Grider family donation

Meet the Grider family!

These adorable boys will be safely harnessed in two Britax Regents that the foundation donated in May of 2009. Above you can see the boys just after they have been fitted to their seats - this is the stage that the slot to route the harness through the seat is determined. The harness should be in slots at or above the child's shoulders.

The foundation sought assistance from a local Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) to install and educate the family about correct installation and usage of these seats. We wish to heartily thank Casey Sanders for her time and expertise.

"I want to thank the Kyle David Miller Foundation for contacting me and giving me the opportunity to work with the foundation in helping a family in need. Mrs. Grider was very thankful for the car seats. Mrs. Grider was very concerned about the safety of her children. In my experience there are a lot of people out there that are just looking for a hand out. I don't believe that is true in this case. I believe this was a great choice that the foundation made. Mrs. Grider has two sets of twins. I also inspected the other two car seats and they were installed correctly. Mrs. Grider said she has been on the waiting list for approximately one year but the wait was worth it. If there is anything I can do in the future to assist the foundation please let me know. I would be glad to help out.

Thank you,

Casey Sanders

Each seat the foundation donates costs approximately $200. We have a waiting list of ~100 families at any given time - all consisting of children who are at risk whilst they await our ability to assist. Please consider a donation to the foundation of any size you can afford, to help keep more children like the Grider boys safe. You can donate using PayPal to the right of our blog, or you can donate using Debit/Credit/Check. Details are here. Thank you so much for your support and dedication to keeping children safe!
