"Taking a page out of the US military's handbook, parents in China have printed up playing cards with photos of their missing children in an effort to find them, state press reported.
The first batch of 10,000 playing cards with photos of 27 missing children were printed this month in the eastern province of Jiangsu, according to Xinhua news agency. Families of the missing children each paid 600 yuan (75 dollars) to have their child's photo placed on the cards, Shen Hao, the organizer of the project, told Xinhua. Telephone numbers of people who can be contacted if someone recognizes the child are placed under each photo." AFP, Yahoo News Link to Article (last visited 8-7-06 NVS)
