Hughes family donation

Meet the Hughes family!

This adorable little man M is 4 years old and 38lbs - we caught him just before he would have would have outgrown a traditional harnessing car seat (weight limit 40lbs). He will be able to be safely harnessed in this Britax Regent (Sahara cover) for a long time.

Below you will see child passenger safety technician, Chris Carpenter, fit M to his new seat. Prior to installing the seat in the vehicle, the child is put in the seat to make sure the crotch strap and the harness are in the correct slots. Remember, for forward-facing harnessing, the harness should be in slots which are at or ABOVE the child's shoulders.

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 M Huges 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!
