I had the chance to intern with KID this summer and so far, I can say I've learned so much about the nonprofit world and what it takes to sustain an organization. Even though the organization's staff size is small, they are doing incredibly big things and doing many important things to keep children safe. Everyone involved with this organization is involved because they deeply care about the cause! I believe Kids In Danger can change the way the general consumer public looks at children's product safety and I wish them only the best in the future.

I started working with KID (Kids In Danger) this past April (2015). I absolutely love it! The ladies (Nancy, Laura & Karen) are so awesome. They are not only well versed in their respective areas of the organization, but they genuinely enjoy what they do and believe in the message KID embodies. I really love the energy of the office and how everyone is there to help, encourage and guide. I truly appreciate all of the kindness and appreciation the ladies have shown me. They make me feel that I am just as much as a vital team member (not just a volunteer) as anyone else, which further fuels my desire to be more involved. Because of KID, the work they do and the ladies, I have decided to get into nonprofit as a career!

Thanks for all that you do!!

I started working with Kids in danger recently and I respect the work they are doing for improving children's product safety and educating the people about the products. Laura Nikolovska and Laura Ford are amazing people to work with and they are really flexible. I am happy to support them.

During my volunteer job at KID, I can see that KID is a very well-managed organization. They are working hard for children's product safety, no matter through educating parents via several ways or fundraising. Also, the staffs are so nice to work with that I really enjoy working at KID. I am glad to support such a wonderful organization.

Linda Ginzel and Boaz Keyser are two of the strongest people I have ever met. With true compassion, they have taken their personal tragedy and created an agency to prevent another family from enduring their pain. Kids in Danger works to improve the safety of children's products and educate people about product recalls. The small staff works tirelessly to spread life saving information. KID truly cares about the greater good. I'm proud to work with them.

I became involved with KIDS IN DANGER a little over a year ago. This group of dynamic volunteers and small staff work tirelessly to improve product safety for all of our children, grandchildren, friend's children, etc. I am honored to work with a group that does so much on a minimal budget. Bravo and a million thanks for safeguarding our most precious little ones!!!!! Ellen Weller

I offer my services to Kids in Danger at a reduced rate because I respect them and believe in the work they are doing. They work hard for very important issues of safety for children's products. I have worked directly with several staff members and every one of them is smart, efficient and dedicated. They are a pleasure to work with and I applaud the good work they are doing. Their work makes a difference in the lives of many- past, present and future!

I worked at KID over the summer for 10 weeks through the University of Chicago. I definitely value what I learned there, and it helped me understand more about the nonprofit world, the world of recalls and product safety, and the kind of job I would like to pursue. The staff does so much, gives 110% every day! :)

I volunteer with KID because I love co-founder Linda Ginzel, my inspirational mentor, and because of the necessary work that KID does. Executive Director Nancy Kowles is fantastic, so easy to work with, and runs a tight ship. The entire team makes KID an effective organization. When you donate your time and money, you know it will really go towards making a difference. In an ideal world, there wouldn't be a need for such an organization, but until then, there's KID. In short, KID is great people and great cause.

I had an absolutely wonderful time working at Kids In Danger. Kids In Danger is a unique organization--it addresses an issue (child product safety) that many people are simply not aware about and it does so in innovative ways. KID combines working with law makers, research on child products, providing information to parents and caregivers, and more, as it improves child product safety across the country.
