The 9th Annual Squeaky Wheel® Tour 2014 is a national concert series consisting of musicians and video personnel touring the USA throughout October and November. SWT partners with local artists in performances where they profile missing persons in over 20 cities; covering over 10,000 miles in less than 30 days. 

Hello, beautiful, loving and generous people! I can't thank you enough for stopping by to check out this opportunity. Your eyes gazing on this page could be the eyes that make that ONE connection needed to bring someone home. 

My name is Jannel Rap. I am passionate about The Squeaky Wheel® Tour for the Missing. My inspiration and beloved sister, Gina Bos,  vanished from Lincoln, NE on October 17, 2000. When Gina disappeared my family was devastated. Her children were paralyzed by grief. None of us knew what to do. She simply vanished. We knocked on every door. We had nowhere else to look or turn. We needed media, but Gina's story did not attract media. Gina represents one of over 850,000 missing persons reports in the year 2000. Only a handful of those reported missing were profiled in the national media. 

The Squeaky Wheel® is the voice for the missing without a media-ready story, You can be their voice by contributing to this campaign.  With your contribution, millions of people will see the faces of the STILL missing: on the side of The Squeaky Wheel® Tour bus, through SWT media, during our concerts and the videos we make of the tour. However, we can’t get on the road without your help. 

  • HELP US GET ON THE ROAD: The monies we raise through this initial campaign underwrites the costs of the website, artwork, posters, office supplies, postage, and insurance. This totals $18,300. This covers the basic needs of the tour. 

As our basic needs are met, we will raise the additional funds needed through Indiegogo Stretch and Partner Campaigns to cover the entire cost of the tour. Our total SWT budget is $148,500. 

Every dollar gets us one mile further down the road.  

Every venue gets us closer to finding another person. Your contribution is essential! 

In appreciation of your generous donation of $200, Our Featured Perk is placing an adhesive backed flyer of a missing person on the side of The Squeaky Wheel® Tour Bus. You will receive acknowledgement for one year on 411GINA.org. This is a wonderful way to help spread awareness of someone you care about. Or an opportunity to highlight someone from our ever-growing database of missing people. 

We also have exclusive campaign-only music and book downloads, and more...

If we don’t reach our entire goal the Squeaky Wheel® Tour will go on. Our amazing database of beautiful GINA/SWT Artists will highlight missing people at their already booked October and November events all over the world.


The Difference ONE Person Can Make 

An elementary student saw a missing persons flyer at her school and another elementary aged student was FOUND. Three days after a NYC event a young man saw his own face in our event promo and called home. 

A teenage girl FOUND out her parents were looking for her via a radio show. A 20 year old cold case was reopened when tips started coming in...

It only takes one missing persons flyer, one tip, one glance at the bus, one media broadcast, one audience member, one event, one voice, one social media share, one encounter, one dollar...

You can be the ONE helping to make a difference!


OTHER WAYS YOU CAN BE THE ONE!

On behalf of the Squeaky Wheel® Tour and all the missing who have no voice...
