Reviews for Kids In Danger

Rating: 5 stars  

As a former intern and current volunteer, I truly enjoyed working with Nancy Cowles and the team in order to create safer regulations for children's products. Being a part of this non-profit has helped me become more self-sufficient as well as a team-player. I have learned what it takes to complete projects in a timely, yet successful fashion. I do recommend any student who needs an internship or volunteer placement to give this organization a call!

KID is a great nonprofit organization that works so hard to improve the safety of children's products in many different ways. I'm so glad of being part of the summer team.

I am really impressed by KID's TEST program that gives young engineers at top universities contemporary design challenges that affect children's products and their safety.

Educational and informative, KID is a helpful advocate for parents and grandparents to keep up-to-date on safety info, recalls, and best practices. Super friendly environment too!

As an intern at KID, it's been incredible to see the dedication that each member of the team brings to the table. KID is full of people who truly want to make the world a safer place for kids. Whether it be sharing recall information and safety advice through social media and workshops, or doing more hands-on projects, like testing products for safety, the team at KID works hard to ensure the safety of children, especially where they should feel safest: in their own home.

I have been interning at KID this summer, and I am really impressed by the work and impact of the organization. KID's efforts to ensure child product safety have brought light to an important issue in our consumer driven society and have also become the voice for many. The staff is constantly busy organizing events, reaching out to people through social media, and contacting various companies and policy-makers to further KID's mission. I am excited to continue interning at KID for the rest of the summer as I learn more about the non-profit world!

As an intern at KID, I've found the staff and office camaraderie to be super welcoming. Being able to work on various projects for KID showed me how dedicated the nonprofit is to advocating for the development of safer children's products, and to interacting with legislation and legislators on that front. All social media is constantly updated for recalls (such as the IKEA recall), and prevention material is always being put out there to educate the public. I would highly urge others to support KID--it's a wonderful organization with a highly important mission.

KIDS in Danger presented to our families last night and we would love for Laura Nikolovska, our presenter, to come back again! The safety of our children is of the utmost importance and this organization is very dedicated to educating the public about the safety of children's products. We also received valuable resources than reinforce child safety.

Kids In Danger is a valuable organization particularly in safekeeping helpless and innocent children and their caretakers in the prevention of harmful and/or disastrous products. Prevention and warnings are the key and Kids In Danger strives to achieve this ultimate goal. I fully support this charitable asset.

Great, underappreciated charity. Their mission is very important, picking up where the government left off.
