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.

Kids In Danger's mission is to inform consumers about dangerous products and practices that can injure or even kill a child. their outreach is small but mighty. i am proud to be a donor as they keep the public informed about recalled products, safe practices for sleep, play and travel, and are a voice in Washington for safe products.

I learned about this organization through good friends of mine and I've gladly participated in their fundraisers year after year after learning about the extraordinary things they do to raise awareness of products that pose safety risks for children. A great organization run very well.

As a parent I can't imagine anything worse than experiencing a child being injured or killed by a faulty childrens product. Yet, companies are out there developing children's products that are at times dangerous or have been recalled and they don't do enough to warn parents about potential hazards (or actual recalls). In steps Kids In Danger. If it weren't for child safety advocates like the folks at KID or their strong foundation of loyal donors, professionals and media advocates, more children would be injured due to faulty products. Keep up the good work.

In 1998, when Danny Keysar was killed by a dangerous crib that had actually been recalled five years earlier, my work colleagues, my friends, and my family united to set other concerns aside to wonder how this could have happened. The founders of this group determined to work so that it would not happen again. I became involved because I agree that this work is vital and that steps can be taken to ensure that children's product safety as an issue goes into history. I see how this group focuses precisely on the type of legislation and enforcement that will benefit the development and testing and recall system for these products. It is a very organized and wise (a type of wisdom gained in a way that is too painful to contemplate) team. Sadly, this cause today must remain on the side of the angels....all of the little ones that have been lost and injured because of a system that was cracked and did not protect our most precious assets-our children.
