Our goal with the Spokeo Search Angels Awards program is to honor and award nominated Search Angels while bringing public awareness to their important, selfless work in connecting family members separated by adoption or other events. In order to help defray the multiple costs of using various databases and other search tools, Mixed Roots is offering cash grants to help offset searching costs and Spokeo is donating free Spokeo subscriptions to nominated Search Angels who plan to continue to help search on behalf of adoptees, their families and others who have been separated from family. Spokeo will also be offering additional grants, which may include travel or other related expenses, for those who cannot afford the costs of a reunion. We plan to share approved success stories which may include photos and/or videos on the Spokeo Search Angels website. We look forward to promoting the services that are provided by the award winners, inspiring new Search Angels, and assisting those needing to connect with an experienced Search Angel through a trusted and verified Search Angel network. We encourage regular feedback from the winners on their searching practices as well as their experience using the various search tools that are supported and provided by the Mixed Roots Foundation and Spokeo. It is very important that we continue to grow and improve this program so that we can continue aiding existing and future search angels.
