Newton family donation

Meet the Newton family!

We donated a total of 4 Britax Regents to the family for their 8, 6, 4 and 2 year old (not pictured)children. Normally we would encourage a family to train an 8 year old to sit correctly in a booster seat, but this particular 8 year old is just over 40lbs and on the smaller side, so we complied with her parents wishes that she remain harnessed for as long as possible.

Many thanks to CPS tech Beth Heifner for installing and teaching the family on installation and usage of these seats.

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 Newton 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!
