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.

Ask the Director to demand the President of the USA to put her on as his advisor for children's safety

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.

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

My friends and family are now very alert and sensitive to this issue in their daily lives. Baby shower lists are scoured and the gifts that are received are scrutinized with an eye toward ensuring that the goods are safe.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

My wish is for this organization to grow nationwide at a statewide level so that each state can get the same benefits as those we have seen in Illinois.

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

I have celebrated the legislative and enforcement successes that this group has earned through hard work. Making kids safer makes me happy.

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

Top flight staff and volunteers--all working toward the same goal.

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

Continue and broaden its great work---

Ways to make it better...

this problem of product safety did not exist--until it's gone, I will support this group.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The scale of the problem versus the scale of the organization--but that weight is shifting--right makes might.....

One thing I'd also say is that...

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
