“We have to do better. Changes are coming. Now is the time. Don’t be silent.
They’ve established the Gabby Petito Foundation to help reunite missing children with their parents.
The foundation has begun accepting donations and plans are being made to hold a fundraiser on Long Island, New York, on 17 October.
