Helotie family donation

Meet the Helotie family!

This family received two Britax Regents from the foundation for their two youngest children, ages 6 and 4 years old, 43 and 33lbs. Child Passenger Safety Technician, Joy Miller, taught the family how to correctly install and use these seats - our deepest thank to Joy!

We received a lovely note from Ms. Helotie in thanks for the seats that we would like to share with you:

"I wanted to let you know that Ms. Joy Miller came out to our home and installed our two new Regents today. We were impressed with her professionalism, her willingness to show me how to adjust and install the seats in my truck for my children, and her cheerfulness in dealing with excited little people! We highly recommend her for anyone else in our area!

[My children] are most thankful for their gifts! [My son] cannot undo his buckles now without help, which will keep him safely seated when in the truck. His autism does not always allow him to think clearly about safety issues, so this is a huge blessing.

Soon after installation, I took everyone for a quick ride…and both of my little ones claimed that they were too cozy to get out of the truck! Even in our 95’ heat today, they wanted to stay IN their seats, and not get out!

Thank you so very much for choosing our family to receive this wonderful gift of love. Our children are safely buckled and comfortable….and that is a peace of mind that no money can buy.

Lucette Helotie"

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 Simons' boy 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!
