Rhe American Guild for Infant Survival, and its military affiliate, the American Forces Guild, has been at the leading edge of the challenge of reducing infant mortality from SIDS and other causes. They are the ones that got the home infant monitoring program for high-risk infants going across the USA and around the world. They developed a screening test that spots "nornal" infants who are actually at high risk of SIDS and other illnesses which greatly American infant death rates from all causes.They were the ones who started the campaign to get servicemens group life insurance coverage for military FAMILIES, not just the service members. In addition, they have been holding monthly meetings for families who have lost children to SIDS and other causes. They do not charge for their services, and have never taken a penny of government or United Way money, depending on their own fund-raising efforts. This organization is awesome!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the reduction of infant mortality in America and around the world. On a personal basis, I have seen many lives changed for the better.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

they give everyone a real chance to make a difference

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

decent, dedicated human beings. They relied on "hands-on research" and were not intimidated by "Medicine, Inc." Virtually ALL of the improvements this oprganization has made actrually cost little or no money to implement.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

significantly reduce infant mortality on a global scale. Their work has been phenomenal, especially since they are small and without a paids staff or budget.
