root**
Ink Stamp Pad

Ziploc bag x2
Tape or paste

Tape or paste the photos to the piece of paper. List the child’s name, date of birth, eye color, hair color, any distinguishing features (birthmarks, scars, moles, etc..), finger print the child onto the paper or a separate piece. If you use a separate piece, label it. Place the nail clippings and hair in the white envelope, seal, and label with the child’s name and the date or a Ziploc bag. Place the everything inside the manila envelope, seal, and label again. Put these up out of reach, preferable in a lock box or something. You should update the photos and information at least once a year. If your child is very young, I’d say 5 or younger, then update at least twice a year.

**On getting the hair with root intact use a clean brush, no debris at all. After bath or shower brush hair and with tweezers remove those with roots from the brush. Keep them in a bag with the persons name. This was you can add the ones needed without any trauma.

DNA Kit:

Now, for the first time, parents can sample their children's DNA at home, using household products with the full knowledge that the integrity of the product will be maintained.

Rub a clean (sterile if possible) cotton swab* on inside of cheek until moist. Let air dry for twenty-four hours. Label with child's name and sample date. When dry, place in Ziploc bag, then fold and place that Zip-lock bag in another Zip-lock bag. (double seal) Save in freezer until needed. Follow same procedure for blood sample. However, wait until child scrapes or cuts him/herself before taking sample. Save baby teeth in the same manner.

*You can also use sterile gauze or a clean piece of filter paper.

It is also a good idea for people living in areas where natural disasters happen often to send  ID kits  to an out of State, trusted, relative for safe keeping.

Please pass this information around, it may bring someone home, someone you love.

We can no longer believe it can't happen to us.
