Morey family donation

Meet the Morey family!

This was an interesting donation situation. The family don't personally own a vehicle, but they get rides from friends on a regular basis. Since they had three children and often could be getting rides in vehicles with lap belts only and no top tethers, we put this family down for three Sunshine Kids Radians. The Radian outperforms forward-facing crash test standards without the use of the top tether anchor, so was a perfect solution to ensure these precious ones are kept safe. Also, due to the narrow seat, these seats can be fitted three across on a rear-seat as illustrated below:

Our deep and sincerest thanks go (once again) to the utterly amazing Judi Lambert, CPST, who used her own vehicle to teach the family how to correctly install and secure the children in their new seats.

You can watch this video to see Ms. Morey learning how to install these seats with various types of seatbelts.

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 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!

The foundation is in desperate need of donations - even $1 helps!
