Land family donation

Meet the Land family!

This seat was installed on Memorial Day by CPST Robyn Atkins whom the foundation greatly thanks for her time and expertise!

Did you know that the every car seat the foundation donates is shipped to a Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST)? We do this to ensure that our recipient families receive an education session where they learn how to install their seat in their vehicle and how to correctly use the seat. The national average of seat MISUSE is 85%, so we hope that by making our donations in this manner, we are ensuring that our recipient families are not part of that statistic!

Ms. Land had some kind words for the foundation that we wanted to share with you:

"I cannot begin to thank you enough. B has not been out of the seat while driving at all. In fact he almost falls asleep in the seat every time we go in the car.

Because of you and your foundation my son is safe and in a car seat every time we go in the car."

Here's a short video (a first for us!) of the Regent being installed by Ms. Land!

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 M 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!
