Celebrating 5 Years of Crime Junkie
Can you believe it, Crime Junkies?! We’re celebrating 5 incredible years this year! We wouldn’t be who we are without you—the fans who have been with us from the beginning. This anniversary is dedicated to YOU and with that said, we had to make it official. National Crime Junkie Day will now be recognized as a national holiday on December 18, 2022!
Countdown until National Crime Junkie Day
Let’s Show the World What it Means to be a True Crime Junkie
Crime Junkie (n): a person who can’t get enough true crime and wants to make a positive impact. Lives by the phrase:
“be weird, be rude, stay alive.”
So many of you have already shown the world what it means to be a Crime Junkie. From signing petitions and writing letters, to donating your time and money, you have demanded justice and advocated for victims and their loved ones when they need it most. The best way to celebrate 5 years of Crime Junkie is to continue doing just that.
Because of you all, over the past 5 years we’ve been able to partner with non-profits across the globe to help solve cold cases, locate missing persons, fund DNA testing, advocate for marginalized communities, and more. We are so proud to support these organizations and the incredible work they’re doing. Learn more here and consider donating.
